"Saying Goodbye" as written by and Mitch Allan Joshua Randall....
I watched the sun come up over
The Chicago skyline
Drove through a whole night
Just to make it right

The last thing I remember
You were begging me not to go
You had that look of sadness on your face
That only I would know

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
Like it was the last time

I thought I forgot my past
But that all changed today
(That all changed today)
I know it was wrong of me to try to throw this all away
(Throw this all away)

So if you give it just one more try
I'll give you everything you need
She said, "Just tell me what changed your mind
What brought you back to me?"
And I said

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
We always thought that those days would last
We felt so high
And how we spent the whole night
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
Like it was the last time
(Like it was the last time)

Another month that's faded away
Minutes feel like hours, hours like days
"When will I see you again?"
She said, she said

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
We always thought that those days would last
We felt so high
And how we spent the whole night
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
Like it was the last time
(Like it was the last time)

    General CommentIt looks fine to me.

    I'm shocked there aren't any comments, this song along with Tell Me I'm A Wreck are my two favorite from Picture Perfect. The meaning's kinda tricky if you ask me. A guy let a girl go, and he came back remembering the good times...but it loses me at "Another month that's faded away / Minutes feel like hours, hours like days / 'When will I see you again?' / She said, she said" I get confused right there.

    Still, some of Ev Ave's best work. They can't read me, but keep this up, guys! <3

    Song MeaningI think that this song is about a summer fling. He must have gone on a holiday with his family during the summer and then had to leave.
    "Another month that's faded away
    Minutes feel like hours, hours like days
    "When will I see you again?" "
    I think what that means is he still wants to see her again and be with her and it feels like they've been apart for a long time.
    "She said, she said

    I thought a lot about the summers passed
    Your hair in your eyes
    And how we spent the whole night
    Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
    We always thought that those days would last
    We felt so high
    And how we spent the whole night
    Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
    Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
    Like it was the last time
    (Like it was the last time)"
    I think that means she wants to see him as well.
    I'm not sure if that's the real meaning, just what I think it's about.
