Life Will Go On lyrics

there's a word I've hated all my life
unanticipated tears
can hurt so much

my friend
it's so sad to see you at love's end
I've been through the pain myself
It's really wrong to play it strong

Go on and cry
!(r)til you run dry it's alright
go on and scream
at broken dreams it's alright
let sorrow have it`s day
and when it's done life will go on

In time
Thoughts of !might have been!+/-
Will leave your mind
And sweet forgetfulness
Will come
Don`t worry now just when or how

But the mystery to me
Is the life I've lived before
And the place for me isn't history
It's with you forever more
