... from the viewpoint of the song's narrator, but is it that of the author?

The Goodbye's seem wistful and sad, rather than a moving-on to new things. We're left wondering 'why the goodbyes?'... the only clue seemed to be the line 'Goodbye to glue that stuck me to you'. But it didn't have the tragedy of a breakup song.

Perhaps it's too easy to look for meanings, but that's the problem with any song that hints at sadness.

Good luck...

Oh these are certainly my goodbyes, but they are to a previous time, not to a person…

Thank you so much for pledging your support! Please write me to claim your ticket to the show if you live in London!
