'but baby, you know how to say goodbye
The thing I spent my whole life waiting for
has just walked out and locked the door'
These lines evoke Bob Dylan's saying goodbye song [It's All Over Now, Baby Blue] with its line "The lover who just walked out your door", and How To Say Goodbye could also be a reply to It's All Over Now, Baby Blue.
