I have listened to the song "Goodbye" by Avril Lavigne, where I noticed the phrase what has come.

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye my love

I can't hide, can't hide, can't hide what has come

What is the actual meaning of the given sentence in this context?

    Can you give us the context in which the sentence appears? – Great Crosby Jan 29 '16 at 18:07
  • I think it means "What has happened". – Khan Jan 30 '16 at 4:37
  • @GreatCrosby the complete sentence is "Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye my love I can't hide, can't hide, can't hide what has come " – Girish Kumar Jan 30 '16 at 8:31
  • Thank you. I don't feel 100% confident but think, like Khan, it means what has happened. And it's love that has happened. – Great Crosby Jan 30 '16 at 19:41

In that context, it means "what has happened".

The use of the verb "to come", in the absence of other modifiers, also implies that what has happened had an influence on the first person, singular or plural (i.e. to me or to us).
