About Bye Bye

"Bye Bye" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey, taken from her eleventh studio album, E=MC² (2008). It was written by Carey, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen and Johntá Austin, and produced by the former three. It was released as the album's second single on April 15, 2008. The song is influenced by pop and R&B music genres, and features a piano and keyboard-driven melody. Lyrically, the song is a dialogue in between Carey and her deceased father throughout the verses, and a universal salute to departed loved ones on the chorus. The song received generally positive reviews, with many critics considering it a highlight from the album. Though expected by critics to have surely become Carey's 19th chart-topping single in the United States, following the success of "Touch My Body", the track only managed to reach a peak position of number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the other countries the song achieved relatively weak charting, peaking within the top ten in New Zealand, and the top-fifty in Canada, Ireland, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.

This is for my people's who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man or your lady
Put you hand way up high
You will never say bye
(No no no)
Momma's, daddy's, sister's, brother's
Friends, and cousins
This is for my people's who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head up to the sky
'Cause we will never say bye

As a child, there were them times
I didn't get it, but you kept me in line
I didn't know why
You didn't show up sometimes
On Sunday mornings
And I missed you, but what we talked through
All them grown folk things, separation brings
You never let me know it, you never let it show
Because you loved me enormously
And so much more then to say
If you were with me today
Face to face

I never knew I can hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
I wish I can talk to you for a while
Wish you but try not to cry
As time goes bye

And I'm sure you reached a better place
And still I'd give
The world to see your face
Me right here, next to you
But it's like your gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say
Bye, bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye, bye-bye

And you never got a chance to see
How good I've done
And you never got to see me
Back at number one
I wish that you was here to celebrate together
I wish that we can spend the holidays together
I remember when you use to tuck me in at night
Or the teddy bear you give me I held so tight
I thought you were so strong
You make it through whatever
It's so hard to accept the fact you gone forever

I never knew I can hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like this
I wish I can talk to you for a while
I miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And I'm sure you reached a better place
And I'd still give
The world is in your face
Me right here, next to you
But it's like your gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say
Bye, bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye, bye-bye

This is for my people's who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man or your lady
Put you hand way up high
You will never say bye
(No no no)
Momma's, daddy's, sister's, brother's
Friends, and cousins
This is for my people's who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head up to the sky
'Cause we will never say bye

I never knew I can hurt like this
(I never knew it) and everyday (everyday I wish that I)
Life goes on like this (I wish, I wish)
I wish I can talk to you for a while (I wish)
I miss you but I try not to cry (I wish)
As time goes by (As time goes bye)

And I'm sure you reached a better place
And still I'd give
The world to see your face
Me right here, next to you
But it's like your gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say
Bye, bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye
Bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye, bye-bye

'Cause this is for my peoples that
Just lost somebody (bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye)
This is for everybody (bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye)
Just lift your head to the sky (bye-bye bye-bye bye-bye)
'Cause we will never say bye-bye
