This is goodbye

I regret the time spent together
I can't digest all the life that I've wasted
But holding on made me never want to hold another

You are just a part of my past
You are just a part of my past

This is an overdue goodbye
I farewell I must stay
This is an overdue goodbye
This is the end
This is the ballad of a broken man
This is goodbye
This is the ballad of a broken man
This is goodbye
This is goodbye

I spit these words down your throat
You will hear what I have to say
A mouthful of hope I hope you choke
You will hear what I have to say
There's nothing left in me
You have sucked it out as you took me in
An empty, worthless man is all you left in your wake

You are just a part of my past
You are just a part of my past

This is an overdue goodbye
I farewell I must stay
This is an overdue goodbye
This is the end

This is the ballad of a broken man
This is goodbye
This is the ballad of a broken man
This is goodbye

This is the ballad of a broken man
This is the ballad of a broken man
This is goodbye

    As far as i understand this song is about going through a breakup. He feels he was used, and will have trust issues later on. But he has decided he must move on.

    Its the final goodbye. The one that only happens when a person is done. To the person who ruined what was supposed to be a good time in life. And made a change in your life.

    To me, this song means after this specific guy falls in love, he got broken to some painful reason that made him never want to fall in love again.
