Good-Bye My Lover

-James Blunt

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your hand.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer and when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bare my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

Yeah, I felt the song fit. Even though most people hate his voice, I love it. Want to know a secret? I actually cried when I heard this song for the first time. I know, stupid, right? This is the first story I've ever completed all the way. So, I guess that's saying something.

I kind of dedicate this to one of my friends that went away. Moved away actually. She'll never read this and that's on purpose. I understood she never really got my writings. But that's ok. We're not as close anymore, anyways.

As anyone can tell, the year '06 didn't like me. The end of '05 didn't either. I moved right in the middle of the best year of my life. I had three best friends. I've kind of been separated from all of them. Two moved. Then, I moved. It's been hard to leave and go to some huge place you knew nothing about. My first day of school, I almost shit my pants. Lol. Scary as Hell.

Anyways, this isn't about me, this is about my friends. We all had our little nicknames and stuff.

Shadow. He was 'supposedly' the dark, scary, and 'I'll hide my feelings in' kind of guy.

Alexa. The girl who walks around thinking she can solve the world's problems. She's known to getting into things she may not want to.

Kat. The person you go to when you have a problem. She usually helps you with anything.

Me. Scared, shy, and makes thinking by themselves a hobby (That, and writing and stuff. Known to doodle too. lol). Went out with Shadow for a little while (He moved away). Was best friends with Alexa until she went a little too far into someone's business.

Oh! I forgot someone. She was kind of left out too.

Dim. She's shy, afraid to do little minor things that might make her look stupid, and everyone can be her friend if they want to.

Well, if I learned anything these past couple years is that friends come and go. And people are going to put you down. But it's those faults that can make you stronger, or something. Friends go, they leave, and in some cases they die. And trust me, it hurts. I mean, it really really hurts. Not on the outside, but the inside. It will hurt for a little while and it might still sting after that, but if our whole world revolves around that one time you hurt so bad, then what's the point in living? You have to forget about those things and move one. Live life, because some people wait until their on their death bed to say that they don't want to die. They want to live. Time, life, and death wait for no man. God (Or whoever you believe in) only gave you one life.

I know a lot of people don't really support my dad, but if there's any piece of advice he's given me this year is that we can't go along hating and blaming other people. We need to live life to the fullest and except the bad times with the good. Because Once it's gone, it's gone.

So, Thank you to the people who actually went out of their way and put time into reading this. It's semi based off real events, but hey. Everybody puts a little of themselves into their work.

-Good-Bye
