Of all the things I believe in
I just want to get it over with
Tears form behind my eyes
But I do not cry
Counting the days that past me by

I've been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I'm hearing are starting to get old
Looks like I'm starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend and I say

[Chorus]
Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I love
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

I still get lost in your eyes
And it seems like I can't live a day without you
Closing my eyes till you chase my thoughts away
To a place where I am blinded by the light but it's not right

[Chorus]

Oh yeah
It hurts to want everything & nothing at the same time
I want what's yours and I want what's mine
I want you but I'm not giving in this time

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

[Chorus]

And when the stars fall I will lie awake
You're my shooting star

    General Comment:This song is absolutely amazing. It can relate to so many people and you can tell in her voice she really feels what she's saying. Everytime I hear this song I think of a very sad episode of Buffy tVS that she guest appeared singing this song in =)

    General Comment:i <3 this song. When you are with someone it hurts to love but you need to love and you have to set them free..it kills the soul but the good times are fond and few.

    General Comment:this song is depressing but beautiful. i re-emphasize it is about a girl who got hurt in a relationship. she loves the guy, and is tempted to stay, but she knows she has to give him up 'cause it's no good for both of them :(
