my lyricsbox
hmmm
bye bye

how do you love someone
that hurts you oh so bad
with intentions good
was all he ever had

but how do I let go when I've
loved him for so long and I've
givin him all that I could
maybe love is a hopeless crime
giving up what seems your lifetime
what went wrong with something once so good?

chorus:
how do you find the words to say (to say, to say)
to say goodbye (goodbye)
(find the words to say goodbye)
when your heart don't have the heart to say (to say, to say)
to say goodbye (goodbye)
(find the words to say goodbye)

I know now I was naive
never knew where this would lead (ya ya ya ya)
and I'm not tryin' to take away (oh no)
from the good man that he is

but how do I let go when I've
loved him for so long and I've
givin' him all that I could
was it something wrong that we did?
oh, cause others infiltrated
what went wrong with something once so good?

[chorus]

is this the end (end)
are you sure (are you sure)
how should you know when you've never been here before
it's so hard (hard)
to just let go (just let go)
when this is the one and only love I've ever known (known) so...

[chorus]
how do you find the words to say (when it's been so long)
to say goodbye (to say goodbye)
(find the words to say goodbye)
when your heart don't have the heart to say (hmm hmm yea)
to say goodbye (to say, to say goodbye)
(find the words to say goodbye)

how do you find the words to say (to say, to say goodbye)
to say goodbye (to say, to say goodbye, my love)
(find the words to say goodbye) (oo oo yea)
when your heart don't have the heart to say (no my heart don't have the heart...)
to say goodbye (to say, to say...)

(fades)
