Mm, bye bye

How do you love someone
That hurts you, oh, so bad
With intentions good?
Was all he ever had

Well, how do I let go when I've loved him for so long
And I've given him all that I could?

Maybe love is a hopeless crime
Giving up what seems your lifetime
What went wrong with something once so good?

How do you find the words to say
To say, to say (to say goodbye) goodbye
(Find the words to say goodbye)
When your heart don't have the heart to say
To say, to say (to say goodbye) goodbye
(Find the words to say goodbye)

I know now I was naive
Never knew where this would lead, yeah
And I'm not tryin' to take away, oh no
From the good man that he is

Well, how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could?

Was it something wrong that we did?
Or 'cause others infiltrated?
What went wrong with something once so good?

How do you find the words to say
To say, to say (to say goodbye) goodbye
(Find the words to say goodbye)
When your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye
Find the words to say goodbye)

Is this the end? Are you sure?
How should you know
When you've never been here before?
It's so hard to just let go
And this is the one and only love I've ever known, so

(How do you find the words to say, to say goodbye
When your heart don't have the heart to say
When your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye
Find the words to say goodbye)

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
