    i get it now
    "bye and bye" has come
    the time has come
    and the rhyme has come
    to save me from the silence
    and self-inflicted violence...

    he slept all the time
    and i never understood
    how sleeping all day
    could do you any good

    then he'd get a call
    announcing the death of one of his friends
    he would turn rigid
    and go back to sleep again

    i never understood
    but now i understand
    because too many people
    have let go of my hand

    i miss the smiles
    and the hugs and the laps
    that have gone with natural causes
    and unnatural heart attacks

    too many things are changing
    i'm trying to cope
    but it seems to me
    that there is no hope

    i loved them and they left me
    to go to a better place
    but i'm stuck here with tears
    running down my face

    i never understood
    and they said i would bye and bye
    i never thought
    "bye and bye" would make me cry

    but now i understand
    why he sleeps his day away
    if i were him
    i'd sleep until my dying day

    all the people i love
    are fading and leaving me
    if life is all about suffering
    i wish life would leave me be...

    the leaving is only
    one part of the life
    one that can
