How long I’ll wait
Just to say goodbye
Ten different ways to enjoy this night
Can’t do this anymore
Won’t feel you anymore

How long I’ll wait
Just to say goodbye
You could never let me in
Holding on until the end

The time I waste just to say goodbye
Out of your way
I could do this right
Can’t see you anymore
Won’t feel you anymore

How long I’ll stay
Just to say goodbye, say goodbye

Leave it all the fights and all
Summer’s getting colder
Drive all night to hold you tight
Back to California
Days went by
We waited and I guess we’re getting older
We couldn’t win in the end

You’re gone
I’m miles away
Turning out the lights
Ten different ways I could end this night
Can’t do this anymore
Won’t feel you anymore

How long I’ll wait
Just to say goodbye, say goodbye

Leave it all the fights and all
Summer’s getting colder
Drive all night to hold you tight
Back to California
Days went by
We waited and I guess we’re getting older
We couldn’t win in the end

We couldn’t win in the end
We couldn’t win in the end

You’re gone

    General CommentMy ex best friend and girlfriend for a short while showed me this song. Although i'm not a huge sugarcult fan, this song is touching. We're not friends anymore.. but at the time, we were so sure it was love.

    "We couldnt win in the end"
    "Out of your way, I could do this right"...

    wow.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who thought he and this girl were in love, but as things start changing and the love is fading he knows he must let go of her no matter how hard it is. i can definitely relate.

    General Comment"I guess we're getting older" that is really touching.. so bittersweet...

    The line that gets to me the most is the "Ten different ways I could end this night"

    General CommentFinally getting out of an unhealthy relationship you thought you couldn't live without.
    No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't make it work.

    General Comment"summer's getting colder" , "i guess we're getting older" I LOVE THIS SONG! to me this song is just about having problems and having to move on, that nothing ever stays the same. (I guess I'm just a sucker for rock ballads......

    General Commentthis song is about how as their relationship grew, the fights became more consistent but they still loved each other. thry struggled too much to stay together and couldn't keep the relationship going, hence when he says "Days went by. We waited and I guess we’re getting older. We couldn’t win in the end"
