"Before The Goodbye" as written by Brian Anthony Kierulf, Joshua M. Schwartz, Britney Spears and Brian Wayne Transeau....
Laying here in your arms
And you hold me tight, tight
Tryin' not to watch the clock
Tick, tickin' as the time goes by (by)
And I know that you best be on your way
But I'm wishin' I could make you stay
Stay with me for a while

Though
You're near
Still
I want to make it clear
Love
I will always be around

You're leaving
I'm waiting
Forgive me
I'm always missing you
Before the goodbye

I Feel It
Already
Forgive me
I'm always missing you
Before the goodbye

Kinda hard for me to let you know
I don't let my feelings show
How much I will miss in you
All the little things that make me weak
Your eyes and the way you speak
Without you baby I'm not me (I'm not me)

Though
You're near
Still
I want to make it clear
Love
I will always be around

    General CommentBT? I love that guy! So versatile it would seem! I saw the start of the comment and was shocked to see it was a Britney Spears song.

    General CommentEven though this song doesn`t make much sense ("I`m always missing you / Before the goodbye"?) . . . I really like the beats. This is actually a good song.

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually "And I know that you best be on your way". And its actually "Without you baby I'm not me".
    Im a britney fan and I love this song. As I see it some of Britney's best work was with BT, too bad he had to pull his songs off the album due to Jive!
    The lyricas are fairly straightforward. If you like the lyrics...or BT...or Britney! I strongly suggest you download this song.

    General CommentSuch a good song.
    Is should not have been cut from the "Britney" album. It was rumored, in the early stages of the making of the album that it would be the first single. It should have been, I like it more than "Slave" (which is also a good song in different ways)

    General CommentIt's amazing how in a site where you're supposed to read carefully the lyrics of a song and analyze them to know its meaning, all of the lyrics have a lot of mistakes. :S

    I love the song though... I'm not going to say its meaning 'cause it's pretty obvious.
