Song To Say Goodbye Lyrics - Placebo

Review The Song (37)

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..

Before our innocence was lost,
You were always one of those ,
Blessed with lucky sevens ,
And the voice that made me cry .
My Oh My.

You were mother nature's son ,
Someone to whom I could relate ,
Your needle and your damage done,
sponsored links
Remains a sordid twist of fate.
Now I'm trying to wake you up ,
To pull you from the liquid sky ,
Coz if I don't we'll both end up ,
With just your song to 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 the voice that made me cry.

It's a song to say goodbye(x8)

I think this is about someone with a personality disorder. | Reviewer: Violette | 7/13/13

Over my life, I have known over a dozen people like the one described as being saved in this song and they all had one thing in common: they all had borderline personality disorder or some other personality disorder. The drugs usually end up as the icing on a shit cake.

just something | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/11/11

helo, one who's reading this... I've read some things and I feel like I also must write something...

And I'll write it to nick.
(You're questening yourself if you're "the" nick where I'm talking to, but just for how I wrote this you'll know if youre the nick or not..:P)
I still love you, placebo made me think of you... A few days ago I saw you again, and it was one of the most crappiest moments of my life... I felt you... And I promised myself that I would'nt ever see you again,... that I would forget you...
But if the little change exists that you will read this,.. I'll be honest to you...
I still love you, I think of you almost every day.., I want to be with you... I want you back... I'm empthy because I mis you... And its been months ago that you broke up with me, final. I should get back on with my own life,... Because there's a big change that youre happy that youre without me.. But it does'nt matter what you think of me, who I am.. it doesnt matter how much you hate me..... I love you.
With all my heart.... And if theres a stupid change that youll read this and you love me too... very much...?? than: I BELONG TO YOU.
Come back to me, everything is gonna be oke...
And if you "hate" me, dont love me whatever,,.... than still I really love you... I hope youll get the best life... If I could I would kill myself to give you a hapy life...... goodbye:(

Actually I don't want to say good bye yet | Reviewer: Saw Lar Moo Say | 6/19/11

Hey, Sister Anita: I feel something and I don't know how to tell what am I feel. Because I know by myself that I will miss you when you move to different state. Here now we are Burmese refugees and we came through to the United States by position of our life. when we are being in to Grand Rapids Michigan and we were very good luck to meet you here, because you are the one very help full to us. what ever we need you filling it for us. But now you need to leave us because of charities, we have to say good by to you.

my review | Reviewer: ashtrayheart | 8/25/10

I think that this song is actually a conflict between two parts of the same person: the inner child is trying to save the adult from their problems, and it kinda hates the person it became, but is still trying to help them. great song

A liquid sky... | Reviewer: Belladonna | 5/23/10

I love this song. I watched the sunrise listening to this song and it blew me away, as if it were the first time I ever heard it.
It made me think a lot and sift through the shit that's going on in my life at the moment. Just for that, I suppose I'm in debt to this song.


Child with depressive father | Reviewer: Baca | 1/20/10

This song made me feel so sad. I had immediately related it to the story of a friend who had a father that killed himself when she was younger. He was depressive and she was understanding him so much and tried to make him enjoy live as much as possible. She became the "adult" in her relation with him. She felt like she was "in charge" of him. Trying to have fun with him, etc.. (just like the young boy in the video). But at the end it became so heavy, she had to "let him go" in order to protect herself. HE finally killed himself... She is now still learning how to live her "childhood". HAve fun, think of herself a bit and learn to take the "luxury" of Relying on others sometime too.

I won't say goodbye just yet. | Reviewer: Ruben | 1/3/10

I read the stories of the people that had their hearts broken, and felt their pain. Both a lost love and a lost friend hurt.

I like to think he wrote this for himself, saying goodbye to his old self. His old self that couldn't go on any further. He started over, a brand new start. As an innocent child. But is he that innocent? He still takes care of his old self, as he slowly says goodbye.

In the end though, he doesn't drive the car himself anymore. I think this means he found someone else to fall back on. Someone that even may have helped him with his new start, someone he couldn't have done without.

My friend showed me this song, telling me he'd like it to be played on his funeral. I saw Placebo at Rock Werchter. It was the first time I saw them, and they touched my heart. May it take a long while before I hear this song at someone's funeral.

A song to say goodby | Reviewer: emanuel from Argentina | 11/5/09

i dont know if anybody is goint to read this, but i have listen to this song for hours today and yesterday. I Broke up with mi gfriend, i love her very much, but i ve cheating myself for hope, tha someday everything would change. Im a very difficult person, i tend to get depressed, she understand me a lot, but i realized though i love her very much, she is no te love of my life, i was so selfish because i know this from very much... we´ve been dating for almost two years... but in the end... i beg God for forgiveness, beacuse she such a kind and beautiful person...
Im afraid, now that im alone again..

i think the real meaning... | Reviewer: RocketBrother | 11/4/09

i heard somewhere that Brian wrote this song to himself, and when you hear it that way it gets a lot of sense. It's a song to the self, to the inner child and to the lost of the innocence. and that makes it my favorite song on the etire album!

pd. sorry for my poor english :p

my analysis | Reviewer: anna | 10/21/09

see first i thought it was just a friend (the child, will refer to him as figure 1) who is helping the man (figure 2) a drug addict. (im thinking heroine it speaks of a needle)
figure 1 no longer likes figure b as drugs have changed him, its not the same person, he wants his friend back but realises hes lost forever and helps him then gets him help.

but then realsied the song sounds as if figure a has been through the same problem,(read first verse) and figure b helped them out and knew what happened, so now figure a is furious figure b is doing it and wont let him help. but i thought figure a is played by a hcild to portray innocence? so howd that work?

NOW I THINK...figure a DIED. 'Cause if I don't we'll both end up with just your songs that say goodbye. '...he died of it, child=ghost, furious with figure b who saw what happened to him but yet has chosen same path and wont snap out of it?

not sure, confusing but so deep.

message for alejandra... | Reviewer: gottfried | 6/19/09

maybe you are aleksandra silka from poland (katowice)??? if so, i am sorry for you. if not - i am also sorry for you and forget about it.

but if you are the one I suppose to know (my ex-girlfriend) then I have a special message for you: maybe you have also broken someone else heart? love is cruel, you know - and it is a disease... abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is... nothing happens without a reason.

... | Reviewer: dulle | 5/30/09

alejandra, i know what are you going through. Same thing happend to me. My gf became so selfish... and so mean (to me especialy)... for no reason at all... we got back together... and it was even worst... now we broke up again. She was the voice that made me cry... But no anymore coz that's not her. My love would never make me feel bad. She's just self centered bitch now...

i guess this one reminds me to you | Reviewer: alejandra | 4/30/09

gosh i can't believe this is happening... from all i thought could happen to me i never even got on my mind the fact that the one person who said was the love of my life would became someone as selfish and cruel as he is right now :( i guess it's part my fault cuz i didn't claimed his atention when i shoutld, anyway, i guess also he should have realised i needed him, either way it was all about him and my problems were my problems, he is definately the voice that made me cry... love is cruel to me, leonardo daniel aguilar cervantes, you are the cruelest person i've ever met, but still the love of my life, and i'll miss you... from heaven...
