Farewell

Album: Talk That Talk (2011)
  • Wherever you're going
    I wanna go
    Wherever you're heading
    Can you let me know
    I don't mind catching up
    I'm on my way
    Just can't take the thought of you miles away

    And I know you're going somewhere to make a better life
    I hope that you find it on the first try
    And even though it kills me
    That you have to go
    I know it'll be sadder
    If you never hit the road

    So farewell
    Somebody is gonna miss you
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
    That somebody is me

    I will write to tell you what's going on
    But you won't miss nothing but the same old song
    If you don't mind catching up
    I'll spend the day telling you stories about a land far away
    But I know

    And I know you're going somewhere to make a better life
    I hope that you find it on the first try
    And even though it kills me
    That you have to go
    I know it'll be sadder
    If you never hit the road

    So farewell
    Somebody is gonna miss you
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna miss you
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
    That somebody is me

    And I'm gon' try to hold it all in
    Try to hold back my tears
    So it don't make you stay here, yeah
    I'mma try to be a big girl now
    'Cause I don't wanna be
    The reason you don't leave

    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna miss you
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna miss you
    Farewell
    Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
    That somebody is me Writer/s: ALEXANDER JUNIOR GRANT, ESTER DEAN
