How do I Bid Goodbye?

Goodbye, is a painful word to say
But I know it is the better way
'Coz by now, we have to correct what's wrong
Search for true happiness where we could belong.

Goodbye, is a sad thing to do
But I know it's good for me and you
'Coz by now, we have to spread our wings
Fly so high, reach for our dreams.

Goodbye, the last word I wanna say
But I know this could be better
'Coz by now, it's time for us to move on
Do things that will make us better person.

Goodbye, I hope my love you'll understand
I'm dong this while we are young
While there are lot of things that could be done
Grab the chance to explore and have so much fun.

Goodbye, I ,hope we could still be friends
If not at least as best friend
And maybe someday you'll find the right man
The right man who'll love you better.

But when it's really destiny's will
And there's still the love that both of us felt
That fate really bring us together
I will then fold my wings and hold you forever.

How do I bid Goodbye?
