So It Goes ~ Goodbye For Now

So It Goes
You're feelin' bad, 
you need a friend
it seems that night won't end 
doubts an' fears fill the air 
midnight shadows everywhere . . . 
 
Don't be afraid 
the dawn is near 
to help you face your fear 
you're not alone 
we're really all the same 
caught in the game of "life" we're playin'
 
So it goes . . . if there's an answer 
then nobody knows 
love's always dancin' just ahead 
so hope is never dead somehow it grows
 
So it goes . . . the sea of mystery 
it ebbs an' flows 
a priceless gift of old 
oh the magic of a simple rose 
that's life an' so it goes . . .
 
When lonely times weigh on your mind 
and hopes are hard to find 
then use the good you've had before 
to help you face the world once more 
there's more in you than you can see 
if only you believe 
dream your dreams an' if they don't come true 
you'll still get along, that's life, 
just live it . . . 
 
So it goes . . . if there's an answer 
then nobody knows 
love's always dancin' just ahead 
so hope is never dead somehow it grows
 
So it goes . . . the sea of mystery 
it ebbs an' flows 
a priceless gift of old 
oh the magic of a simple rose 
that's life an' so it goes . . .
