Look we gotta talk
Dang I know
I know it's just
It's just...
Some things I gotta get of my chest alright...
Yeahhhh...
Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh, whoa...
Listen...

Baby come here and sit down, let's talk
I got a lot to say so I guess I'll start by
Saying that I love you,
But you know, this thing ain't been
No walk in the park for us
I swear it'll only take a minute
You'll understand when I finish, yeah
And I don't wanna see you cry
But I don't wanna be the one to tell you a lie so

[Hook:]
How do you let it go? When you,
You just don't know? What's on,
The other side of the door
When you're walking out, talk about it
Everything I tried to remember to say
Just went out my head
So I'ma do the best I can to get you to understand

[Chorus:]
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But I gotta make the first move
'Cause if I don't you gonna start hating me
Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
Girl it's not you, it's me
I kinda gotta figure out what I need (oh)
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But we know that we gotta go
Our separate ways
And I know it's hard but I gotta do it,
And it's killing me
Cause there's never a right time
Right time to say goodbye

Girl I know your heart is breaking
And a thousand times I
Found myself asking, "Why? Why?"
Why am I taking so long to say this?
But trust me, girl I never
Meant to crush your world
And I never
Thought I would see the day we grew apart
And I wanna know

[Hook:]
How do you let it go? When you,
You just don't know? What's on,
The other side of the door
When you're walking out, talk about it
Girl I hope you understand
What I'm tryna say.
We just can't go on
Pretending that we get along
Girl how you not gonna see it?

[Chorus:]
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But I gotta make the first move
'Cause if I don't you gonna start hating me
Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
Girl it's not you it's me.
I kinda gotta figure out what I need (oh)
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But we know that we gotta go
Our separate ways
And I know it's hard but I gotta do it,
And it's killing me
Cause there's never a right time
Right time to say goodbye

Listen to your heart
Girl you know,
We should be apart, baby I
I just can't do it
I, I just can't do it
Listen to your heart
Girl you know,
We should be apart, baby I
I just can't do it
And sometimes it makes me wanna cry
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh [4x]
Do you hear me crying?
Oh, oh, oh [4x]

[Chorus:]
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But I gotta make the first move
'Cause if I don't you gonna start hating me
Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
Girl it's not you it's me.
I kinda gotta figure out what I need (oh)
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But we know that we gotta go
Our separate ways
And I know it's hard but I gotta do it,
And it's killing me
Cause there's never a right time
Right time to say goodbye

[Chorus:]
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But I gotta make the first move
'Cause if I don't you gonna start hating me
Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
Girl it's not you it's me.
I kinda gotta figure out what I need (oh)
There's never a right time to say goodbye
But we know that we gotta go
Our separate ways
And I know it's hard but I gotta do it,
And it's killing me
Cause there's never a right time
Right time to say goodbye

    Sometimes saying goodbye, is just too hard. I wanted to break up with my boyfriend one time but couldn't find tha words to say it, and we talked about it and it ended in a mutual break. Sometimes I wish I never did but others I'm kind of glad. I think sometimes there is things we have to do and other things we arent forced to do, but always be ready for tha times that you have to be forced and know it will be tha right thing to do.

    Well. This song for me means a different way around. Why?!?! Guys do have a lot of lies in their lives. And this guy in the song hurts to say goodbye but he wants it also because for the mere fact that he doesn't love the girl anymore. A line that states "Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you". . And guys also loves this rotten dialogue such as "they are going to fix their lives for a reason" but that reason is to leave because they are already tired of loving us. Girls. It hurts A lot. But we cannot do anything but accept and move forward.

    This song just touches me so. Inside and out, I mean really. Somehow I just feel that when someone I love the most in the world, let's say a guy friend for example, tells me that he have someone who makes him smile brighter than I do, then i'll be glad that he said it to me with bravery. Because to be honest, there's nothing I'd care for in this world for that lover of mine other than his eternal happyness.

    He doen't know what he wants but he knows that he has to break it off so that they can both move on. It's hard to say goodbye to someone you really love and he doesn't know whether to just cool it off or leave it as if nothing is happening but now he feels that they are stuck in a place where its gonna end up in tears anyway.
