I held you tight

Tried not to cry

Please don't leave my sight

Don't say goodbye


"Be brave" you said

I said "I'll try"

But you might end up dead

Don't say goodbye


I hugged your waist

And wondered why

Looked at your face

Don't say goodbye


In the parking lot

you let out a sigh

You were in a tough spot

And you said goodbye
