Close your eyes,
And just hear me sing,
One last long goodbye,
One last song before you spread your wings.

There's so much left to say,
And before this moment slips away

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I loved you so

The cold night calls,
And the tears fall like rain,
It's so hard letting go,
Of the one thing I'll never replace

And soon you will be gone,
But these words, they will live on

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life my friend

All that I am,
You let me be,
I will remember you,
For all that you've done,
And given to me

Love will remain,
This I can see,
Now and forever more
Because of you,
Now I believe
I believe

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I loved you so

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life
A wonderful life
What a wonderful life
What a wonderful life

And with one last embrace
As the tears fall like rain you're gone
And with one last goodbye,
As you fade out tonight, you're gone.

    This song is mine and my beautiful girlfriends' song. It has such a deep meaning, because i am regretful to the point of feeling torn between scylla and charybdis if i were to lose her, she is my world and makes me who i am, i love her so much, myles' voice and marks' guitar work really hammers the point home that she is everything to me. I love her to death.

    Actually,i can't explain it more specific by the words,this song is when this people imagine if he get a wonderful late,but in reality,his life is very worst,he wish that someone will be by him side,for he really love that girl,but they can't together,he count the second that still remain,and he never be happy,until this second,because he so far away from lonely,especially for her.

    My wife and i are separating after 6 years of marriage. We don't hate each other, we've just fallen out of love. She showed me so much, and helped make me all i am . I think i am probably holding her back and she needs to spread her wings. God i'm going to miss her

    I'm leaving home this year after i graduate from high school. My college is a state away from the only place i have ever considered home, and from all of the people i love most. This will be my first time truly leaving everyone behind, and the impending deadline is making me treasure each moment i have left with my friends. I've bought all of alter bridge's albums, and i got my mother started on their music. She played this song after my 18th birthday, and wished me luck with whatever i set out to do in my life. She is the person i'll miss most, and this song will always carry me back to my mom, no matter where i am.
