For people who believe in "The Secret" you would say that this song was a self-fulfilling prophecy. For others you might just say it was a self-fulfilling prophecy. The song started out with the idea of telling a story that would take place in the future. The outcome was that the story did happen, at least in some way, in real life. The real-life details may differ from what ultimately made the final cut, but the story arc is the same.


You broke down last november,
I was out of lies with nothing to say.
You thought you knew in September,
Lying to yourself since May.
You left me on a Tuesday.
You packed your things and you ran.
You asked me for a reason, I told you "I'm a backdoor man."

Hello, Goodbye

You let your hair grow down to your shoulders, you changed the way you dressed and you walked.
You got real righteous about your cause, I even hear it when you sleeptalk.
You told your brother and your father, your mother thought it was lies.
I nearly called you late last night, but didn't think it'd be wise.

Hello, Goodbye

Last time that I saw you, I told you how sorry I was.
There's no way to go back now. We couldn't live with no trust.
Long way around the story, I wouldn't change it if I could.
Just because we can now, doesn't mean that we should

Hello, Goodbye.
