"The Goodbye Song" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Last year was one of our better years.
In a life full of separation
It's OK to second guess.
Just as long as you remember she's gone...

In the bright of day
It might seem like the stars are gone.
They never leave,
They come back when the sun moves on.

It's over now.
You watched me as I turned around.
It's not why, but how
The light is on.
I'll come home now.

I feel it's been such a long time
Since her eyes have met with mine.
I feel it's been such a long time
I'm glad you've made up your mind.
It's hurting me from the inside.
If I only had something to say.
Maybe if I prove that I'm right.
Will it still be safe to stay?

    General CommentAnyone know what album/ep this is on? i really want to hear it, from the words it sounds like a beautiful song... but knowing New Found Glory, it will probably be all fast! Not that I'm complaining or anything!

    General Commentthis songs gives me goose bumps! it's easy to relate to...i'm into the whole punk/emo scene right now. i think if it's a really great singer their voice can tell you so much. they're not just singing these words, they're feeling them.

    General Commentrainbow8711, "nothing gold can stay" is one of NFGs cds. But its also from a poem by Robert Frost, the last line. Its also more known from the book and the movie the outsides, theres a couple references to it in there and i think thats where NFG got it from. great book, great song, great band. check them all out.

    General CommentThe song is really great, one of my favorite NFG songs... it's nice and fast, but the piano intro and outro is just awesome. The lyrics are short and easy to understand, but still manage to have a deep meaning and some nice metaphors.
