You left when the light began to fade
When all that surrounds you turns to grey
We watched you walk away

We watched you walk away

And now i'm standing here, falling apart
You let go of what you had at the start
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go
Everybody knew that it had to end
When the fire died out and you couldn't pretend
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go

You left as the final notes were played
When all that you feel gets in the way
The songs all sound the same

We watched you walk away

And now i'm standing here, falling apart
You let go of what you had at the start
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go
Everybody knew that it had to end
When the fire died out and you couldn't pretend
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go

And now i'm standing here, falling apart
You let go of what you had at the start
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go
Everybody knew that it had to end
When the fire died out and you couldn't pretend
And now i tell myself not to let it show
But oh it's hard to watch you go

It's hard to watch you go

    General CommentThis song is very personal to the boys, as its about ex-bass player Paul Taite..

    "You left when the light began to fade, When all that surrounds you turns to grey" - In the last few months that Paul had been active in the band, he had lost interest in the direction of Goodnight nurse.. which is sad.. but sadly true.

    "You let go of what you had at the start" - Paulo was their from the very early beginnings of GNN & was prized by the other two members as he was a great performer.

    "Everybody knew that it had to end
    When the fire died out and you couldn't pretend" - In the last few months Paul was in & out of appearances, gigs, etc.. being 'replaced' by Sam McCarthy(current guitarist). and it really was an uncertainty at the time of what was going on with Paul. Was he still in the band? had he left? were very re-occuring questions asked regaurding the band at this time. It was obvious that Paul wasn't feeling it anymore, but for quite some time he was 'still' in the band, but he wasn't at the same time..
