Time passes by, direction unknown
You've left us now but we're not alone
Before you know it your cup's overflown
You measure no one that I've ever known

And it's quite alright
And goodbye for now
Just look up to the stars
And believe who you are
Cause it's quite alright
And so long, goodbye

We always knew that it'd come to this
It's times like these I forget what I miss
Matters of heart are hard to address
Especially when yours is full of emptiness

And it's quite alright
And goodbye for now
Just look up to the stars
And believe who you are
Cause it's quite alright
And so long, goodbye

As time passes by, direction unknown
You've left us now but we're not alone
Before you know it your cup's overflown
You've mentioned no one that I've ever known

And it's quite alright
And goodbye for now
Just look up to the stars
And believe who you are
Cause it's quite alright
And so long, goodbye.

    Good gracious, this song always makes me so sad when it makes me think about somebody that I wish I could forget.

    It's like the perfect broken heart song. It's quite beautiful. It's for those who have been crushed by life... For those that have to leave... Possibly for those who have died or are dying... Painfully sweet... Listen and respect... Love and let go... Live and let die... Be all you can be and don't hold back... Sum 41... You made the best heart-breaking song... Thank you... I need this song so much...

    duh about the band member leaving... but i agree, it is saddening. It makes me think of, like, a loved one abandoning you... usually I dont enjoy the slower songs as much as the faster ones by Sum41, but i really like this one. GOOD JOB BOYS!!! ILY
