I Promise It's Not Goodbye

Album: not released on an album (2009)
  • Mommy, please don't cry
    I'm as safe as I can be
    I know you miss me,
    But I've finally been set free
    And if you find that you need me
    I will be waiting here
    To help you get through
    And take away your fear
    I love you so much mom
    But it's time for me to fly
    I will see you every night
    And I swear it's not goodbye
    I promise it's not goodbye

    Now, Bubba, please don't cry
    I'm still your best friend
    We will always be together
    There will never be an end
    I hope you don't forget
    The games we loved to play
    So keep me in your heart, yeah
    And forever I will stay
    I love you so much brother
    But it's time for me to fly
    I will see you every night
    And I swear it's not goodbye
    I promise it's not goodbye

    Now Daddy, please don't cry
    I'm still here everyday
    It may not be the same
    But beside you I will lay
    When you think of me tonight
    Hold me tight in your mind
    And if you ever again need me
    I won't be hard to find
    I love you so much daddy
    But it's time for me to fly
    I will see you every night
    And I swear it's not goodbye
    I promise it's not goodbye
