How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad

I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

I don't know where this road
Is going to lead
All I know is where we've been
And what we've been through

And if we get to see tomorrow
I hope it's worth all the wait
It's hard to say goodbye to yesterday

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

    General CommentI spent a couple hours searching the net for songs to help me through my break-up with my gf. This one tells my sentiment exactly which is why it made me cry. To me, it's about a guy breaking up with a girl not because he wants to, but because he comes to the harsh realization that he has to. The acapella makes it that much more soulful.

    General CommentI love this song, the acapella version is even better than the one with music to it! its beautiful, they couldnt have written it any better really, this song has a lot of hidden meanings and its all how we percieve them that makes the difference! when i think about it i would say it might be about someone who died, and never having another chance to say i love you! Also it could be about a relationship "I thought we'd get to see forever, but forever has gone away" people like to wish that relationships will last forever but in reality you always have doubts but some people dont and its when you dont have those doubts that i feel you are meant to be forever!

    General CommentThis song is so sweet. It makes me think of broken friendships. I know its written about a romantic relationship but very time i hear it i think of graduation or a broken friendship
