Listen to this farewell song:
This was the final song on the last album Mane Attraction before White Lion disbanded in 1991.
The song is a glam metal ballad, saying a fond farewell to the experiences on the road:
"Well it's time to say goodbye my friend,
I'm glad you stayed until the end,
I hope that you've enjoyed the time we spent,
Though I know that I will be back again,
I don't know just how soon my friend,
Until we meet again just think of me,
I'll think of you".

Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
Slow tempo glam metal ballad. A love song about wanting to stay together. Often used as a closing dance to high school proms, this is a song about bittersweet endings and not wanting to let go:
"Never say goodbye, never say goodbye,
You and me and my old friends,
Hoping it would never end,
Say goodbye, never say goodbye,
Holdin' on - we got to try,
Holdin' on to never say goodbye".
Closing Time by Semisonic
Rock ballad with mid-tempo piano intro. Starts similar to Green Day "Good Riddance" with more energetic heavy guitar sounds for most of the song.
Accepting the paths that life takes us on - that leaving is a fact of life:
Open all the doors and let you out into the world."
Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) - Green Day
Strong vocals with this pop ballad from punk band Green Day.
Saying goodbye: "For what it's worth it was worth all the while", which is bittersweet.
