Saying Goodbye

Standard

Saying goodbye is a hard thing to do
You once loved me, and you know I loved you
Although it hurts, it’s better this way.
It would only get worse if we decided to stay.

Sometimes, it’s just not meant to be
We only saw what we wanted to see
And we tried–but it just wasn’t right
What was there yesterday, is gone tonight

I, yes, I will always love you
But I, no, I cannot stay
The problems we hid so well for so long
Have surfaced, and we can’t hide them away, anymore

You will always hold a place in my heart
Our memories will never die
But love’s over; we now part our ways
Saying “I’m sorry” won’t make anything change

I wish that I could say to you
that it will all be the same again–me and you
But I can’t make that guarantee
Only what’s meant to be can be meant to be

I know someday down the line
I’ll find new love, forever in time
What the future might hold, I cannot see
But I promise I’ll never lose the memories

But sometimes, it’s just not meant to be
We only saw what we wanted to see
And we tried, but it just wasn’t right
What was there yesterday, is gone tonight.

This is a song I wrote in 1997 after a break-up with a boyfriend
