"goodbye, goodnight, for good" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
Jealousy rears its ugly head
I won't forget the things you said before you turned your back
Goodbye, goodnight, for good remember my face when you feel the pain
Say goodbye

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed for the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes,
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep
Sleep tight, goodnight
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye

Goodbye helps me to sleep without your memories
And my shattered dreams collect dust on what used to be a lie
It haunts me no more and now you're gone, you've left me alone
I wasn't wrong to feel this way inside so goodbye, goodnight, for good

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed for the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes,
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep
Sleep tight, goodnight
Choke on the lies that were your last

I find pleasure in the taste of your decay
I anxiously watch you fade away

I can't explain what's happening inside of me
I refuse to fight you anymore
All I know is I have to make sure
Make sure you never wake up again

Soft flesh gives way to trembling hand

Beautiful eyes are sewn shut
Searing thread suffocates the light

    General CommentI luv this song! It's a pity that this is a non album track but nevertheless it's pure heartcore. Just mention the wonderful excerpt:"Now I'll fight with my eyes closed for the things I've let go". In my opinion this song is about an emotional breakup somebody has to cope with. At first he/she suffers but later all the feelings for the other person goes by. Finally recognized that it's the best to close the whole matter, all the beautiful experiences with the Ex.

    General CommentThe lyrics of the Where Myth Fades to Legend Album version...

    Jealousy rears its ugly head
    I won't forget the things you said before
    Goodbye, goodnight, for good...remember my face when you feel the pain
    Help me to sleep...

    Now I'll fight with my eyes closed for the things I've let go
    Sweet breath escapes...choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
    Hear my voice as you sleep...
    Sleep tight, goodnight...choke on the lies, they were your last...

    Goodbye helps me to sleep without your memory
    And my shattered dreams collect dust on what used to be a lie
    It haunts me no more and now you're gone, you've left me alone
    I wasn't wrong to feel this way inside so goodbye, goodnight, for good

    Now I'll fight with my eyes closed for the things I've let go
    Sweet breath escapes...choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
    Hear my voice as you sleep...
    Sleep tight, goodnight...choke on the lies,they were your last...

    I find pleasure in the taste of your decay
    I anxiously watch you fade away

    I can't explain what's happening inside of me
    I refuse to fight you anymore
    All I know is I have to make sure you never wake up again

    Soft flesh gives way to trembling hand...

    beautiful eyes are sewn shut
    searing thread suffocates the light
