A phrase said before someone says something very unfortunate. If a guy says this to a lady or vice versa, they might be about to do an unexpected breakup because one of them did something that the other person REALLY didn't like, or it could be used in any situation where bad news just needs to be given. For example, it could also be said when a big and exciting event is about to end or just before a very life-changing event that might possibly ruin the other guy's life forever.
Guy 1: I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the year that you really liked and wanted to last forever, 2014, is coming to a close in a few days! So sorry dude, but every single old thing has to come to an end!

Guy 2: Really? But I hope 2015 will also be awesome!
