I Just Said Hello

All that's given can't be taken
All that's shared is now concealed
And though it seems love turns to sorrow
In time the truth will be revealed

Like a ship out on the ocean
You're drifting slowly out of sight
I feel the strength of this emotion
Pull me under with the tide
As You say Goodbye

And he said, "Goodbye, I'll miss you, I have to go"
And she said, "Goodbye, I love you, that's all I know"
No, I can't say goodbye, No, I can't say goodbye
I just said hello
There's an entrance and an exit
There will be crying at both doors
Tears of joy and tears of heartache
What did you think you came here for

You live and love and take your chances
As the universe unfolds
You've witnessed countless Grand Finales
Now the one that counts is yours
Just to say goodbye
--Repeat Chorus--

Sometimes life is cruel and empty
And it seems so hopeless to remain
When grief and sorrow dull your senses
You're just waiting for the rain

But through the clouds you'll feel the sunlight
You'll wear the water like a shield
As the ache becomes awareness
His love will fill your heart and heal
And you'll say goodbye
--Repeat Chorus--
