It takes everything within me to not scream
your name after every breath.
I wonder what you'd think if you knew that's
how I really felt.

I often wonder what's really going on inside
that heart of yours, but I never ask.
I'm too afraid and nervous to know if my
guesses ring true.

And I guess I'll never know, cause I'm leaving
I'm not taking you with me, either.

I'm keeping you here; this is goodbye.
Hey, this is my only shot at ever really letting
go of you.

So take a piece of my heart if it'll keep you
satisfied for awhile; better yet, I'll give you
the whole thing to break in half.

I don't really mind the pain anymore; it's
almost turned into a complete numbness.
Sure, I feel hopeless without you, but what's
a couple thousand miles gonna change?

So here's to goodbye; here's to giving up.
This is my last attempt at letting go of you.
