Last Goodbye

by: Jeff Buckley

This is our last goodbye,
I hate to feel the love between us die,
but it's over.
Just hear this and then I'll go.
You gave me more to live for,
More than you'll ever know.

This is our last embrace.
Must I dream and always see your face?
Why can't we overcome this wall?
Well, maybe it's just because I didn't know you at all.

Kiss me, please kiss me.
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation.
You know it makes me so angry 'cause I know that in time,
I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye.

Did you say "No, this can't happen to me,"
and did you rush to the phone to call?
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind?
Saying maybe you didn't know him at all,
You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know.

Well, the bells out in the church tower chime,
burning clues into this heart of mine.
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories,
offer signs that it's over ... it's over.

That is my favorite part of the song. Love it.

Yep, he definitely rocked. Damn shame he drowned in the Mississippi.
