The saddest thing is you could be anything you could want.
We could've been everything, but now we're not.
Now it's not anything at all.
The hardest part was getting this close to you
and giving up this dream I built with you.
A fairy tale that isn't coming true.
You've got some growing up to do.

I wish we could have worked it out.
I wish I didn't have these doubts,
I wish I didn't have to wonder just what you are doing now.
I wish I didn't know inside
That it won't work out for you and I.
I wish that I could stop this wishing and just say my last goodbye.

After all the things you put me through,
tell me why I'm still in love with you.
Why am I, why am I still waiting for your call?
You broke my heart, I'm taking it back from you.
I'm taking back the life I gave to you.
Life goes on before and after you.
I've got some growing up to do.

I wish we could have worked it out.
I wish I didn't have these doubts,
I wish I didn't have to wonder just what you are doing now.
I wish I didn't know inside
That it won't work out for you and I.
I wish that I could stop this wishing and just say my last goodbye.

Goodbye, Goodbye, It's time I say my last goodbye.

I wish we could have worked it out.
I wish I didn't have these doubts,
I wish I didn't have to wonder just what you are doing now.
I wish I didn't know inside
That it won't work out for you and I.
I wish that I could stop this wishing and just say my last goodbye.

Goodbye, Goodbye, It's time I say my last goodbye.

    General CommentWow. This song describes my feelings exactly about my ex, it's like I wrote it myself. It took me so long to get to him- to get him to see that I liked him as more than a best friend, to get him to see I really wanted a relationship. But then he broke up w/me after just a month. He couldn't get over his ex, and it was killing me- I loved him, but I knew he loved her not me. So he broke up w/me so I wouldn't have to go thro that anymore. Except I still really love him, and I hate myself for that. & I can't seem to say goodbye.

    General CommentI think it's about this guy she liked for a long time, yet he never liked her back. Never gave her a chance...
    Like me...

    General Commentthis song fits for me right now, i had a relationship with this guy who i was madley in love with for about eight months and then i fell out of love and i broke up with him like two months past, i ended up hanging out with the other guy again, and now i realize how much i miss him and now i want him backnow hes in love with another girl. so basicly i threw away my perfect guy and im pretty sure he doesnt want me back. and im starting to realize i should just say goodbye and give up. :[

    General CommentOh my gosh! I LOVE this song- it's like every time I get depressed about my crush, "rick" I listen to this song and Iknow, I'm NOT the only one feeling like this... It totally sucks!! (Not the song, the feeling)

    The hardest part was getting this close to you
    and giving up this dream I built with you.
    A fairy tale that isn't coming true.

    Those 3 lines are the freaking story of my life!!! :-(
