You might not always be able to sum up what you want to say yourself - it's a good thing there are people paid to do it, and put it to wonderful music to spark emotion: joy, sorrow, fun, and everything in-between. Here's a selection of radio friendly hits that have some lovely lyrics in that could help you get across a goodbye with meaning.

Phil Collins - On My Way

Tell everybody I'm on my way
New friends and new places to see
With blue skies ahead yes
I'm on my way
And there's nowhere else
That I'd rather be

Tell everybody I'm on my way
And I'm loving every step I take
With the sun beating down yes
I'm on my way
And I can't keep this smile off my face

Take That - Never Forget

We've come so far and we've reached so high
And we've looked each day and night in the eye
And we're still so young and we hope for more
But remember this
We're not invincible, we're not invincible
No
We're only people, we're only people
Hey we're not invincible, we're not invincible
So again I'll tell you

Never forget where you've come here from
Never pretend that it's all real
Someday soon this will be someone else's dream

Fun. - We Are Young

Tonight, we are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

Nickelback - Photograph

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

The Sound of Music - So Long, Farewell

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye!

Wicked (Idina Menzel) - For Good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you

You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...
