“How do I say goodbye to what we had? The good times that made us laugh outweigh the bad. I thought
we'd get to see forever but forever's gone away, it's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. And I'll take with me
the memories to be my sunshine after the rain, it’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.”
