This is got to be the saddest day of my life
I call you here today for a bit of bad news
I won't be able to see you anymore
Because of my obligations and the ties that you have

We've being meeting here everyday
And since this is our last day together
I wanna hold you
Just one more time

When you turn and walk away
Don't look back
I wanna remember you, just like this
Let's just kiss and say goodbye

I have to meet you here today
There's just so many things to say
Please don't stop me 'til I'm through
This is something I hate to do

We've being meeting here so long
I guess what we've done, all was wrong
Please darling, don't you cry
Let's just kiss and say goodbye

Many months have passed us by
I'm gonna miss you, I can't lie
(I'm gonna miss you)
I've got ties and so do you
(I'm gonna miss you)
I just think this is the thing to do

It's gonna hurt me, I can't lie
Maybe you'll meet, you'll meet another guy
Understand me, won't you try, try, try, try, try, try, try
Let's just kiss and say goodbye

I'm gonna miss you, I can't lie
(I'm gonna miss you)
Understand me, won't you try
(I'm gonna miss you)
It's gonna hurt me, I can't lie
(I'm gonna miss you)

    I understand the song talks about a couple that is having an affair - both of them have other (and previous) relationships. This is the moment when the man decides they can't go on with this situation and brakes up with whatever they have.
