say the words you'll say
and turn and walk away
hold your breath
for the last time
as you say goodbye
say goodbye to me

just one more dance
and i'll be gone for good, tomorrow
just one last chance
to hear your heart beating
next to mine

and if this is
the last time that i hold you
just know that i still meant
everything i said

when i said
"i still needed you"

and i won't forget
the day we met
how could i ever forget you

and these are the days
that we won't compromise
but you just needed
to do this on your own
but i won't make it through
this thunderstorm romance
just give me one last chance
to say

tonight i will breath the summer air
that reminds me of you
and i promised myself
that i would never drive past your old house
but sometimes i hate you
for leaving me as jaded as i am
and sometimes i miss you so much
that i can hardly breath

and is this what you want

and no more holding hands
walking on the warm sand
in the middle of july

and these are the days
that we won't compromise
and you just needed
to do this on your own
but i won't make it through
this thunderstorm romance
just give me one last chance
to say

goodbye

and these are the last steps i will take
from a northbound train
in the pouring rain
the pouring rain

and these are the last steps i will take
from a northbound train
in the pouring rain
the pouring rain

and these are the days
that we won't compromise
and you just needed
to do this on your own
but i won't make it through
this thunderstorm romance
just give me one last chance
to say goodbye

goodbye

goodnight, goodnight

goodbye

    General Commenti think matt wrote this song about bridgit because they broke up and he's just reminincing about their times together.
