Beautiful Goodbye Lyrics

I count the ways I let you down
All my fingers and toes but I'm running out
Clever words can't help me now
I grip you tight but you're slipping out

And I remember your eyes were so bright
When I first met you, so in love that night

    I think this is about a guy who is so sorry for the things he had done to the girl who used to love him dearly. Although the guy still wants the girl, he can no longer have her because he already gave her too much pain to remember. And all he can do is to bid her goodbye.

    It feels like the boy was about to die from some kind of sickness where he was saying goodbye to someone precious to him :3

    It's pretty simple , a guy has hurt this girl many times and it pretty much changed her . So he's saying goodbye to her because he can't do that to her anymore because he cares about her.

    In the beginning of the song he starts thinking about all the ways he let his ex down. He's messed up a lot. She loved him in the beginning but she let him go eventually. He doesn't know when she started to lose feelings for him. She tells him goodbye with tears, and he tells her she's even beautiful when she cries. He tells her not to hold back because it won't help. He's even tried to. He knows nothing he says will change the fact that it's over.

    In my mind my dad thinks he's let me down but I'm never gonna give up and he should not give up neither will i. My father means the world to me. we did get knocked off by a bad evil power disguised as a woman who set our lives to be ruined and he can't be saved because i was supposed to go to college and have the world but i guess everything is meant for a reason cause i found the man of my dreams now my eyes are brighter and not gloomy like they were when i stayed with my father and his wife. My brother and sister have become something great by trying to serve their country my stepbrother is average could be better but he is a good dad. but i have shed many tears and pain . dads hanging in. he hates when i cried around him i guess that's why he had to let me go and find myself i kept slipping when i was around them. i am the oddball. but i found great love that i would not change for all the stars in the universe. i believe I'm created for greatness.

    I think the song is about a relationship that's coming to an end. Adam (the lead singer) is talking about how he knows the relationship is going to end and he's thinking about the feelings and events that happened when they first met. He's talking about how beautiful she is, how beautiful their first encounter is, and now he's saying it going to be a beautiful goodbye.
