I Love You Goodbye
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


I would never normally go bowling
On a friday morning in New Orleans
But I like to come here to remember
The kind of places you took me
Like the time we stole a Datsun
And drove all night to the everglades
Until we crashed it in a big electric storm
And stood there listening to the bayou rain

The county sheriff had a hair, lip
Louisiana's pride and joy
He said politley as he cuffed me
"I never busted an English boy
But I will accept a contribution
To the Opelousas' Charity Ball
But you better drive this dirty Datsun
Into the Gulf of Mexico"

Under a Cajun moon I lay me open
There is a spirit here that won't be broken
Some words are sad to sing
Some leave me tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you)
But the hardest words I know
Are I love you goodbye
I love you goodbye

Typhoon Pierre delayed my plane till morning
(Jusqu'au matin)
Let the bontemps rouler from your accordion
(L'accordien)
Under a cajun moon I lay me open
(Y a un esprit partout)
There is a spirit here that won't be broken
(Simple words are sad to sing
Some words are sad to sing
(They leave me tongue-tied)
Some leave you tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you my friend)
But the hardest words I know
(Is I love you goodbye)
Are I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, au revoir)
I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, toujours)
I love you, goodbye

I think he's one of the finest musical geniuses to ever have graced us with his music...I listen to him daily.

Naomi Bargmeyer

His artistry isn't easily understood by the majority. This song, for example, is incredibly complicated to perform lyrically or instrumentally. Add to the visual art of the video and the emotion in his voice... you don't just hear the song. You feel what he is trying to convey. Extremely gifted artist.

Naomi Bargmeyer

Must agree

He's far from that. But he's interesting.

When I play this song, I have to repeat it at least 10 times before I can move on, it touches something so deep, so familiar, nostalgic, I just love it

Me too, and the one I live in a suitcase from the same album
