'What is Goodbye?

I pen a phrase I write a tune
I find a stage and I sing for you
I question my motives
I question my heart
I question the forces unseen
That brought us together and pulled us apart

The moon is but a touch of white
Holding but a cup of light
She's covered in darkness now
We call it new
I find myself wishing
Sometimes my face was invisible too

What is goodbye babe?
A word to fill the space?
High above the reach of time
A goodbye has no place

I could be spending too much time
Searching for an honest line
I pray it comes easy
Often it won't
The truth is I love you
Even if time makes you think that I don't

What is goodbye babe?
A sad and lonely sound?
High above the reach of time
A goodbye can't be found

Once we stood as mountains, donning crowns of snow
Our faces worn and weathered, our speech was soft and low
Our roots cannot be severed, our ties cannot be cut
And I promise you, our book cannot be shut

What is goodbye babe?
A common spell we cast?
High above the reach of time
A goodbye cannot last
