  • It changes everything you've been
    And all that's left to be
    Is empty, lonely, broken, hopin'
    I'm supposed to be strong
    I'm supposed to find a way to carry on

    I don't wanna feel better
    I don't wanna not remember
    I will always see your face
    In the shadows of this haunted place
    I will laugh
    I will cry
    Shake my fist at the sky
    But I will not say goodbye

    They keep saying time will heal
    But the pain just gets more real
    The sun comes up each day
    Finds me waiting, fading, hating, praying
    If I can keep on holding on
    Maybe I can keep my heart from knowing that you're gone

    Cause I don't wanna feel better
    I don't wanna not remember
    I will always see your face
    In the shadows of this haunted place
    I will laugh
    I will cry
    Shake my fist at the sky
    But I will not say goodbye

    I will curse
    I will pray
    I'll relive everyday
    I will shelter the blame
    I'll shout out your name

    I will laugh
    I will cry
    Shake my fist at the sky
    But I will not say
    Will not say goodbye
    I will not say goodbye
    Will not say oh Writer/s: CHUCK CANNON, LARI WHITE, VICKY LYNN MCGEHEE
