"Goodbye" as written by and Richard Michael/deleo Patrick....
Yeah, I got this thinkin' in my head
Yeah, you wanna say the things not said

What's the reason?

Don't really care if you leave
Just wanna see you beaten
Don't really care if you grieve
Don't really need a reason

Hey, goodbye
I wish you stayed here
I wish you were here

Yeah, I got this feelin' in my veins
Yeah, a helpless feeling mixed with pain

What's the meaning?

I just can't believe
That you're not really with me
I just can't believe
I wonder if you'll miss me

Hey, goodbye
I wish you stayed here
I wish you were here

    General CommentI think it means that a friend/girlfriend is leaving and he's know and at first he was really going to miss her, but she changed and they became not as close. That's why he's saying goodbye for her. He misses her and likes the old her, but not the new one now that shes been gone and wants to get on with his life and see other people.

    General CommentI think it's about an attachment of some sort to somebody. Doesn't necessarily have to be about a girlfriend. (Just my ¢ .2

    General CommentIt's meant to be an open-ended song about loss in general. The first verse sounds more like a breakup and the second verse sounds more like a death or unintended separation. It's just an anthem for saying Goodbye. It's simple, to-the-point, and covers all bases.

    General CommentIt's definitely about kicking something to the curb. Open-ended just like others have said, but there's definitely this bitter-sweet vibe to it. Ultimately, the person moves on, but still wonders about if it/they stayed around in their life.

    And yeah, it sounds awesome. Heard this single on the radio one day and I knew I wanted more. I bought the album and glad I did. Worth every penny. Great mix of talent here. Hope they make it out to my area someday for a show. :)
