This is for my peoples
Who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby
Your man or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye
No, no, no

Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers
Friends and cousins
This is for my peoples
Who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky
Cause we will never say bye

As a child there were them times
I didn't get it
But you kept me in line
I didn't know why
You didn't show up sometimes
On Sunday mornings and I missed you
But I'm glad we talked through

All them grown folk things
Separation brings
You never let me know it
You never let it show
Because you loved me and obviously
There's so much more left to say
If you were with me today
Face to face

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on I wish
I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've
Reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say

Bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye

You never got a chance to see
How good I've done
And you never got to
See me back at number one
I wish that you were here
To celebrate together
I wish that we could
Spend the holidays together

I remember when you used to
Tuck me in at night
With the teddy bear you gave me
That I held so tight
I thought you were so strong
You'd make it through whatever
It's so hard to accept the fact
You're gone forever

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on I wish
I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've
Reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say

Bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye

This is for my peoples
Who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby
Your man or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye

Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers
Friends and cousins
This is for my peoples
Who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky
Cause we will never say bye, bye.

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on I wish
I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've
Reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say

Bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye

    everyone lost something or someone and...
    actually every second and every minute in this world
    theres someone's gonna lost something or someone!!!
    relationships, family,love ,and everything could be lost...
    in just a second!!!
    so we need to enjoy while they still with our side!!!
    and dont cry when we lost them!!

    just so, remember...
    -Nothing or No one in this world is permanent!!!
    bye!!!

    A song that from the very young mind to know how painful when someone leaves you to the point of no return and then growing older to understand what life brings in the reality. That god, our creator will always have a plan for us that no matter how we hold it, we never know when is the time he will going to get it back.

    The first time i heard this song, i remembered my late best cousin ever. She died last march 10, 2011 and that's still fresh to me. I saw her dying, saying i was her very best friend, holding the rosary i gave which made her strong for a while, it was so sad to see how she cried and cried enduring the pain for herself and you couldn't do anything to appease her and you have to do is to make a straight face telling her you can make it, you'll be fine but in the back of your mind you realized it was very helpless, much harder to lose someone you know you will never have again. Edelle, best, you're one of the best things that ever happened to me, it may be too late to say it now but i know you feel my sincerity. I promise to fulfill your dreams, you will have children through me too. Nanay and tatay is fine. They miss you so much. I always remember how tatay used to look at me as if i was you when he was at our house, i told you that b4, right? He used to kiss me the way he kissed you and then pay me hundred peso bill for my kisses service. We are like twin and that's i miss now, i lost you physically. I miss you so. I love you, elle. Extend my regards to lolo and lola and uncle john, ok? Thank you.
