"Goodbye" as written by Gavin Richard Harrison and Ricardo A. Byer....
I remember holdin' on to you,
All them long and lonely nights I put you through
Somewhere in there, I'm sure I made you cry,
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

But I recall, all of them nights down in Mexico
One place I may never go in my life again
Was I just off somewhere or just too high?
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

I only miss you every now and then,
Like the soft breeze blowin' up from the Caribbean
Most Novembers I break down and cry,
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

But I recall all of them nights down in Mexico,
That's one place I'll never go in my life again
Awh was I just off somewhere or just too high?
But I can't remember if we said goodbye
No I can't remember if we said goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

    General CommentAnother one of the best songs without a comment on here.

    On the surface it's a simple break-up song...with Steve admitting he was so high at the time he broke up with his wife that he can't even remember how it all went down.

    But, I also feel like the subject that he did not say "goodbye" to could have been the drugs in general. For a while drugs were the only thing that he could turn to..he was an addict, and after he was arrested he was forced to "break-up" with them. He was so high at the time of his lowest low that he can't even remember who he sobered up.
