Never Say Goodbye
 
I don't want to lose you girl
I try to do my best
To keep you in my arms
But it's hard
Oh,so hard
'cause I can't see you everyday

The distance between us
It's killing me
I opened my heart for you
But the distance,the distance
Oh,it's killing me

I fear the word goodbye
'cause it shattered my heart before
And I don't want to go through
All the pain again

We promised,
eternal love to each other
But the distance
Oh,the distance
It's killing that promise
It's killing me

My love for you is strong
Like the steel that holds the bridge
But my heart is weak
So don't break it please

Just the thought of loosin' you…

Oh,sometimes I drift in the space
With thoughts that make my heart bleed
Over and over again
So don't, please don't
Don't ever say goodbye to me

Thank you for reading :) comment!

Ditch the "thee." It's totally out of place. If it was a period piece then maybe, but it's clearly not.
Is this relative to the lyric? This needs reworked or left out -
"Like the satan fears that you
Realize that He exists"

You've got form, but the overly melodramatic content doesn't have much to dig into to make it memorable. Give it some zest and fire like you're really missing the person.

I'd loose the "Oh's". Granted, even I throw them in here and there when reading at a poetry slam or singing, but it's a moment thing. Including them in writing is a buzz kill.

You've got a bit of a nice rhythm peeping out here and there, but it derails. For example, the first verse is going along quite nicely, until the last line where you almost break your tongue trying to read. Try reading it all out loud, several times, and you'll probably see it yourself. It should have flow.
By the way, if you drop the "Oh" in the second last line of the first verse you lose the rhythm, but me, I'd change it to "So damn hard". A clenched fist in the table and not just a lot of sighing at the window sill.

Not my favorite type of lyrics at any time of the day. But I'd say that if you sort out the rhythm, put it to some good music (Backstreet boys is NOT the way to go) and send it to her, it'll sit fairly well.

You're welcome. It has a nice flow to it now to me.
I disagree about the oh's. Sometimes I include them when I write because they add a visual note where there wouldn't be one in the reading or sometimes if it's a lead in to a line in one of my more hokey lyrics. Some writers use them and some don't. Some pieces need them in writing and some can be inserted at will when being sung. It's up to you.
Anyways, glad to help out.
