Lyric discussion by DCBA25 

Come on I can't believe no one has commented this amazing song! I've been playing it nonstop on my guitar since I learned it as well. There's no hidden meaning really behind these lyrics, a guy who doesnt want to be with his girlfriend anymore, but does not want to break up with her to her face, so he writes a letter and wants his friend to give it to her on his behalf. Nowadays, it's too easy to dump people, I know this well, having been dumped by a girl from a 3 year relationship through a cell phone text.

Is it you don't want to see her cry, is that why you won't go and say goodbye?
