Walkin' Past you through the hall
Stoppin' by to give you a call
We've been through it all

Talkin' to you, Sayin' our goodbyes
Can't believe that we are leavin'
This is the end for us all

[Chorus]
And how do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And why does this have to be so hard
Yea Yea ohh
How do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And do I just say goodbye
Should I laugh or cry

Everything has just disappeared
I can't deal with it
I barely got to say goodbye

Best friends forever
That's what we used to say
Now everything is flying away

And how do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And why does it have to be so hard
Yea Yea Ohh (Why does it have to be)
How do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And do I just say goodbye
Should I laugh or cry

I just wish that everything was the same(the Same)
Now all our memories are floating away
Yea Yea Ohh

And how do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And why does this have to be so hard
(So Hard)
And how do we say our goodbyes
Do we laugh or cry
And do I just say goodbye
Should I laugh or cry

    I myself am using it for a graduation song only because i am graduating.
    But i actually wrote her on myspace and she said that it was about her and her bestfriend and she was moving and having to say goodbye to her bestfriend. its sad but its a very good song.

    I honostly took this song as like graduation. I took it like that because it says how do we say our goodbyes do we laugh or cry, and at the begining it says walkin through the halls stoppin by to give you a call Talkin to you sayin our goodbyes can't believe We're leavin. it also says Best Friends forever That's what we used to say It can kind of be like when your were in elementary everybody used to say "Best Friends Forever. I don't if it's cause I'm Graduating that that's why I interperate it that way, but that's how I see the meaning.

    I went to her concert. She said it's NOT about graduation. She wrote it in 8th grade when her & her best friend were going to go to different schools the next year. She is so nice!
