It may seem like the end of the world whenever I go,
And it may be hard for such a young girl, but believe me I know
That Iâ€™m going to where I belong,
And Iâ€™m leaving you with this song.
I am sure that someday youâ€™ll be happy,
And that youâ€™ll be strong.
Though it may seem as if life is unkind when I go away,
Iâ€™ll still be right there on your mind throughout every day.
If it seems that life is unfair
Or that maybe God doesnâ€™t care,
If you need me just call out my name,
And I will be there.
If thereâ€™s bad dreams that come in the night and make you afraid,
Remember even though Iâ€™m out of sight, a part of me stayed.
Just as long as Iâ€™m there in your heart,
There is no way that weâ€™ll ever part,
And youâ€™ll always feel the same love
That youâ€™ve known from the start.
Donâ€™t let anybody tell you that you canâ€™t cry
Whenever you come to say goodbye.
Thereâ€™s no way they can understand
Your feelings, my friend.
Donâ€™t let anybody tell you that you shouldnâ€™t go,
Because thereâ€™s no way that they could know
That youâ€™ll be strong enough to stand
On your own at the end.
