Is this goodbye and farewell? it's a romantic tragedy
All is fair in love and war and I'm the lonely casualty

Your forked tongue has lost it's sharpness
It does'nt have the luster it used to before
Sure it takes a lot of soul to forgive
So let me show you your way out of that door

You are a beautiful walking mistake and from you I have learned
How could someone so true be so fake? Now you're none of my concern

Let go- you are nothing I deserve
- your acting's all but superb
- a romance for the deaf and blind
- with such poor taste and design

These calloused hands are shaking and I'm breathing heavily
Soon all of this will be over shadows reaching out to me

Sweet nothings in my ears now they disgust
Those letters you've sent now gather dust
Sure it takes a lot of soul to forgive
I'm dead with you and now I want to live

You are a beautiful walking mistake and from you I have learned
How could someone so true be so fake? Now you're none of my concern

Let go- you are nothing I deserve
- your acting's all but superb
- a romance for the deaf and blind
- with such poor taste and design

And now this is the time and I cannot pretend
The day I live again is when our story ends

Dramatic lies and severed ties in bloodstained cradles lay
Despite the loss that bridge I'll cross come calm or storm what may
We drank the wine the undivine process of suicide
Let it be known apart we've grown I gave you everything I own
And as you make your final exit I let our story slip away
I bury you with the memories of a forgotten yesterday

    SYMOn,im so sorry of my stupidity.I wonder what life it will be if I chose you. I love you but i was wrong to hurt you. Now i'm still longing to hold you...you're just near but i can't ...hope you forgive me and hope to be with you at the right time.Always remember that i always love you though I have to learn the art of letting go...

    i was a broken hearted thought that its hard for me to forget.till i met someone i never expected to love... i have been to pain ... never wished to get hurt again..now my ego is stronger than love. I showed that i can live without him.Accidentally i found someone who fed my ego...
    but i don't love him that much though we are one year already ...i know from my heart that i still love the second man to mylife but i can't return to him...though we still love each other...welll i really have to learn the art of letting go!
