soatway You told my story of 2016. Lost my Mom, sister, a dear friend and beloved pet. I'm so ready. Say goodbye to the year. This song showed up just in time for me. Would love to hear an anthem version -- drums, bagpipes, full gospel choir, full orchestra!

lyrics

Say Goodbye to the Year
Words and music by Peter Katz and Kyler England

No heartbeat, she said
I don’t feel it anymore
And just like that
The closing of the door

That voice in my head
I don’t hear it anymore
It’s so silent instead
So still before the storm

It’s been broken blur since that day
I cry out agains this fate
I'm ready now to walk away
I’m ready, I’m ready

Say goodbye to the year
Say goodbye to the year
To every hope and every fear
Cause I'm still standing here
Say goodbye to the year
Say goodbye to the year

I still feel my knees
As they crashed to the floor
With the part of me that tried so hard
But couldn’t fix it anymore

But I’m holding up my finger now
To all the days that let me down
And if I’m angry, I’m allowed
I’m ready, so ready to

Say goodbye to the year
Say goodbye to the year
To every hope and every fear
Cause I'm still standing here
Say goodbye to the year
Say goodbye to the year

It came and it went
So I'’m free to forget it
I’m free to let it die

At least I found my friends
G*d I needed them
I owe them my life

Say goodbye to the year
Say goodbye to the year
To every hope and every fear
Cause I'm still standing here
Say goodbye to the year
Every hope and every fear
Every day of fallen tears
Cause I'm still standing here
Say goodbye to the year
