Wish I could be the one
The one who could give you love
The kind of love you really need
Wish I could say to you
That I'll always stay with you
But baby that's not true
You need someone
Willing to give their heart and soul to you
Promise you forever,
Baby that's something I can't do,
Oh I could say that I'll be all you need
But that would be a lie
I know I'd only hurt you
I know I'd only make you cry
I'm not the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye...

I hope someday you can
Find some way to understand
I'm only doing this for you
I don't really wanna go
But deep in my heart I know
This is the kindest thing to do
You'll find someone
Who'll be the one that I could never be
Who'll give you something better
Than the love you'll find with me
Or I could say that I'll be all you need
But that would be a crime
I know I'd only hurt you
I know I'd only make you cry
I'm not the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye...

Leaving someone, when you love someone
Is the hardest thing to do
When you love someone as much as I love you

Oh I don't wanna leave you
Baby it tears me up inside
I'll never be the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye...

Baby, it'll never ganna work out
I love you, goodbye...

    loving someone with all your heart doesnt mean that you'll end up together. it's really hard to say goodbye to someone you truly love, but if it's the only way to let that person feel that he's important to you then you woud be willing to let go.afterall, letting go is another way of saying you'll always love that person.:)

    mahal kita pa. minahal kita ng sobra. pero siguro hanggang dun nalang ako.. lahat na ginawa ko para maging masaya ang pagsasama natin. pero parang laging may kulang... gusto ko punan lahat ng kulang na yun pero di ko na kaya... sobrang nasasaktan ako kapag binabalewala mo ako. kapag nsakanila atensiyon mo at wala sakin. alam ko naman number 2 lang ako sau. number 1 ang pamilyamo. minahal kita ng sobra alam mo yan. pero sorry kung susuko na ako. hindi na ako masaya eh... sabi nga nila kahit mali kung dun ka masaya dun ka diba!! sana dumating time na marealize mo na hindi lang ako tautauhan lang. asawa mo ako. siguro ito na yung tym na maging masaya naman ako sa piling ng iba. na mas mamahalin at bibigyan ako ng atensyion... I love u goodbye PA!

    it really hard to say goodbye to a person that you really love but if its the only way to make her/him happy we have to set free...though it hurts but we have to accept the reality in love...

    I love you goodbye means paalam na.. Kahit masakit kailangan mo siyang palayain. Ang tunay na nagmamahal ay hindi sakim ni hindi marunong magtanim ng galit. Kung di na talaga kayo magkasund ano pa ba dapat gawin? So dapat palayain na ang bawat isa.. Habang di pa masyadong masakit
