"Say Goodbye" as written by Norah Jones and Brian Burton....
Bring me back the good old days,
When you let me misbehave
Always knew, it wouldn't last,
But if you ask, I'd go again
Yeah, I'd go again

It's alright, it's okay,
I don't need you anyway
You don't have to tell the truth,
'Cause if you do I'll tell it too
Oh, I'll tell it too

Well, it ain't easy to stay in love
If you can't tell lies,
So I'll just have to take a bow
And say goodbye

I'm loosened up, but it's too late to turn it around
I'm dropping bolts on the ground and I'm coming unwound

Don't you miss the good old days,
When I let you misbehave?
Why you're looking down like that?
I know that you dying to come back,
Please come on back

Well, it ain't easy to stay in love
When you're telling lies,
So I'll just have to take a bow
And say goodbye

    General CommentFor me this song is about having an affair. Knowing it's wrong and it couldn't last, but still the aching of it being over... And the longing.

    Especially the first strophe catches it perfectly.

    Lyric CorrectionBring me back the good old days,
    When you let me misbehave.
