She will be also be deeply missed by many friends who she loved like family. Goodbye for now. Thank you for the music, when someone way down here loses someone dear. When I think of you I'll know you're near. What you have what you lost. Enchained by my own sorrow. No more shoulder to cry on, my best friend. You and I cry. Is your soul out there, can you hear my prayer, silence ever after. Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes, in these rooms children would play, now there's only emptiness. One of us is crying, one of us is lonely, does it show you again how much I'll miss you. I'll skip my pride when I think of you. Where are the happy days, the love you gave me, nothing else can save me. When your gone how can I carry on. I wish I understood, somewhere in the clouds there's you. Nothing!
can capture a heart like a melody, can, does it mean anything to you. Your smile and the sound of your voice. Though it's hurting me now, It's history. It's time to fly, to say goodbye, and Thank You for the music.
