"Goodbye" as written by Rufus Lee Cooper, Mutah W. Beale, Malcolm Greenidge, Katari T. Cox, Kamil Beale and Muntaqim Farid....
Sometimes, what may be the best thing for you to do
Sometimes it the hardest thing for you to do
And that's real
'Cause I know that I love you
I know how I feel about you
But I also know that I don't make everything alright
And for that reason
I gotta say goodbye

Tell me have you ever been in a
Situation where the best thing you could do
was the hardest thing you've ever done
But you try to do whats right
And I know that deep down inside
That I really wanna be there by your side
But I can't stand to see you cry
Not when it's because of me

And it's over, I'll never love another
I'm always thinking of her, I'm doing this because of her

Don't wanna say goodbye
I don't wanna let her see me cry
Looking out the window and wondering why
Did we have to say all those things that we said last night
Baby I don't wanna say goodbye
So I'm just standing here wondering why
Just don't like to see when you cry
So I'ma say goodbye

If you think I 'cause I packed your stuff
That inside I ain't really really cracking up
'Cause you're wrong, I just hide it good
'Cause I know that's what you need
And there's more to life than loving yourself
You gotta learn to love somebody else
And that's why I do the things that I do

And its over, I'll never love another
I'm always thinking of her, I'm doing this because of her

Don't wanna say goodbye
I don't wanna let her see me cry
Looking out the window and wondering why
Did we have to say all those things that we said last night
Baby I don't wanna say goodbye
So I'm standing here wondering why
Just don't wanna see when you cry
So I'ma say goodbye

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

There's no one in this world that can ever take your place
All the love that we share, it can never be erased
And I know that, that it hurts so bad
And it's so that, that you're the best I've had

    General CommentI agree. One of their best songs....and pretty self-explanatory as well. Even though it's the hardest thing for him to do, it's the right thing to do......in his eyes.

    General CommentThis is by far his best song. I love it.. its pretty self-explanitory but its about a guy who has to break up with his girl for some reason.

    General CommentThis isn't really my type of music, but I still can't see how anyone could not love this song. When my boyfriend broke up w/ me all I did was lay in my bed with this song on repeat and cried for endless night. Everything just meshs so well together - the backround, the harmonizing; everything. This is just a great song.

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song. it speaks to me so clearly. its about being in a relationship that is, for whatever reason, now working. but still being absolutly in love anyway. and just knowing that the only smart thing to do is end it, even though thats the hardest thing to do. totally a great song!

    General CommentI think that even though the song is about breaking up it is a sweet song and that's why I'm printing it out
