"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 Commentit's about a guy realizing that she is meant for someone bigger than his stature .. he is in love with and even she's in love with him .. but he knows he will only be pulling her down with his low life .. he is taking the harder decision of breaking up .. he wishes her better.. and may be this will justify the song too..
    they are in love .. the girl's been just perfect while he might have had not been as faithfull.. now he regrets that he betrayed her and has ultimately found himself to be the lowest of the creature and cant imagine how someone perfect as her should get stuck with this lowly creature.. so he's freeing her.. now that's love.. to let her go for her betterment..and taking the blame
