(Jennifer Hanson/Kim Patton)

It's like the most amazing sunset you've ever seen
There's never another quite the same
It just falls into some deep eternal sea
Like the end of a movie that makes you cry
You're sad when it's over but you're glad you had
That moment that moved you deep inside

Beautiful goodbye, baby goodbye
I enjoyed the ride, we really had us a time
It's a strange kind of high
A beautiful goodbye

An standin' here watchin' you drive away
We were so grown up about it all
But how will it look in the light of day?
I miss you already but don't turn around
It's funny how you know when it just won't work
And how letting go can echo the sweetest sound

Beautiful goodbye, baby goodbye
I enjoyed the ride, we really had us a time
It's a strange kind of high
A beautiful goodbye

So ironic, and so confusing
To do the right thing and be losing
I'm always stuck with choosing
And ain't that just like life?
Hey yeah, hey yeah

Beautiful goodbye, baby goodbye
I enjoyed the ride, we really had us a time
It's a strange kind of high
A beautiful goodbye

Goodbye, yeah
Na na nan na nan na, goodbye
----------------------
A kiss on my cheek,
As you pull away your hand.
I stand there dumbfounded;
Trying to understand.
You let me down easy.
I even saw a tear.
What I thought was happiness;
Just turned to my biggest fear.
The echo of your voice,
Still rings in my ear.
Repeating those words,
I never wanted to hear.
"Things have changed a lot since then, Sweetheart.
You can't have a relationship,
With only one doing their part.
We've both done some growing.
It's something we needed to do.
And I'm sorry when I say this,
But I'm not anymore, in love with you.
It breaks my heart," he said,
"to sit here and watch you cry.
But always remember me.
And this is my beautiful goodbye."
