Of all the things I believed in
I just want to get it over with
Tears from behind my eyes
But I do not cry
Counting the days passed me by

I've been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I'm hearing are starting to get old
Feels like I'm starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend and I say

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

I used to get lost in your eyes
And it seems like I can't live a day without you
Closing my eyes and you chase my thoughts away
To a place where I am blinded by the light but it's not right

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

Ohhh yeah
It hurts to want everything & nothing at the same time
I want what's yours and I want what's mine
I want you but I'm not giving in this time

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

When the stars fall and I lie awake
You're my shooting star

    The most perfect song i wanna go and sing to my one and only guy when i leave. Im going home to japan. Staying in my homeland for good. Imma go leave philippines with my baby and im leaving her father here. You'll be my first and last man babyjosh. I'll take care of our baby no matter what. You need to fix your life with your real family. With youre son, and maybe fix your relationship with your ex wife. I love you so much baby that's why i need to let go. I'll take care of your greatest and sweetest gift. Thanks for all the sweet memories babyjosh. I love you so much. Sweet goodbye.

    i sang it upon seeing it in here.suddenly i felt tears in my eyes.it's because,it's exactly what i feel right now.i want to say goodbye.he left me but i was persistent oh him hoping we could get back again.it has been a month and nothing's happen.i feel like i've done my part.i don't want to wait for nothing.but i am afraid that maybe when i'll stop my efforts it will be the time he's coming back.i'm really torn and confused.
