"Nothing good about this goodbye" as written by Alexis Rebecca Strum, Brian Thomas Higgins and Nick Coler....
I guess I should say what is on the tip of my tongue,
'Cause I've seen how it aches when you've missed your chance,
The time's gone,

Snap decisions cause you so much pain
Then you come 'round again and there's nothing left at all
Perfect vision, now I'm running blind
Too scared of what I'll find when you call

Only now I've let go
Honey, I just don't know
Sit right here and watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me, when I'm in your history
Baby, there ain't nothing good about this goodbye

If you are the one
This regret will last forever
'Cause nobody knows if we should stay together

Snap decisions cause you so much pain,
Then you come round again and there's nothing left at all,
Selfish, but I think its for the best
I'll miss you for the rest of my life

Only now I've let go
Honey, I just don't know
Sit right here and watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me, when I'm in your history
Baby, there ain't nothing good about this goodbye

Only now I've let go
Honey, I just don't know
Sit right here and watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me, when I'm in your history
Baby, there ain't nothing good about this goodbye

(Do do do, do do do, do do do, do do, do)

Snap decisions cause you so much pain,
Then you come round again and there's nothing left at all,
Selfish, but I think its for the best
I'll miss you for the rest of my life

Only now I've let go
Honey, I just don't know
Sit right here and watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me, when I'm in your history
Baby, there ain't nothing good about this goodbye

Only now I've let go
Honey, I just don't know
Sit right here and watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me, when I'm in your history
Baby, there ain't nothing good about this goodbye

    General CommentI love this song. This is probably my favourite Stevens song because i think it carries a lot more meaning and emotion in the lyrics than the other songs do.

    This is obviously about leaving someone you love but not knowing 100% whether it is the right thing to do and wondering how you will feel about it in the future. I really like the fact that Rachels singing in this song is quite subdued and while some would say that makes it less passionate I find it gives a melancholy feeling and a more thoughtful feel to the sound.
