"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

    MemoryThe lyric describes exact the same situation to me. I was painful when say goodbye to her but I know it's better for both of us when she said that my love for her and her love for me are not enough. She always feels like missing of emotion. I don't know why but at the end, I accept this. We broke in peaceful, without any conflict and arguments but tears... It really hurts me. To me she is the best, I love her but it seems love just not enough. I hope this make her happier, so at least I feel some thing positive in this break.

    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 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
