Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
And all the flowers are everywhere
Pretty girls are everywhere
"Think of me and I'll be there."

Goodbye, papa, please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
"I don't know all these words
I have bought three turds
With my BB-gun I would kill birds"

We had joy, we had fun,
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hill that we reached
Were just starfish on the beach

Goodbye, michelle, my little one
"I was the apple of the shiny sun.
And I have loved you every week
All my tears are salty
I think that now I will start to leave"

We had joy, we had fun,
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

We had joy, we had fun,
We had seasons in the sun
But the hill on the beach
Were just starfish on the beach.

We had joy, we had fun,
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

I've had joy, we had fun,
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars that we reached
Were just starfish on the beach.

    I start crying cause i think its about somone killing themselves, but telling the people that matter that its not their fault. And saying its hard to let go. "goodbye my friend, its hard to die. " :/ i love this song though.

    For me this song is a goobye song , and whta this author really loves the changes in the seasons of the year . He expresses his felings with the song and has wonderful memories. Maybe he regrets he did not behave better , because he sayas he was the black sheep.

    I think kurt once again made the lyrics according to his childhood "i was the black sheep of the family, with my bb-gun i would kill birds" he makes the lyrics fit together as a puzzle. Brilliant.
