And what if I never kiss your lips again
Or feel the touch of your sweet embrace
How would I ever go on
Without you there's no place to belong
Well someday love is gonna lead you back to me
But 'til it does I'll have an empty heart
So I'll just have to believe
Somewhere out there you thinking of me

Until the day I'll let you go
Until we say our next hello
It's not goodbye
'Til I see you again
I'll be right here rememberin' when
And if time is on our side
There will be no tears to cry
On down the road
There is one thing I can't deny
It's not goodbye
You'd think I'd be strong enough to make it through
And rise above when the rain falls down
But it's so hard to be strong
When you've been missin' somebody so long

It's just a matter of time I'm sure
But time takes time and I can't hold on
So won't you try as hard as you can
To put my broken heart together again

    I was involved in a two girls' relationship, but at the end, i had to let one go, as we could not live a life like that for so long. Each of them loved me so much that even after realizing that i was cheating them, they were ready to forgive me and continuing in an affair with me, only if i chose her(each wanting to remain). It happened that when i made the decision, the other who had to break-off sent me this song as a fare well memory, and whenever i listen to the song, i feel like it is her talking to me. The girlfriend who remained knows how sad i become whenever i hear this song, so she doesn't like me listening to the song much often, but i cant refrain my self from the sorrowful voice of my beloved through laura.

    When you broke up with someone,most of the time you know you will see her again.. But things are never gonna be the same.. She will look you like looking a stranger.. Shake your hand like a friend.. Love is never be there again.. But it's not goodbye..
