I'm getting good at saying goodbye,
But I've always been better at believing
That you're better off

{Chorus}
Wherever you go,
Go with all your heart
Worn out, and broken in
Like hand-me downs
And every memory
Is like a skipping stone
You'll never understand
How long it took the tides
To bring them back to us

I'm getting good at saying goodbye,

{Chorus}

And we grow into those sadder songs
And leave out love behind,
In every single line.

Maybe that's the only place it can really live
But you could never understand (you don't care x2)
You would never understand (you don't care x2)

Wherever you go(x3)
Every memory,
Is like a skipping stone
You'll never understand
How long it took the tides
To bring them back to us.

And we grow into those sadder songs
And leave out love behind,
In every single line.

I'm getting good at saying goodbye.

    I feel like this song is about getting so used to being left behind, that they are not used to saying goodbye, but they still have the hope that someone will come back. They are getting tired of being loved and left, just because they are used to being abandoned does not mean that they want it to keep happening, but that is what they have come to expect.

    The older we grow, the more life experiences we gain, not always good ones. We understand more about those sad songs we always hear, and we really connect with what the song is saying. When we are young, most of us take love for granted, but as we get older, we come to realize that love really is not a constant at all, and not everyone gets the fairy tale ending they were searching for. Some people just give up on love in general and move on with their lives. In some ways, it seems like this song is about giving up. They are losing their ideals on love because of how many times they have lost their love, even temporarily.

    Its about letting go of someone, but knowing or hoping they remember all that you shared like you still do
    'go with all your heart
    Worn out, and broken in
    Like hand-me downs"
    This is in away saying that you were once in their heart you know that person was once yours
