How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.

I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

I don't know where this road
Is going to lead
All I know is where we've been
And what we've been through.

If we get to see tomorrow
I hope it's worth all the wait
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

    Together we laugh, we cry. We share our thoughts. And before we know it one of us will be gone. Then all we have are the memories that we shared with each other. We think about all the good things and leave the bad ones behind.

    I think it means its hard to let go of the good memories and moments that happened in the past. Yu always look back to the past or yesterday's memories to see wat yu cud hav changed or dne different. Its the same... Cuz at some point in life yu hav to let go and say goodbye to yur past. Good or bad.
