  • Come on!

    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again

    It was a month since he passed, maybe less
    And no one knew what to do, we were such a mess
    We were texting, we were calling, we were checking in
    We said we ought to play a show in honor of our friend
    Well now that show's finally here, it's tonight
    Supposed to go to the bowl, get on stage, dim the lights
    With our friends and our family, in his name, celebrate
    There's no way that I'll be ready to get back up on that stage
    Can't remember if I've cancelled any show
    But I think about what I'm supposed to do and I don't know
    'Cause I think about not doing it the same way as before
    And it makes me wanna puke my fucking guts out on the floor
    We rehearsed it for a month, I'm not worried about the set
    I get tackled by the grief at times that I would least expect
    I know what I should be doing when I'm singing but instead
    We'll be playing through a song and I'd remember in my head

    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again

    What they saying, I'm not raw?
    What the fuck you take me for?
    All the sudden you hear what I've said a hundred ways before?
    I been pushed, I been trapped
    Drug myself through hell and back and
    Fallen flat and had the balls to start it all again from scratch
    How do you feel, how you doing, how'd the show go?
    Am I insane to say the truth is that I don't know
    My body aches heads spinning this is all wrong
    I almost lost it in middle of a couple songs
    And everybody that I talk to is like, "wow
    Must be really hard to figure out what to do now"
    Well thank you genius, you think it'll be a challenge
    Only my life's work hanging in the fucking balance
    And all I wanted was to get a little bit of closure
    And every step I took I looked and wasn't any closer
    'Cause sometimes when you say goodbye, yeah you say it
    Over and over and over and over

    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Sometimes, sometimes you don't say goodbye once
    You say goodbye over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again

    Over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again
    Over and over and over again Writer/s: Michael Kenji Shinoda
