"Beautiful Goodbye" as written by Adam Levine, Ammar Malik and Benjamin Joseph Levin....
Fed up with my destiny
And this place of no return
Think I'll take another day
And slowly watch it burn
It doesn't really matter how the time goes by
Cause I still remember you and I
And that beautiful goodbye

We staggered through these empty streets
Laughing arm in arm
The night had made a mess of me
Your confessions kept me warm
And I don't really miss you, I just need to know
Do you ever think of you and I
And that beautiful goodbye

When I see you now
I wonder how
I could of watched you walk away
If I let you down
Please forgive me now
For that beautiful goodbye

In these days of no regrets
I'll keep mine to myself
And all the things we never said
I can say for someone else
Cause nothing lasts forever, but we always try
And I just can't help but wonder why
We let it pass us by

When I see you now
I wonder how
I could of watched you walk away
If I let you down
Please forgive me now
For that beautiful goodbye

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my ex-boyfriend/ex-best friend. We ended on not so great terms, and now are seeing each other around. It stings to think of how things were great one second, and then we had to let it all go. Most of Amanda Marshall's songs remind me of this.

    General CommentTo me, this song is talking about a failed relationship that when the person whose point of view it is from, looks back, they regret the relationship ending, even though there probably wasn't anything they could have done to save it.

    General CommentI agree with the above.

    This song makes me want to sit back with a glass of wine and reminisce.

    General CommentWhen I was younger, I remember when that first chord of the outro kicked in after six seconds of silence... it scared the shit out of me.

    My InterpretationThe way I see it, she is resigned. She still remembers and misses him but she knows everything is lost and is not asking to have it back. I agree, it is nostalgic.
