Album: A Twist In My Story (2008)
  • It's a shame that it had to be this way
    It's not enough to say I'm sorry
    It's not enough to say I'm sorry

    Maybe I'm to blame
    Or maybe we're the same
    But either way I can't breathe
    Either way I can't breathe

    All I had to say is goodbye
    We're better off this way
    We're better off this way

    I'm alive but I'm losing all my drive
    Cause everything we've been through
    And everything about you
    Seemed to be a lie
    A guiltless twisted lie
    It made me learn to hate you
    Or hate myself for letting it pass by

    All I had to say is goodbye
    We're better off this way
    We're better off this way
    All I had to say is goodbye
    We're better off this way
    We're better off this way

    And every, everything isn't only
    What it seemed so hold these
    Words that you never told me
    Its time to say goodbye
    Its time to say goodbye
    Its time to say goodbye
    Goodbye

    Bye

    Take my pain away
    Tear it out
    Tell me I was wrong
    Tell me I was wrong

    Take my pain away
    Tear it out
    Tell me I was wrong
    Tell me I was wrong

    Take my pain away
    Tear it out
    Tell me I was wrong
    Tell me I was wrong

  • Jordan from Holland, MiI though 'Goodbye' would probably be about a guy saying goodbye to his girlfriend, or maybe a death in the family, but t his makes sense too. John really made it good by himself. =]
