This song is about losing it, love.

Moving truck outside,
Off to Oklahoma
These walls we painted are getting painted over,
Scared I'll fall asleep,
Scared to say goodbye.
Who knows how long we'll make it last tonight.

Goodbye bear, I'm heading out the door,
I'm falling off the map,
I'm never coming home.
I'm sorry I couldn't ask you.
I couldn't offer you my life,
Now it's all in boxes,
but sometimes you have to let love die.


Lyrics submitted by MarkieP

Good bye bear song meanings

    General CommentThis is a great song. A lot of people haven't heard it for the fact that it's before the first song from the album. Just rewind the first track on a CD player and go to -1:20. One line from these lyrics is wrong though.
    Instead of it saying "I'd offer you my life," it says "I couldn't offer you my life,"

    General CommentThis song is about a relationship that gets too serious for the guy, and the girl wants him to propose. She wants to marry him, but he doesn't want to marry her, so he has to move out. "I couldn't offer you my life"
    Or at least that's what it seems like to me.

    General CommentTo me, this is what it means:

    First 2 lines- self explanatory. he's going to oklahoma

    Line 3- the walls represent the life they made together, and painting over is them mving on

    Lines 4, 5, and 6- he wants to make their last night together last

    Lines 7 and 8- he wont be seeing her again

    9,10- he's sorry that he couldn't commit

    11-his life is in boxes, he's moving

    12-he knows that committing would've been wrong when he wasnt ready
