Song to Say Goodbye


About Song to Say Goodbye

"Song to Say Goodbye" is a song by English Alternative rock band Placebo from their fifth studio album, Meds (2006). It was released on 6 March 2006 as the album's second single. It was written by Steve Hewitt, Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal, and produced by Dimitri Tikovoi. The first single, "Because I Want You" was only released in the United Kingdom, so elsewhere, "Song to Say Goodbye" is considered the first single from Meds. The song develops around piano notes that repeat throughout it. The song deals with heroin addiction and its influence on the relationships of the parties involved. There is a live version available of the song on the live EP Live at La Cigale. The cover art features a blurred picture of vocalist Brian Molko. 


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

You are one of god's mistakes.
You crying, tragic waste of skin.
I'm well aware of how it aches.
And you still won't let me in.
Now I'm breaking down your door,
To try and save your swollen face.
Though I don't like you anymore
You lying, trying waste of space.

My oh my.
A song to say goodbye.
A song to say goodbye
A song to say goodbye,
A song to say,
Before our innocence was lost
You were always one of those blessed with lucky sevens,
And the voice that made me cry.

You were Mother Nature's son.
Someone to whom I could relate.
Your needle and your damage done,
Remains a sordid twist of fate,
Now I'm trying to wake you up,
To pull you from the liquid sky.
Cause if I don't we'll both end up with just your songs that say goodbye.

My oh my.
A song to say goodbye,
A song to say goodbye,
A song to say,
Before our innocence was lost you were always one of those blessed with lucky sevens,
And a voice that made me cry.
It's a song to say goodbye

Placebo are an English alternative rock band from London. They were formed in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist/bassist Stefan Olsdal. The band was soon joined by drummer Robert Schultzberg, who was later replaced by Steve Hewitt after conflicts with Molko. Hewitt left the band in October 2007 and was replaced by Steve Forrest in 2008. Placebo are known for their androgynous image and angst-fueled musical content. To date, they have released six studio albums, all of which have reached the top 20 in the UK, and have sold over ten million records worldwide. more »
