"Adios ayer" as written by Stephen Charles Bennett and Jose Maria Padilla Requena....
Thinking of tomorrow
With the sunset in your eyes
I feel everything and sorrow
So I have to say goodbye

Didn't think that we would love like this
I never thought that I would care
Slowly now I read the writing
It can free us if we dare

If there is
New love
New ways
New changes in our lives
Those times will last forever

If there is
New love
New ways
New changes in our lives
Those times will last forever
And ever

Didn't think that we could love like this
I never thought that I would care
Slowly now I read the writing
It will free us if we dare

If there is
New love
New ways
New faces in our lives
Those times will last forever

If there are
New loves
New ways
New faces in our lives
Those times will last forever
And ever

    General CommentI believe the title of this is actually "Adios Ayer 2001". Adios Ayer is more instrumental, and only has the first verse repeated.

    I'm thinking "I feel everything and sorrow" is actually "I fill everything with sorrow". Or maybe "I feel everything with sorrow". It sounds like that to me and makes more sense.

    I think it's about a relationship that he didn't think would last or be anything important - "Didn't think that we would love like this; I never thought that I would care" - and now he realizes how important she is to him. He feels that he is emotionally damaged - "I feel everything with sorrow" - and because of this he's leaving her - "So I have to say goodbye". He wants her to be happy and feels that he is dragging her down with what I think is probably depression - "Thinking of tomorrow; With the sunset in your eyes." - and he's talking about how he's thinking about her being happy/alive (??) "tomorrow" watching the sun setting.

    "Slowly now I read the writing; It will free us if we dare." I think he's saying that he realizes that he needs to leave, the relationship's over, and they can be free if they dare to let go.

    "If there is new love new ways; New faces in our lives; Those times will last forever". He's telling her that they both need to go on living and as long as they do, their times together will always be in their memories. Maybe?

    This is all just my take, but I get the vibe that maybe he's depressed and she's suicidal, and they're making it worse by being together. Maybe he blames her being suicidal on his depression? Or maybe he's the suicidal one and it's bringing her down, so he's leaving and the last verse is him telling himself not to do anything stupid, not her.

    Anyways.... thoughts?
