"The Hardest Part of Letting Go... Sealed with a Kiss" as written by Dave Mustaine and Chris Broderick....
Such a pretty face
Radiant, I saw you across the room
I knew I had to have you
Thus started the chase
I knew I would do anything to take your hand and make you mine
But I learned long ago
If you love someone you have to let it go
Let it go, Let it go
The hardest part of letting go is saying
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye

Feathered away in a makeshift cell
Beneath the venomous moonlight
I unleash my plan to watch you fail
The one I am so ?
Go to sleep my love
And taste my sweet revenge upon your lips
Sealed with a kiss

I return to the masquerade ball
And hear the news of your weeping
Stone by stone imbued in the wall
Forever left for safekeeping
Go to sleep my love
And taste my sweet revenge upon your lips
Sealed with a kiss

But I learned long ago
If you love someone you have to let it go
Let it go, let it go
The hardest part of letting go is saying
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
(Goodbye)
(Let it go)

    General CommentThese are the right lyrics, not aristuma21's.

    This song seems to be about a person who falls in love with someone, and they become a couple. Soon, something happens that makes the main character turn against his love, and plots revenge towards her. At the end, he leaves her behind.

    Very emotional and powerful song, one of my favorites on Endgame.

    General CommentThis song has two different meanings in it, hardest part of letting go is about how dave mustaine met his wife, and sealed with a kiss, like rebellion11 said is about Edgar Allen Poe's writing of the cask of amontillado, very awesome song by the way

    General CommentI can't believe it, aristuma, you copied another user's lyrics again, you motherfucker. First on my This Day We Fight page, and then here. I hope the staff finally decides to kick you out of the site as the false idiot you are.

    General CommentI agree with you megadeth91768. And he says that his wife Pam didnt like the song.
    I presume he change some parts of the lyric and added sealed with a kiss with it. That made one of the best songs ever created!

    General CommentClose on Poe's story, "The Cask of Amontillado." But a better fit would be Poe's "The Black Cat," since this story is about a woman that he killed and kept her in immurement in his celler. In "The Black Cat" the narriator kills out of rage, while in the "The Cask of Amontillado," the narriator kills out of revenge. I don't think this makes for a good love song. I would not recomend putting this song on a mix tape for a girl.

    General CommentThis may not be the meaning but to me it means something along the lines of a Man meeting a woman, falling for her (but not her falling for him). Then she meets someone else before he can do anything and he waits patiently waiting and hoping for her relationship fails so he can get another chance. Although he realizes that he should just give up on her and let her go be with another person and not to hope for her relationships to fail so he can get another chance that wont be taken.

    That's just what it seems to me though.
