Say a prayer, Say your last goodbyes.
Leave me here, leave it all behind.

Bury this.
Walk away.
Let it die.

For a day, for a stitch in time.
This was good, this was all worth while.
But I'm a fool, it's not you, and I can't lie.

You shouldn't hang on,
It's already gone.
Don't wait by the phone.
I'm not coming home.
You shouldn't hang on.
It's already gone, away.

Take a breath.
Take a last good look.
Give it back.
Give back all you took.
You can see, it's not me, like you should.

You shouldn't hang on,
It's already gone,
Don't wait by the phone,
I'm not coming home.
You shouldn't hang,
It's already gone away.

So say goodbye for the last time.
Just like the last time we did.
Die for the last time.
I'll give it up, going on, on.

Say a prayer, say your last goodbye.
Leave me here, leave it all behind.
Everyone that you know let you down.

You shouldn't hang on.
It's already gone.
Don't wait by the phone.
I'm not coming home.
You shouldn't hang on.
It's already gone away.

Say goodbye for the last time, just like the last time.
Say goodbye for the last time, just like the last time.
Say goodbye for the last time.

    General Commenti think, this songs is refering to a couple.. she's still in love with him, while he is ready to leave. he's telling her to move on and not dwel on what just happened. to just leave him in her past. she still wants him in her life and she probably feels as if she can't live, or go on without him there. "You shouldn't hang on. It's already gone." she wants something that doesn't exsist anymore....

    at least that's my view..

    General CommentGood video and great song. It's almost self explanatory I think. I like their style of music. I'm looking forward to more of their music.

    General CommentI agree, this song kind of explains itself from from what i got is..the couple keeps breaking up because he said at the end say goodbye for the last time just like the last time..and if you see the music video it looks like she is ready to say goodbye for the last time by jumping into the pool and killing herself but instead her pool of tears stops her from dying. i think the song is about trying to let go..but she cant.

    General Commenti think its pretty self explanitory. but, for those of you who even care about what i have to say, heres what i think : say your last goodbye. cause' this guy is leaving. and this girl doesnt want him to leave. doesnt want him to go. wants to stay together. but hes saying "dont wait by the phone,im nto coming home" as in, im literally not coming home. dont wait up for me. we're through. telling her to let go basically,cause he doesnt want to be in the relationship anymore. good song.

    General Commentthe music video is so sad. i think. does the girl kill herself in the end, even though she falls into all her tears and drown? if you know, please let me know, because i dont and it confuses me.

    General CommentActually i always thought of it as him commiting suicide, not leaving a girl. He is leaving and saying "goodbye"

    and the music video makes that pretty clear....LOL
