When your life turns around 
Stares you right in the face 
And you lay on the ground 
Wonder off into space 
They laugh at your bad 
They take what they see 
But you are good enough for me 

So you run to the moon 
And you left us behind 
Was the world just too cruel
Were we just to unkind

I hope you remember 
I hope you are clear 
That you were good enough for me 
Yeah you were good enough for me 

You're learning how to fly away 
My beauty queen from yesterday 
And how's it feel to fall from grace 
'Cause I never had the chance to say 
That you were good enough, good enough for me 

If I can go back to the place 
There would time I must understood 
Even though it's complicated 
I can seem to overstate it, I think finally 
The moment should go 
Would you kiss me goodbye 

Wherever you go 
I hope you believe 
That you were good enough for me 
Yeah you were good enough for me 

I guess I wasn't very strong 
I should've told you I was wrong 
And I wish I had a second chance 
'Cause I really need to understand 

Why you had to fly away 
My beauty queen from yesterday 
And how's it feel to fall from grace 
I never had the chance to say 
That you were good enough, good enough 
For me
