We choose it, win or lose it
Love is never quite the same
I love you, now I've lost you
Don't feel bad, you're not to blame

So kiss me goodbye and I'll try not to cry
All the tears in the world won't change your mind
There's someone new and she's waiting for you
Soon your heart will be leaving me behind
Linger awhile, then I'll go with a smile
Like a friend who just happened to call
For the last time pretend your are mine
My darling, kiss me goodbye

I know now I must go now
Though my heart wants me to stay
That girl is your tomorrow
I belong to yesterday

So kiss me goodbye and I'll try not to cry
All the tears in the world won't change your mind
There's someone new and she's waiting for you
Soon your heart will be leaving me behind
Linger awhile, then I'll go with a smile
Like a friend who just happened to call
For the last time pretend your are mine
My darling, kiss me goodbye
My darling kiss me goodbye

    There is something disturbing enough about it to indicate that it's not about the new female creature of the 60's generation who has a trancendant approach to relationships. It feels sad and spooky. Therefore, i see a better fit with a mother and her son -or- a modernized mother church and a diminishing congregation; or even an old world pagan goddess saying goodbye to her former worshipers now that they have advanced/evolved away from her.
