"Goodbye" as written by and Martin Gore....
It was you that stripped my soul
And threw it in the fire
And tamed it in the rapture
And filled me with desire

Now I'm pure
Now I'm clean
I feel good and serene
In you

There is no denying
How I have been changed
You won't hear me crying
Now misery is strange

I can dream
I can fly
Now it seems I get by
With you

Goodbye, yeah
Goodbye, again

I was always looking
Looking for someone
Someone to stick my hook in
And pull it out and run

Now I'm caught on your line
All my thoughts are entwined
In you

Goodbye, yeah
Goodbye, again

If you see me walking
Through the golden gates
Then turn around stop talking
Stop and hesitate
I'll be waiting up there
With my fate in the air
For you

    My InterpretationHe sees his (love-searching) soul as a wild beast that's finally been tamed and turned into a domestic animal. But to whom is the "goodbye" addressed? To his old ways? Or has he decided that he cannot bear such captivity and has to break free?
