Rhyming and Lyrics – A Thousand Real Goodbyes

A Thousand Real Goodbyes by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

No one else can stay here
There’ll be no more friends
I hate being this lonely
But I’m toeing my wit’s end

It’s not just paranoia
That got me where I am
It’s a thousand fake I love yous
That just stopped where they began

It’s a thousand fake I love yous
A thousand real goodbyes
It’s a thousand sighs of apathy
A thousand tears I cried
It’s a thousand words you said to me
That made a thousand lies
It’s a thousand fake I love yous
And a thousand real goodbyes

There’ll be no more light here
To guide you where to go
There’s no more open door for you
To shield you from the cold

And there’ll be no more heartache
From me this time around
‘Cause my heads done being in the clouds
My feet are on the ground

It’s a thousand fake I love yous
A thousand real goodbyes
It’s a thousand sighs of apathy
A thousand tears I cried
It’s a thousand words you said to me
That made the thousand lies
It’s a thousand fake I love yous
And my final real goodbye

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
