"Goodbye" as written by and Linda/foster Thompson....
I can see the pain living in your eyes
And I know how hard you try
You deserve to have so much more
I can feel your heart and I sympathize
And I'll never criticize all you've ever meant to my life

I don't want to let you down
I don't want to lead you on
I don't want to hold you back
From where you might belong
You would never ask me why
My heart is so disguised
I just can't live a lie anymore
I would rather hurt myself
Than to ever make you cry
There's nothing left to say but good-bye
You deserve the chance at the kind of love
I'm not sure I'm worthy of
Losing you is painful to me


(Chorus) You would never ask me why
My heart is so disguised
I just can't live a lie anymore
I would rather hurt myself
Than to ever make you cry
There's nothing left to try
Though it's gonna hurt us both
There's no other way than to say good-bye

    General CommentI don't think that he's gay, because he says "Losing you is painful to me" I mean, if he's gay, he wouldn't feel pain for leaving her. I think he's in love with another girl, or maybe he's just confused. He wants to stop the lie, because he feels that he cannot give her the love that she gives him...
    I'm really not sure, but I think it would be the meaning
