It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday

  • How do I say goodbye to what we had?
    The good times that made us laugh
    Outweigh the bad

    I thought we'd get to see forever
    But forever's gone away
    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

    I don't know where this road
    Is going to lead
    All I know is where we've been
    And what we've been through

    and if we get to see tomorrow
    I hope it's worth all the wait
    so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

    And I'll take with me the memories
    To be my sunshine after the rain
    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

    And I'll take with me the memories
    To be my sunshine after the rain
    It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday Writer/s: Christine Yarian Perren, Frederick Perren
