Goodbye Because I Love You

from by Elsewhere



Another of the slowed down songs, this progressive sounding tune tells the sad story of a man who understands his inability to be with the one he loves.


How can we move on from this?
when your future already exists
It's like holding back the waves
grasping at the whole ocean
If I could your indifference
to show you my love's competence
Because when your eyes fix on me
I beg God to take it seriously

Everyday lying under my gaze
Sirens singing calling me astray
my heart breaks inside of your smile
my love lives in exile

Now I'm writing goodbye

I've been weakened to a new fear
And you have to stay here
If it kills me I have to leave
Who could live to see you unhappy?

Goodbye, because it's not our time
Goodbye, because it's not our life
Goodbye, what else can I do?
Goodbye, because I love you
