I heard you laughing
In a crowd outside a restuarant we used to go to
I caught a glimpse that stopped me in my tracks
It took me back
You looked happy
With that little girl up on your shoulders, happy
I know where she got those crystal eyes of blue
Time's been sweet to you
As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
I thank God I didn't get what I thought that I deserved
Sometimes life leads you down a different road
When you're holding onto someone that you gotta let go
Someday you'll see the reason why
Sometimes, yeah sometimes
There's good in goodbye

I don't regret it
The time we had together, I won't forget it
But we both ended up where we belong
I guess goodbye made us strong
And yeah, I'm happy
I found somebody too, who makes me happy
And I knew one day I'd see you on the street
And it'd be bittersweet

But as bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
I thank God I didn't get what I thought that I deserved
Sometimes life leads you down a different road
When you're holding onto someone that you gotta let go
Someday you'll see the reason why
Yeah, Sometimes, yeah sometimes
There's good in goodbye

Yeah, yeah

As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
I thank God I didn't get what I thought that I deserved
Sometimes life leads you down a different road
When you're holding onto someone that you got to let go
Someday you'll see the reason why
Yeah, someday you'll see the reason why
There's good in goodbye
Yeah, yeah
There's good in goodbye

    It's about her and her ex running into each other. She realizes once she saw him happy and with a daughter, that saying goodbye to him was the best thing for both of them. God lead her down a different road, and seeing how their lives turned out, she's glad it turned out like it did even though it hurt when they broke up.

    Not wanting to let go even though that's the right thing to do ... For the sake of you and your heart.
