standing at your door
just as nervous as the first time
and you greet me with a kiss
how could you know that i don't feel right
i wish there was a way i could want you
wish that i could be the right one for you
wish there was an easy way to say this

these words are heavy on my mind
like songs that say goodbye
like songs that say goodbye

how can i explain that you did everything the right way
yeah you made me feel safe and you made me want to say
things i couldn't say
wish i didn't have to watch you fall
wish this didn't have to hurt at all
wish there was an easy way to say this

these words are heavy on my mind
like songs that say goodbye
like songs that say goodbye

and i don't want to take it back
the time we had
got no regrets
i don't want to wonder if
we should have been
what could've been
what might've been

but i didn't to break you
i didn't want to break you
like songs that say goodbye
i didn't want to break you
i didn't want to break you
like songs that say goodbye
like songs that say goodbye

    General CommentThis is basically about feelings changing. You are in love with someone and they love you but slowly your love for them fades even though they are imperfectly perfect for you. Sometimes it's just something you can't help. You don't want to hurt them but you can't live a lie.

    General CommentI saw an interview with Schuyler talking about this song. She wrote it for a breakup, and put everything she wanted to say to the guy into the song, and played it for him...and it was a disaster! But she got a good song out of it. So basically what Konstantine said, she's in this relationship but she's not in love with the guy, so ends it.

    General CommentThis song definitely hits home for me. I wish i would've heard this song about 4 days ago, everything i felt and had to say is exactly what she is saying. I really did care for this guy, but I knew my heart wasn't in the right place. It killed me to hurt him but i couldn't live a lie.
