I’ve got to walk away
While there’s still hope
Learn to erase
The love I know
And let you go

Cause what I thought was love
Was only lies
Taking what you want
Left me behind
As my heart dies

So here we are again
Knowing this will never end
So I must let go

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here and waste my whole life
And waste my whole life

I can see you now
With opened eyes
When you come around
And realize
That I don’t need you to survive

I will not begin
A fight that we can never win
So I’m letting go

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here and waste my whole life
And waste my whole life

My passion, my poison
The life and death of me
I can’t take you taking everything
From a love never meant to be

This is my last goodbye
Leaving all the memories of you behind
I will not wait here and waste my whole life

This is my last goodbye
This will be one final tear for love to die
I will not wait here and waste my whole life
With my last goodbye
With my last goodbye

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Its about a guy that is in a relationship that is getting bad and he just wants to leave before it gets worse and hurts them more. He doesnt want to waste his whole life on something that will never work.


    I absolutely love it.
    It really touched me because that is what i was going through once.

    General CommentI just happened to stumble across Trading Yesterday a few months ago. And it seems as if my life is in these songs. This one in particular really got me. I've been off and on with someone for the last 15 years. It wasn't as if we didn't want to make it work...the timing was always off. Life happens in that amount of time. Marriages, kids, divorces, moves...whatever the reason we were never able to make it work. This last time we decided to try, but again the same thing happened. The timing was off. Unfortunately this last time devastated me knowing we had to break it off again. The love is still there and it probably always will be, but someone had to take the plunge and say no more. Otherwise, I doubt I'd ever be able to truly move on with my life.

    So here we are again
    Knowing this will never end
    So I must let go

    these lyrics stood out (along with a lot of others). As much as I love him, I can't keep waiting on him to realize what he wants. And as much as it hurts to let him go, I know it was the right thing for me to do. It's been a month since I've let him go, and every day it is starting to hurt a little less. My Last Goodbye...pretty much says it all.

    This is my last goodbye
    This will be one final tear for love to die
    I will not wait here and waste my whole life
    With my last goodbye
    With my last goodbye
