Trading Yesterday – My Last Goodbye lyrics

I've got to walk away while there's still hope
Learn to erase the love I know
And let you go
'Cause what I thought was love was only lies
Taking what you want, left me behind
As my heart dies

So here we are again
Knowing this will never end
So I must let go

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here
And waste my whole life
Waste my whole life

I can see you now with opened eyes
When you come around I realize
That I don't need you to survive

I will not begin
The fight that we could never end
So I am letting go

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here
And waste my whole life
Waste my whole life...

My passion, my poison
The life and death of me
I can't take you taking everything
From a love never meant to be

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here
And waste my whole life

This is my last goodbye
This will be my final tear for love to die
I will not wait here
And waste my whole life
With my last goodbye

    To me, this song is about giving up the love that even though you desperately want, you know it just can't happen. You want nothing more then to love (and be loved by) this person, but you also realize that it just won't be able to happen. So, instead of wasting your entire life trying to convince yourself to say goodbye, you simply leave and forget this person. Although leaving is hard, saying good-bye is even harder.

    This song helped me get over a painful love in my life that ended up proving itlself to be a complete lie. I took risks and wasted to many tears on that boy, and this show helped me realize that I can't live that way. It is helping me stil, to forget about him, and leave eveything that reminds me of him behins and move on so I can be a completely happy person without him breaking me down everyday.

    I disagree with this only cause I'm on the other side. I am only human and have made mistakes that I'm not proud of I didn't cheat only stupid little lies and I'm hanging on to my fiancé by a string! I wouldn't want him to just put me behind him! If you truly love someone then you will fight and if you can get through toughest times then it's not wasting your whole life! Idk just really upset that I hurt the man I love so bad and just am grateful he is sticking by my side still!

    Leave it behind you can do better without out if you have to waste your life for it then it ain't meant to be. Say goodbye and let it go, walk away. Just walk away.
    Also samdeezy I can relate to you on that one. That happened to me too don't worry it'll get better one day. Well I hope it does or did for you. :) sometimes it is better to put it down and walk away.
