"Hello and Goodbye"

so long my friend, don't say goodbye
just give me one last kiss beneath this glowing sky.
we'll go walking through the park
and hang out in the rain.
tell a joke and watch me smile
as we drink away the day.

and know the next time that you
make a wish upon a star
I'll be wishing on the same one that you do
and every night I'm all alone
in some burn out highway town
I'll be thinking of the day that I met you.

hello again, it's been to long.
what happened to our love
since the last time I was gone?

I detach myself again
and lose something everytime.
the solutions in the problem
temporarily alright.

and know the next time that you
make a wish upon a star
that sometimes it might actually come true.
our conversation can't consist of hello and goodbye
and the silence between saying I love you.
and sometimes I wonder 'bout that too.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful.
    i think its about how he fell in love with his best friend.
    and she fell in love with him.
    and they were happy and together and she broke it off.
    and they lost not only their romance, but their friendship.
    and he's sad.
    but that's just my interpretation.
    these lyrics are so perfect though.

    General CommentThis song is so sad, it makes me cry every time I hear it. It reminds me how horrible it is to love someone when they don't love you back, and the nostalgia of thinking back to all the good times you used to have.

    General CommentThis song never loses it's touch. The first time I heard this song was months before "End of Forever" was released. I was so keeeeen on this new album that I managed to download every song on the album, however, I swore to myself that I wouldn't listen to the songs until I had bought the album. Soo many people offered to make the album for me but I declined. It's not the same effect as when you buy it, opposed to when it's burned. I felt as if the band needed me! haha okay, I'm a corndawg... =) This song is amazing..ahhh...it's everything...awww...I (heart) Kris A&F!! =)

    General Commentthis song means everything to me. I fell in love with my best friend and finally told him the night before he left for college, although I now know he feels the same and that he is everything I ever need, our relationships now consist of Hellos and Goodbyes. I love this song.
