You left me with goodbye and open arms
A cut so deep I don't deserve
You were always invincible in my eyes
The only thing against us now is time

[Chorus:]
Could it be any harder to say goodbye and without you,
Could it be any harder to watch you go, to face what's true
If I only had one more day

I lie down and blind myself with laughter
A quick fix of hope is what I'm needing
And now i wish that i could turn back the hours
But i know i just don't have the power

[Chorus]
I'd jump at the chance
We'd drink and we'd dance
And I'd listen close to your every word,
As if it's your last, I know it's your last,
Cause today, oh, you're gone

[Chorus]

Like sand on my feet
The smell of sweet perfume
You stick to me forever,baby
And I wish you didn't go,
I wish you didn't go
I wish you didn't go away
To touch you again,
With life in your hands
It couldn't be any harder

    The song is about watching someone you care about and love slowly dying (as with cancer or other aggressive illness), but you don't want to admit the truth of it to yourself.

    I have another interpretation for this song. An interpretation of how i felt sorry about what happened to me and to my ex-girlfriend. We were very happy until the time that she had a lot of work. And she couldn't handle her schedules anymore. She coulnd't fine time for our relationship. I tried to understand and find a solutions but with all the solutions and everything i did,. We decided to end our relationship. Even though it ended i was still holding on it. We still love each other so much, thats why it hurts to much. Months passed without seing each other or not having any communications at all, one day i called and talked to her, i asked for another chance for us,. And she said "i can't promise anything, i still don't know what to do,. I don't want you to keep on hoping" i guess that's the cue for me that i have to really give everything up. =( i was so down and broken then i decided to be happy and start all over. And then i met a new girl that really changed me for better. Obviously we are in a relationship now.

    Now i found out that my ex girlfriend wants me back promised to try her best this time but she couldn't promise if she can prioritize our relationship. It was really hard for me because it was not easy for me to forget about her. But i really love my girlfriend now. And it was hard because i know my ex was still in pain and she still love me very much, i love my girlfriend so much, i couldn't affort to break her heart. I now that i am very happy because i choose to love and be loved again..

    Last month i decided to talk to my ex and finally let her go...

    I like this song because, it's makes me feel the sadness that i felt when i was still with my ex girlfriend and if she could have only fought for our relationship and did something to prioritze it, but now it's too late because i have somebody with me that i really love now and that really love me back in return...

    I learned a lesson,. And that is to be patient no matter how hard. Be strong no matter how it hurts. Because you can never go back from what you have left...

    And now i'm very happy with my girlfriend, and everyday i make sure that i always make her happy.

    Could it be any harder to say goodbye (without you) i said good bye to my ex and started to have a new life with my new girlfriend.

    Like sand on my feet
    The smell of sweet perfume
    You stick to me forever baby
    I wish you didn't go,i wish you didn't go
    I wish you didn't go away! > i wish you didn't let me go,. I wish you didn't let me give up. So we could start all over again together,. But it was too late.

    Fade away fade away > my love fades away... Because of the girl that i love now,. And she loves me so much...
