Analysis of Goodbye.
Don't tell me you love me
If you're telling her that, too.
Your words don't mean a thing
Unless they are true.
You can't play me,
But know that I will play you.
It's such a shame
You tried to play that game.
You're not as outlandish as you think.
I see right through you.
I'm the best thing that has ever happened to you.
I am also your worst nightmare.
I'll hurt you more than you've ever hurt me.
You are dead to me.
