On the morning of
A day I should love
And the start of the Spring
Now my day was snowed in

So I rushed you off the phone
How should I have known
It's the last I'll hear your voice
Telling me goodbye

Pulling a blanket up to cover everyone
All shut out, I was wrapped up in myself
And my guilt

Now I'm not holding on, but I can't let go
Wish my guilt could sit up on a shelf, by itself

While I'll rush you off the phone
How would I have known
It's the last I'll hear your voice
Telling me goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Never say goodbye

I never should have let you down
How am I going to let this go
Oh no

    General CommentMaybe it's about his grandfather, I know Ace lost him right at the end of TEN's last tour, amidst the break-up of the band and everything maybe his life was hectic and he may have skipped out on talking or visiting his grandfather, and then he passed away before Ace got another chance to talk to him. This song seems to be about regret, so maybe it's regret for not getting to say goodbye to him. This is just a guess.

    Lyric CorrectionAlso, during the goodbyes.. this is what's repeated:


    Never say goodbye..

    General CommentIs this song about an actual person or is it more of a metaphor about losing something/someone? If it is really about an actual person, I wonder who that person is?
