"The Best That I Can Give" as written by David Hall Hodges, Jess Clayton Cates and Emerson Hart....
If you're reading this, then I'm long gone.
Wish I'd had the strength to prove you wrong.
But instead I broke your heart of glass-
Some things I guess you can't give-

Back when we started; before the storm came-
I gave you sometimes; you needed always.
Thought we were fine, but you saw it first-
Now I can give you the life you deserve, so-

Goodbye, love-
Hang onto the long night.
There's beauty in the sunrise, and you will find-
That goodbye is the hardest thing that I could do.
After all the pain I put you through-
It's the best that I can give;
The best that I can give to you.

It's so hard to see it come to this;
When the truth is blinded by the wish-
Instead of bending I just watched you break.
And now it's too late.

Back when we started; before the storm came-
I gave you sometimes; you needed always.
Thought we were fine, but you saw it first-
Now I can give you the life you deserve, so-

Goodbye, love-
Hang onto the long night.
There's beauty in the sunrise, and you will find-
That goodbye is the hardest thing that I could do.
After all the pain I put you through-
It's the best that I can give;
The best that I can give to you.

Ohh-
We'll always have this after the broken-
All that was given is not forgotten.

So goodbye, love-
Hang onto the long night.
There's beauty in the sunrise-
Goodbye is the hardest thing that I could do.
After all the pain I put you through-
It's the best that I can give;
The best that I can give to you.
Goodbye-
If you're reading this, then I'm long gone.
Goodbye-
Wish I'd had the strength to prove you wrong.
Goodbye-
But instead I broke your heart of glass-
Some things I guess you can't give back.
