Patrick Fitzsimmons: Lyrics

Bittersweet Goodbye

Another year has left me smiling
One more ride on this big blue ball
But Father Time you are so frightening
The power you have on us all
The lines on my face do remind me
I cannot fight the hands of time
The years that forged them have defined me
So I will wear each one with pride

The years are flying by me
It’s sad to watch them die
But I’ll leave them all behind me
With a bittersweet goodbye
Goodbye


This world can bring me down to my knees
But try I must to move along
And not to take it all upon me
To carry what I can then carry on
I know as I learn so shall I burn
Its two steps up and one step back
I’ll toast to make the most of these days
For we will never get them back

The years are flying by me
It’s sad to watch them die
But I’ll leave them all behind me
With a bittersweet goodbye
Goodbye

Another year has left me smiling
One more ride on this big blue ball
