"Say Goodbye" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
You don't know me
Like you knew me
You stopped listening
The moment I needed you most
You can't see me
Like you saw me
Truth comes easy
But it's hard for you to pull me from the ground
So I scream, scream cause it hurts
Your every word
Cuts me inside and leaves me worse
There's no way back
And what if there was
You'd still be you and
It'd still need to say goodbye
Maybe you don't
Love me
Like I love you baby
Cause the broken in you doesn't make me run
There is beauty
In the dark side
I'm not firhgtened
Without it I could never feel the sun
Nothing will change no matter what you say
I'm still gonna be the same
The harder we try, the harder that we fight, can't get it right You don't know me
Like you knew me
You stopped listening
The moment I needed you most
You can't see me
Like you saw me
Truth comes easy
But it's hard for you to pull me from the ground
So I scream, scream cause it hurts
Your every word
Cuts me inside and leaves me worse
There's no way back
And what if there was
You'd still be you and
It'd still need to say goodbye
Maybe you don't
Love me
Like I love you baby
Cause the broken in you doesn't make me run
There is beauty
In the dark side
I'm not firhgtened
Without it I could never feel the sun
Nothing will change no matter what you say
I'm still gonna be the same
The harder we try, the harder that we fight, can't get it right

    General CommentI always thought the lyrics were

    There's no way back
    And what if there was
    You'd still be you and
    I'm still me
    so say goodbye

    General Commentthis song reminds me of something lindsay lohan would sing. (and it's not a good thing). the melody of the verses is annoying--very amateur sounding.

    General Commenti LOVE the lyrics..but not the music, or the vocals, thats just me. the lyrics are amazing though

    shes kindof saying that [obviously] she really needed someone and when she did, is when they werent there. sounds like she wants to give up, but only because they feel like giving up..the "broken in them" doesnt "make her run" but shes afraid that the broken in her will make THEM run. and that no matter how hard they try, it just keeps getting worse

    thats just me though

    General CommentTo me it means that as much as she wants it to work, it can't and won't, this part espcailly shows this:
    "There's no way back
    And what if there was
    You'd still be you and
    It'd still need to say goodbye "

    General Commenti LOVE the part thats like 'theres no way back, but if there was you'd still be you and id still need to say goodbye'...its awesome because its true...like if it wasnt a good relationship because it obv failed cuz he was a dick or something and why wish for things to be back where they were or for the guy back because he'd still be the same asshole and you'd still end up saying 'goodbye'...thats why i like this song cuz its so true, once an ass always an ass.
