Goodbye Forever Lyrics

Did you say the thing you wanted?
Have you ever felt in love?
A moment where no problems would ever get you down
Free as an eagle but only for a day (yeah listen)

The final is a warning, wake up before you go
There'll be no second chances,...

    Follow the lyrics, to me it sounds like a simple, yet powerful message. Live your life, don't hesitate, if you find something you love, go after it. If you feel you need a change, make it happen. Live for what makes you happy, don't leave anything unfinished, because tomorrow may never come.

    I heard this song when I was going thru a gut wrenching break up and what I got from it the heart broken , deppressed , and any really down and out person should know their not alone there's lots of others just like us and it's ok..

    It seems to be a song about mental health. Have you experienced good things (love, the dawn), but it didn't last, which can be depressing. Don't hold on to that depression or you can go to a dark place. Make the effort to move the curtains and bring the light back in and allow arms that embrace to help ... or ... goodbye forever (lost in darkness).

    I believe there’s 2 messages- don’t turn your back on loved ones.. when you and they are gone.. it’s forever. Also to embrace life. We are put in a vessel ( ‘given a name’) and when gone are spirit still lives

    I think it's a description of the feeling of love and the general question about life. Live your life, don't hold up your dreams for anyone, when you find something or someone you love, you have to fight for it. If you feel that you need a change in your life then do it as soon as possible because tomorrow may never come. Live for what makes you happy, don't leave anything unfinished because you don't know what tomorrow will bring.

    Makes me think of my mother who suffered from depression after the passing of my father, and would try to hide from the world. She unfortunately passed away in a car crash. For some reason the chorus really cuts deep starting with “open the curtains”. For me the meaning is that she was able to feel and see the light and say goodbye to her pain forever.

    I think it is about breakup with a girl. You first feel free, But later you’ll feel alone and lost
