"Goodbye" as written by Casey Marshall, Matt Walst, Chad Kroeger and Joey Moi....
She's yelling on the phone, she's yelling on the phone again.
And she's banging on the door; she's losing all control again.
What's she doing in the tub?
She's shooting up the junk again.
And all the water in the stream couldn't ever wash her clean, in my head.
And I'm leaving

Demon with the needles leaning over your shoulder.
It's over.
I pictured this differently.
I cast us in perfect light.
I'd trade an eternity, for what's been taken away.
(Feels like) the future for you and me, (our lives)fades in the failing light,
(This time) you drowned us in misery, (that's why) you forced me to say

Goodbye, my love, so long, you've thrown us away.

It's been going on for months, said she'd only done it once with friends.
I couldn't keep her clean at all, every dealer that she called was a friend.
Believe it.

Demon with the needles leaning over your shoulder.
It's over.

I pictured this differently.
I cast us in perfect light.
I'd trade an eternity, for what's been taken away.
(Feels like) the future for you and me, (our lives) fades in the failing light,
(This time) you drowned us in misery, (that's why) you forced me to say

Goodbye, my love, so long, you've thrown us away.
Goodbye, my love, so long, you've thrown us away.

I remember how it worked, back when we were both in love again, made-up memories.
They were few and far between, no it wasn't meant to be from then.

Been stuck inside a dream, woke up and I could breathe the air.
Been down this road before I'll make it on my own I swear.

(Feels like) I pictured this differently, (our lives) I cast us in perfect light,
(This time) I'd trade an eternity, (that's why) you fucking forced me to say

Goodbye, (I'm saving her), my love, (I wave to her)
(So long), you've thrown us away
Goodbye, (I'm saving her), my love, (I wave to her)
(So long), you've thrown us away

    My Interpretationi believe this is about a man's girlfriend who is a drug addict. he desperately wants her to become clean, but she wont, so he decides to move on.

    My InterpretationI personally think this this song is about his girlfriend being a heroin addict.

    "She's yelling on the phone, she's yelling on the phone again.
    And she's banging on the door; she's losing all control again"
    ^Violent need for the drug

    "What's she's doing in the tub?
    She's shooting up the junk again."
    ^injecting heroin

    "Demon with the needles leaning over your shoulder"
    ^her dealer controls her and her addictive need for the drug.
