Farewell Lyrics

Play "Farewell"
on Amazon Music

Wherever you're going, I wanna go.
Wherever you're headed can you let me know?
I don't mind catching up. I'm on my way.
Just can't take the thought of you miles away.

And I know you're going somewhere to make a better life.
I hope that you...

    I heard it played at a memorial service,so I think it might be saying goodbye to someone who passed away.

    I think that the song is about two lovers who have to say goodbye. The guy moves away from her because of his new job or he wants to start a new/better life ( "And I know you’re going somewhere to make a better life").
    She knows that she cant go with him and that the relationship comes to an end even if they would try to have a long-distance relationship. ("I will write to tell you what's going on But you won't miss nothing but the same old song")
    The fact that they could be together if he stayed with her kills her but she loves him enough to let him go because she knows that this decision is the best for him. ("And even though it kills me That you have to go I know it'll be sadder If you never hit the road")
    she dont want to show him how hurt she is cause she dont want him to feel bad about his decision. ("I'mma try to be a big girl now Cause I don't wanna be the reason you don't leave").

    Rihanna wrote this song for her grandmother, Dolly, when she passed away.

    I think it's about someone close to her dying and she's saying that she's going to miss them and one day she will see them again
