“Bye Bye” – performed by Mariah Carey

This is for my peoples who just lost somebody,
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put you hand way up high
You will never say bye.
(no no no)
Momma’s, daddy’s, sister’s, brother’s,
Friends, and cousins.
This is for my people’s who lost their
Grandmothers
Lift your head up 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 inline
I didn’t know
Why you didn’t show up sometimes
On Sunday mornings
And I missed you, but what 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 so much more then to say
If you were with me today
Face to face.

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

And I’m sure you reached a better place
And still I’d give
The world to see your face
Me right here, next to you
But it’s like your 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-bye

And 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 was here to celebrate together
I wish that we can spend the holidays together
I remember when you use to tuck me in at night
Or the teddy bear you give me I held so tight
I thought you were so strong,
You make it through whatever
Its so hard to accept the fact you gone forever

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

And I’m sure you reached a better place
And I’d still give
The world is in your face
Me right here, next to you
But it’s like your 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-bye

This is for my peoples who just lost somebody,
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put you hand way up high
You will never say bye.
(No no no)
Momma’s, daddy’s, sister’s, brother’s,
Friends, and cousins.
This is for my people’s who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head up to the sky
‘Cause we will never say bye.

I never knew I can hurt like this
(I never knew it)
And everyday (everyday I wish that I)
Life goes on like this (I wish, I wish)
I wish I can talk to you for a while
(I wish)
I miss you but I try not to wish
(I wish)
As time goes by
(as time goes bye)

And I’m sure you reached a better place
I’d still give the world to see your face
And me right here, next to you
And the hardest thing to do
Is say
Bye-bye
Its hard to say
Bye bye bye bye bye
So come on
Somebody sing it with me
Wave your hands up high

‘Cause this is for my peoples that
Just lost somebody
This is for everybody
Just lift your head to the sky
‘Cause we will never say bye-bye

“Bye Bye” was performed by Mariah Carey. It is one of those pieces that do have very meaningful and emotional lines. As the song goes on and the lyrics unravel, it will take the listeners to an emotional place where they could remember their deceased loved ones even if those people have already passed a few years back.

As funeral quotes are made, this song is also dedicated to all of those people who have lost someone from a child, to a parent, and from an officemate to a neighbor. The lyrics are very dynamic as they talk about a grieving person’s feelings and his thoughts about the death of a loved one; from the time when he feels betrayed by the person who left him to the time when he is ready to move on with his life and learn something out of this emotional experience.

Even though it talks about saying goodbye and moving on, there are also sections of the song where the lines talk about regret. In reality, there will be times when you will ask the question “what if…?”. Saying goodbye may sound simple, but uttering it to the person you love the most will be the hardest thing to do especially when you know that he will never be coming back.
