"Goodbye" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Goodbye
I don't wanna
Feel the need
To hear your voice

Goodbye
I don't wanna
Feel the need
To see your face

I can't live with
All these things I would say
I can't live with
All these things that I say

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

With some time
I might wanna
See the way
That you changed

With some time
I might wanna
See how you've been
What you cannot blame

I can't stand it
All these things I forego
I can't stand it
All these things I've let go

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

You could have told me
Goodbye
You could have told me
Goodbye

You let me try
Knowing there was nothing I could do
To change you

You could have warned me
Knowing there was nothing I could do
To change you

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

    General CommentWhy has nobody commented on this yet?? It's BRILLIANT, I tell you!! ;-D.. Too bad the only version I've got is of such a low quality.. Im pretty sure they've never done a studio version of this? Am I right?

    Anyways... I have no good suggestions as to what it means.. Pretty cryptic. It's about either a friendship or a relationship gone sour, I suppose.. Possibly the latter. Secrets have been exposed, and they're breaking apart.

    And obviously, Tee/Ess (Dunno who of 'em wrote this) is moving on. The "She's found a place to stay, and she invites me in" part, might refer to her flirting with some other girl, leaving her past lover behind. Or something like that. Feel free to object.. :)
