notes:
hello, my friend
just stopped in to see your face again
our trials have finally reached their end
and i just needed one smile
to carry me through the next

all i ever wanted 
was to grasp a strand of light
snatch a figment of eternity
and wrap it up in fright

sprinkle on some tears
and a few clever jokes 
present this gift to you 
before i had to go
and say

goodbye, my friend

i was only ever trying to
earn the right to hurt you
one more time


you gave to me a majesty
wrapped in a messy honesty 
by ever-constant searching 
for ever-truer themes
 
in return i crafted a muddy mimicry
of ever-ever-changing  infinite creativity
 
our messy masterpiece
our march through wicked time
day by day 
we survived on another wretched rhyme

not much of a confession here
if you read between my lines
yes, i indulged the pain there
wasn't it divine

goodbye, my friend

i was only ever trying to 
earn the right to hurt you 
one more time


no difference to me 
between ugly and beauty
the dark is where the light begins

i now have other trials to endure
but i'll carry your smile
through the next end

goodbye, my friend

i was only ever trying to 
earn the right to hurt you
one last time

goodbye

goodbye

goodbye
