I've got our love to remember
that will never change
I have you in my head
and no, I'll never hold you
and I'm still asking why
I guess that this is goodbye

My dreams suddenly seem so empty
I could go on my own, but I feel like playin' dead
and for what feels like the first time
I don't know where you are tonight
I guess that this is goodbye

We lived half our lives together
a hundred years is a lot of weight to bear
and the sun, it may be shining
there's an ocean in my eyes
cause I know that this is goodbye
cause I know that this.. is goodbye

    General CommentGuess I'll first comment, this is a song that Eddie apparently sang live some years back, and will see it's life for the first time as a studio track on the soundtrack to a Jack Johnson surfing documentary of some sort. Awesome!

    General Commentyeah i own the soundtrack...its a pretty good one at that

    well you said it was years ago Eddie played it live...cause it could be about his break up with his ex but that was recently...or it could be departing with a significant other through death either way its about him not seeing someone ever again

    General CommentWell, from what I know, he wrote these ukulele songs right around his divorce, but also after the accident at Roskilde, and I'd say this is about his divorce. Sad, sad, sad.

    May possibly mean the relationship with Beth as many noted. They met when they were around 20 and divorced in 2000 just around 40.
