50 Ways to Say Goodbye Lyrics

My heart was paralyzed
My head was over-sized
I'll take the high road like I should
You said, "It's meant to be.
That it's not you it's me."

    I think he was going to break up with his girlfriend (the line that goes "She'll think I'm Superman, not Super-Minivan") and he's embarrassed that his girlfriend got to it first. He obviously complained to his friends that she was a bad girlfriend and doesn't want them to know that he was such a bad boyfriend that he deserved a breakup ("I returned everything I ever bought her." How does that mean she died? It doesn't, it means he broke up with her). He's also saying she died, like all "Her? Break up with ME? Never! I broke up with HER! She died! etc."

    Since the song is called 50 ways to say goodbye, I guess that does mean that his girlfriend left him, but he doesn't want to be embarassed, so he covers it up by saying she died.
