How Lyrics Should Be Sung: Last Goodbye

This song needs special directions in particular in order to emulate the heartbreaking emotional power of Jeff Buckley’s singing. Enjoy!

Original Version:

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.

Well, this is our last embrace,
Must I dream and always see your face?
Why can’t we overcome this wall?
Baby, 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.
Oh, 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.

Intended Version:

This is our laaast goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us diiie.
But it’s ooover
Just hear this and then I’ll go:
You gave me mmore to live for,
More than you’ll eeeeever know.

Ewwweeeehh, this is our last embraaaaace,
Muuust I dreeeeheam and alwaaaays see your faaaaace?
Why can’t we overcome this waaaah?
Baby, maybe it’s just because I didn’t knooow you at aaaaah.

KIIIISS me, PLEEEEEASE kiss me,
B’kiss me out of desire, BABE’AN not consolation.
OOOHH, Y’KNOW IT MAKES ME SOOO AAANGRY ‘CAUSE I KNOOOW that in time

OOOOOOOOOOWEEEWEEEEEWEEEEWEEEEEENOOOONOOOOONOOOOOOONUUUUUUU

Did you say, “NOOOOOO, THIS CAN’T HAAAAAAAPPEN TO MEEHEEEEE”?
AND DID YOU RUSH TO THE PHOOHOOONE TO CAAARLLLLL did you rush to the phone to call?
WAS THERE A VOICE UNKUUUUURND IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIIIRND saying,
