It's a shame that it had to be this way
It's not enough to say I'm sorry
It's not enough to say I'm sorry

Maybe I'm to blame
Or maybe we're the same
But either way I can't breathe
Either way I can't breathe

All I had to say is goodbye
We're better off this way
We're better off this way

I'm alive but I'm losing all my drive
Cause everything we've been through
And everything about you
Seemed to be a lie
A guiltless twisted lie
It made me learn to hate you
Or hate myself for letting it pass by

All I had to say is goodbye
We're better off this way
We're better off this way
All I had to say is goodbye
We're better off this way
We're better off this way

And every, everything isn't only
What it seemed so hold these
Words that you never told me
It's time to say goodbye
It's time to say goodbye
It's time to say goodbye
Goodbye

Bye

Take my pain away
Spell it out
Tell me I was wrong
Tell me I was wrong

Take my pain away
Spell it out
Tell me I was wrong
Tell me I was wrong

Take my pain away
Spell it out
Tell me I was wrong
Tell me I was wrong

    this song is absolutly amazing.
    it makes me think so much about my ex,
    no matter how hard i try not to.
    i had to say goodbye to him,
    but no matter what i do he is always on my mind.

    I had to do that, to the one I love
    It was very hurtful but I got over it
    It was actually better off that way /: I still love her

    Goodbye, I'll always love you in some ways. We really are better off this way. I miss you everyday but it WILL get easier. We will move on, you already have.

    I just miss you. But it doesn't matter. Let me be free.
    I love you, goodbye forever.

    This song means a lot.
    Although it's probably about a romantic relationship, I see it as myself and a close friend.
    And I can't say goodbye.
    I'm convincing her I'm sorry, I have to.
