You never leave someone
behind, you take a part of them with you and leave a part of yourself
I made the choice to finally
go because I cant stand this pain. Its time for my last
tear to fall and me to smile again. - Brandy
Being strong sometimes
means being able to let go.
As you left and said your
good-byes, you forgot to tell my heart how to live without you.
Good-byes make you think.
They make you realize what youve had, what youve lost and
what youve taken for granted.
How lucky I am to have
known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to.
I learned to laugh, I learned
to cry, but will I ever learn to say goodbye?
Ive learned that good-byes will always hurt, pictures can never
replace being there, memories forget the hard times, words can never
replace feelings, and heroes often go unsung.
Saying goodbye isnt
the hard part, its what we leave behind thats tough.
Why are the words goodbye,
Im sorry and I love you, so easily pronounced, but so hard to
Goodbye, I never wanna
see you again. Goodbye, I dont want to be your friend and theres
no need for me to stay and lose myself to you. And be abused by you.
I dont need the pain from your mind games. When you try them again,
I wont be there for them to work anymore. - Save Ferris
Sometimes you have to let
go of the one you love to find out if there is really something there.
Just before I go, dont
you offer any sweet advice because where were all your shoulders when
I needed them so long ago? And now with legs so weak and weary from
this silly dance, with a suitcase full of memories, I pack my bags and
slowly drift away. - Fuel
Sometimes you have to let
go of someone to see if theres anything there to hold on to.
Sometimes you wont
let go of love. More times love wont let go of you.
There is a time for departure
even when there is no certain place to go.
Maybe some people just
arent meant to be in our lives forever. Maybe some people are
just passing through. Its like some people just come through our
lives to bring us something: a gift, a blessing, a lesson we need to
learn, and thats why theyre here... youll have that
gift forever. - The Gift
Dont be dismayed
at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before we can meet again and meeting
again, after moments or a lifetime, is certain for those who are friends.
The loss of a friend is
like that of a limb. Time may heal the anguish of the wound, but the
loss cannot be repaired. - Robert Southey
Dont want to leave,
but we both know sometimes its better to go. Somehow I know well
meet again. Not sure quite where and I dont know just when. Youre
in my heart, so until then... wanna smile, wanna cry, saying good-bye.
- Muppets Take Manhattan
I dont want to wake up and realize what I was dreaming was right
in front of my shut eyes. I dont want to stop saying hellos for
fear of saying good-byes.
The clouds moved away, the rain stopped and the sun came pouring through.
I felt every piece of you inside of me leave and the depression was
gone, I'm finally free of you, I'm finally over you.
* I know as long as you
are happy, I can get through this. But it still kills me to see you
with her. Not because she is perfect for you, not because she makes
you smile, not because she is what you need, but because I know that
she deserves you more than I do. And that pain is indescribable.
* Sometimes the hardest
part of moving forward is not looking back.
* Liking is easy, loving
is difficult, and letting go is both.
* * When you love somebody
they become your life. When they don't want to be your life you have
to let them go. In order to do that you must love them more than ever
* It was stormy from the
start, you were raining in my heart, like a thousand tears of laughter
It was easy to ignore everything that came before in the hope of something
after... Will I find myself letting go of nothing, holding on to another
* Being in your arms I
felt complete...just being close to you made the hole in my heart disapear...not
that it wasn't enough that you loved me, but you taught me to love myself
again, you helped me realize what I had been missing for such a long
time, and I will be forever in debt to you for it.
* Its hard to say
good bye to all of then, but I know I will see some of them again. Maybe
not next year, in five years, or even ten, but I know that our paths
well pass again.
* I really think there's
a reason that I like him so much. Like something is telling me not to
let him go. Every time I follow my heart... it leads me to him. I mean...
what other explanation is there. Why is it that he is all I can think
about? Why is it that no matter how upset I am... I see him and I can't
help but smile? Why is it that when he smiles at me... I get that feeling
in my stomach? And even when he'd broken my heart, and hurt me as much
as anyone could ever hurt me... when he lied to me... and I hated him...
why then did I still feel those same feelings? Answer me that, and then
I'll tell you why I let him hurt me so much.
* I just wish I could roll
back the clocks to when things were the same...when we were all just
a bunch of crazy teenagers looking for a wild time. But now, things
aren't the same. Each of us have gone our different ways. We change,
people change, things just change, and we aren't those crazy teenagers
looking for a wild time anymore. We're teenagers looking for a person
to love and a person to hug when we're in need. And it's funny...when
I had my best friend by my side, I was dreaming of a person to love.
And now that I have that, I wish that my best friend would be back.
Be careful of those you lose when you choose to love.
* When you said goodbye
I felt so all alone. There were times at night I couldn't sleep, my
heart was much too weak to make it on my own. But baby, after all the
misery and pain you put me through, so unfair to me, boy, you're no
longer my world. And I ain't missin' you at all. * Don't really wanna
make it tough; I just wanna tell you that I had enough. Might sound
crazy, But it ain't no lie, Baby, bye, bye, bye.
* I loved you endlessly.
And you weren't there for me, so now its time for me to leave and make
* I'm sick and tired of
all of your lies. I'm sick and tired and I'm finally saying goodbye.
* I don't need this poison,
I don't need control, I don't need forgiveness, I don't need you at
* And its so hard to do
and so easy to say, but sometimes you just have to walk away.
* The longer I am away
from you, the more I realize I was never in love with you. I was only
in love with the idea of you.
* You've got to know when
its time to turn the page, when your cheeks are only wet because of
* This time I won't play
this game, I made a vow to make this change and I bow out, I won't be
hanging around baby. I decline to take the pain, and I resign from the
masquerade, and I bow out. I won't be staying around this time.
* You're just a stage I
* When you're left standing
on that stage all alone maybe you'll relies you should have learned
to be the man you should have been.
* I've come to know that
when I saw you, I should've ran away.
One minute its your fault,
the next minute mine, sometimes your ahead, and sometimes behind, One
minute I pray that things were like before, the next I think I'm thanking
god u walked out the door...Sometimes I miss you, sometimes I cry...but
I know I trust what happened...and cease from asking why...Sometimes
I regret setting you free... But deep inside I know it wasn't meant
I opened my heart to you. I can't just stand around like a fool, waiting
for you to be ready.
You know what I wish? I
wish that u were here with me forever. Don't worry, in my little illusion
of life, reality has to break through sometimes. I'll be ok.
I look at you now, and
I look then, and I'm glad we broke up cuz you ain't no ten!
I never thought I'd see
the day you no longer had control of me. But that day has come and its
here to stay. I don't need you anymore so go away.
I think letting you go
was the smartest decision I ever made. Even though I loved you so much,
I just couldn't deal with the pain. And the times we spent together,
holding each other, were the best times of my life. But no matter how
much I wanted to keep you in my arms, I couldn't. I couldn't hold on
to you, knowing that all you were going to do was hurt me. But right
now, even though I still love you, I don't need you anymore. I don't
need you to complete me. I just need you to comfort me when I'm sad,
support me, and listen to me when I talk. So I guess what I'm saying
is, I'm glad we're over. I'm glad I've let go.
To far apart to reach the
distance, but something keeps me hanging on. Pretending not to know
the difference denying what we had is gone. I wasted my time and waited
for you, trust me it won't happen again.
I'm leaving, last chance,
then never again.
For once I'm standing up
and making you decide because I refuse to wait this time.
You think I'll always care
what a surprise it might be if you turned around and I just wasn't there.
Missing you could turn
from pain to pleasure if I knew you were missing me too.
No matter how long I wait
for you my wishes will never come true, so the only thing left that
I can do is to hold in my tears and forget about you.
I'm fighting so hard to
hang on, when my heart is fighting so hard to let go.
I loved you, its not that
I fell out of love because that is impossible...I just couldn't handle
the heartache anymore...its not that I don't love you...It's that I
What can I say? You're
going away. I can't say I'll see you tomorrow, for there will be many
days to follow of loneliness and pain, but today I'll leave you with
I love you, and I will miss you.
I can't hold on to the
past forever. So I guess this is it. Goodbye. Life expects me to turn
my back and walk away now; to walk away from everything; to walk away
from the future I imagined, from the emotions I felt, from you.
I lived for you and me,
And now Ive really come to see, that life would be much better
once youre gone. I know that I cant take no more, it aint
no lie, I wanna see you out that door, Baby, bye, bye, bye.
I'm not gonna give in,
I'm not gonna fall. I'm not gonna be here whenever it is you finally
call. This time it's over, I'm keeping my heart. I'm gonna be strong
and not fall apart. It will get better, I'll no longer cry. In a couple
of weeks, I won't want to die. I won't want to go back. I'll be able
to sleep. It won't hurt so badly, and it won't strike so deep. I'm convincing
myself; yes I'll find someone new. I won't be alone, and I won't be
with you. Your waiting for me to crawl back to your side, but it is
won't happen, not this time. I'm keeping my pride. So good-bye forever.
I'll be on my way, It's gonna take time. But I'll be okay.
As I watch you walk down
the isle at Graduation I will be crying tears of joy, because you have
finally made it and I am so proud of you. The second tears will be of
sadness, for I know each step you take is one that will take you farther
away from me.
Who knows how long this will last? Now we've come so far so fast. Somewhere
back there in the dust that same small town is in each of us.
* It would be hard to say
what my life would be like unattached to this particular experience.
* Try not to think about what might've been, Cause that was then, and
we have taken different roads.
* We can't go back again.
There's no use giving in. There's no way to know what might've been.
* And its so hard to do
and so easy to say, but sometimes you just have to walk away.
* Why bother? It's gonna hurt me, it's gonna kill when you desert me.
This happened to me twice before, won't happen to me any more.... I've
known a lot of guys before, what's the harm in knowing one more?
Maybe we could even get together; maybe you could break my heart again
* All I'm saying is, I
want to look back and say that I did the best I could while I was stuck
in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this
place and played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place.
* And its times like this
that I dread... when there's everything to say, and nothing left to
be said. And it makes me sad.
* The funniest thing was,
even though we were as close as ever, we were the farthest we've ever
* The thing is, we'd come so far. And now we'd lost each other...maybe
* I can't eat, I can't
sleep, and sometimes I find it hard to breathe, I break down and cry
not knowing why, and now I can't lie. I'm standing on the edge of good-bye.
* Its not that one day
you will turn around and realize what you lost...you turn around a lot...and
I'm always here in the shadows of your love...but one day I might shock
you...I might leave...only I wont turn around to see if you're waiting
* Don't cry for what might
of been, don't live in the past. It was supposed to be forever, well
forever never lasts. Lift your head and dry your tears, forget yesterday.
We had the time of our life, but we must move on. Let it fade away...
* It takes a lot to hate
you, It takes too much to forget you, but it took so little to love
* I'm sorry, I could've
done better. Congratulations to those of you who did.
* Just because something
ends doesn't mean it never should have been.
* People come and go, but
memories live on forever.
* What can I say? You're
going away. I can' say I'll see you tomorrow for there will be many
days to follow of loneliness and tears. I know someday we'll meet again.
I know that this is not the end. I have so much I need to say, but today
I will leave you with I will miss you, and I love you.
* I never thought saying
two words would be so hard. I said them a thousand times, but it has
never ever been so hard. That night as we stood in my drive way I didn't
want the night to end... I knew those words were coming but I didn't
wanna hear them. You said them then I said them too. I turned and walked
away, tears in my eyes I will never forget that I night I had to say
* I don't want to live
the rest of my life thinking about you and dreaming of what might have
been if we would have stayed together in spite of the miles that separate
us...I can't live my life happily knowing you're with someone else.
That would kill a part of me. What we have is rare. It's too beautiful
to just throw it away...I don't want it to end this way. I don't want
it to end at all...I can't force you to stay with me. But no matter
what happens in my life, I'll never forget my time with you.
* Did this happen for a reason, you being taken from me? Maybe we will
be stronger, we'll just have to wait and see.
* You may forget the friends
you laughed with but you will never forget the ones you cried with.
* When all you want to
do is hold on forever...but you let go, smile and walk away. Then cry
all the way home because you know it will never be the same...because
try as you might you can't make someone love you, sometimes you have
to let them be free...and letting go, that is when love hurts the most
* It's easy to get over
someone when you realize they're making your life a living hell. It's
easy to let go when hanging on hurts so bad.
*Thanks for forgetting
me after everything, you taught me a good lesson, never trust boys...
