Never Say Goodbye

I know it is either early or late for Music Monday, but I'm bluer than blue over some news I've received about a friend and wanted to post this Bon Jovi song as a tribute. While it is not my place to share any details, I have been in tears all morning about her imminent departure. I have never been good at goodbyes, but sometimes there is nothing you can do or say, it's just the way it is.

As I sit in this smoky room
The night about to end
I pass my time with strangers
But this bottle's my only friend

Remember when we used to park
On Butler Street out in the dark
Remember when we lost the keys
And you lost more than that in my backseat

Remember when we used to talk
About busting out - we'd break their hearts
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

Remember days of skipping school
Racing cars and being cool
With a six pack and the radio
We didn't need no place to go

Remember at the prom that night
You and me we had a fight
But the band they played our favorite song
And I held you in my arms so strong

We danced so close
We danced so slow
And I swore Id never let you go
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

I guess you'd say we used to talk
About busting out
Wed break their hearts
Together - forever

I used this song back in college to write an essay that I sure wish I could find right now. Unfortunately, back in the day, we had typewriters and cave drawings rather than computers, so I will have to sort through my boxes in the basement for a hard copy.
