The only thing that I could ever feel
I can't believe it wasn't real
The only thing that I could ever feel
I can't believe it wasn't real
You can't open your mouth
without telling a lie
but baby, you know how to say goodbye
The thing I spent my whole life
waiting for
has just walked out and locked the door
The thing I spent my whole life
waiting for
has just walked out and locked the door
You can't feel a thing
and you won't even try
but baby, you know how to say goodbye
I'm overjoyed to hear about your wedding
I'm writing you to wish you
every blessing
I'm overjoyed to hear about your wedding
I'm writing you to wish you
every blessing
and I'm so happy I could cry
Oh baby you know how to say goodbye

    General Commenthe's not really happy.
    she was everything he ever wanted and more.
    but she's gone with someone else, and he wants whats best for her....

    General CommentIt's one of those conflicted feelings. That sinking sensation in your gut when you realize that what you want more than anything is for your beloved to be happy. Except what makes her happy tears a hole in your heart you could drive a truck thru.
