  • I heard you laughing in a crowd outside a restaurant we used to go to
    I caught a glimpse that stopped me in my tracks
    It took me back
    You looked happy with that little girl on your shoulders, happy
    I know where she got those crystal eyes of blue
    Time’s been sweet to you

    As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
    I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved
    Sometimes life leads you down a different road
    When you’re holding on to someone that you gotta let go
    Someday you’ll see the reason why
    Sometimes, yeah sometimes, there’s good in goodbye

    I don’t regret it
    The time we had together
    I won’t forget it
    But we both ended up where we belong
    I guess goodbye made us strong
    And yeah I’m happy
    I found somebody too who makes me happy
    And I knew one day I’ll see you on the street
    And it’d be bittersweet

    As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
    I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved
    Sometimes life leads you down a different road
    When you’re holding on to someone that you gotta let go
    Someday you’ll see the reason why
    Sometimes, yeah sometimes, there’s good in goodbye
    Yeah, yeah

    As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
    I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved
    Sometimes life leads you down a different road
    When you’re holding on to someone that you got to let go
    Someday you’ll see the reason why
    Yeah someday you’ll see the reason why
    There’s good in goodbye, yeah
    There’s good in goodbye Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, HILLARY LEE LINDSEY, RYAN B TEDDER
