Goodbye Anna

My dear sweet Anna

I have go

I don’t want you beside me

Across this open road

 

It’s not the path I wanted

But it’s the one I chose

I hope you can understand

But I guess I‘ll never know

 

So goodbye sweet Anna

Goodbye my dear

By the time you’ve read this

I’ll be far from here

 

I know you won’t shed a tear

Not where anyone can see

I won’t say that this hurts

But you’ve always been stronger than me

 

I know that this isn’t right

But it’s the best that I can do

Maybe one day I will change

But it’s not something I can do for you

 

So goodbye sweet Anna

Goodbye my dear

By the time you’ve read this

I’ll be far from here

 

Hello dear Anna

It’s been so long

I hope this letter finds you well

I hear your kids grew up strong

 

You know the road has thought me

How in your darkest night

When you’re blind to everything

That stars can shine twice as bright

 

The road has thought me oh so much

So many things I never knew

Like out of all the things I thought I’d miss

None of them measure up to you

 

Yes I often thought about you

And how I left you then

You know it always felt so wrong

But you know I’d do it again

 

So goodbye sweet Anna

Goodbye again

I can’t promise you’ll hear from me

But I’ll always be your friend

 

Now goodbye sweet Anna

Goodbye my dear

You know the only way I stay alive

Is knowing I can find you here
