So this is it
I say goodbye
To this chapter of my everchanging life
And These mistakes
The path is long
And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone

When the day comes in
And the Sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who cared enough
That I finally left this place

That's been so cold
Look at my face
All the stories it will tell I can't erase
The road is long
Just one more song
A little something to remind you when I'm gone
When I'm gone

The road to Hell
Along the way
Is paved with good intentions so they say
And some believe
That no good deed
That go unpunished in the end or so it seems

When the day comes in
And the Sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who cared enough
That I finally left this place

That's been so cold
Look at my face
All the stories it will tell I can't erase
The road is long
Just one more song
A little something to remind you when I'm gone
When I'm gone

So this is it
I say goodbye
To this chapter of my everchanging life
And These mistakes
The path was long
And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone
When I'm gone

    You can look at it as if the person wants to die or dying. But in life things are ever changing some for the worst, some for the better. Life has chapters as if it's a book. The song makes me think of reflection on those chapters in life. We reflect at times of our mistakes, or errors in judgement. Our wrong doings. And we often wonder if we are a good person. The fact that we look back and question if we have done good or bad shows that we are conscious of the fact, and that tells us that we are in fact a decent person. We often wonder if anyone will miss us, will they care, do they care? We love and we often wonder are we loved? So to me this song speaks of his humanity his love and loneliness in a dark place and reflection of the past. His next chapter may be life or it may be death but he will not be the same person he was when he ventured into the darkness.

    My boyfriend of 6 yrs called me the day of killing himself and told me to listen to this song , i didn't think anything of it he always loved staind , but i would hope this means that when no gone no matter what had happened in your hard life ( you did not deserve ) the pains no longer there and you want all of us who cared for you that you finally left and are st peace.

    "so this is it, i say goodbye" reminds me of the words by best friend at 42 years old found out he had terminal cancer, he just looked at me and said "such as life"
    it's a very amazing song that has a special meaning to each person that hears it

    Saying goodbye. Sometimes you have to say goodbye even to people who love you in order to better yourself. Everyone will see this song differently but never the less its a great song. I hope no one ever ruins it by doing a cover of this song :/
