When you wake up
And find me gone tomorrow
Don't think I meant to hurt you
I just did what we knew I had to do
And all the time we knew
The time was never right for us
Time to leave this love behind
I could never leave you -- Baby
If I see you cry

Chorus
I'll say good bye for the two of us
Tonight while you sleep
I'll kiss you softly one last time
And say good-bye

Like I know we must
There's just no other way
And I couldn't bear to see your heart break
So Iґll wait till your asleep to say good-bye

Please realize
How hard it is to do this
I'm trying to make it through this
Say good-bye just as gently as I can
Please try and understand
This time's just not the time for us
We knew I couldn't stay
But that don't make it easier to leave you
So while I can find the strength

Chorus
Before your arms embrace me
Before your kisses take me
Before your eyes can make me stay

Chorus

Like I know we must
Iґll wait till you're asleep
To say good-bye for the two of us
Tonight while you sleep
Iґll kiss you softly one last time
And say good-bye
Like I know we must
There's just no other way
And I couldn't bear to see your heart break
So Iґll wait till your asleep to say good-bye

When you wake up
And find me gone tomorrow
Don't think I meant to hurt you

Good bye

    I've been searching this song for 15 years. I heard it when I was at Junior High and never heard it again ever since. I didn't know the title and the singer, all I remembered was these lyrics: When you wake up.
    And find me gone tomorrow.
    Don't think I meant to hurt you.

    Good bye

    Until today, I typed the part of the lyrics that I remember on google..and Gotcha! I'll say goodbye for the two of us - EXPOSE!

    It hurts like crazy to say good bye to someone so dear to you. If it works, it works, if it does't then let go and time to move on.

    It's so hard to say good bye, even when you know it's the only way for two people who love each other in the wrong moment and space...

    Two girls really love each other.
    But we all know, same sex relationship is a sin,
    So one of them decide to end everything.. But she can't find the courage to face her and say goodbye
    So she wait until she fell asleep.. Gently kiss her and went away,..

    Goodbye for all the good moments we shared.. Goodbye to everything we have.. Goodbye in all the pains we endured while we are still in that called "relationship" ...
