A day as dark as a starless night
A night as bright as day
A smile colder than ice
A word you cannot say

I can see it in your eyes today
It is the last goodbye
Oh how much I want to stay
To never let you die

But the end has come
The battle has been won
The chapter done
Within danger, within fun

The knife at the end is never sharp
The end is never quick
Sometimes it seems so hard
Sometimes you scream and kick

But you know it’s time to let go
Time to let them lie
You’ve watched them live and watched them grow
And now you say goodbye
