GOODBYE
Who Is Fancy Lyrics


I was a hot mess
In my Sunday best
Black tears in my eyes

You were my first love
You were my only one
I can't believe your lies

Once we were like bottle rockets
Now I know I have to stop it
Please believe me
This isn't easy
I just need to say goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Losin' my mind
Goodbye

You got a new friend
You like to play pretend
I'm just keepin' my cool

Turn on that smoke machine
Magic and make-believe
She'll never know you like I do

Once we were a fire burnin'
Now you're just a lesson I'm learnin'
Please believe me
This isn't easy
I just need to say goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Losin' my mind
Goodbye

I know that I can find somebody
You won't ever find nobody else like me

I know that I can find somebody
You won't ever find nobody else like me

I know that I can find somebody
You won't ever find nobody else like me

I know that I can find somebody
You won't ever find nobody else like me

Once we were like bottle rockets
Now I know I have to stop it
Please believe me
This isn't easy
I just need to say goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Losin' my mind
Goodbye

This is how I read the videos, too, particularly the one with the character who starts off wearing a wig. I read these videos as an allegory for how the music industry pushed Fancy to soften or cover his identity in order to be "acceptable" for mainstream audiences. I formed that opinion before I realized that this was his debut single, though; now I think that it just stands as a bit of prescient irony.

Edit: and before I realized that this was his debut single, I also interpreted the other person in the song (to whom the singer is saying goodbye) to be the music industry with all of their expectations for what he should be like. My reading of the song's lyrics is below, even though obviously it doesn't make sense if it was his first song rather than his last recording.

You were my first love / You were my only one (the label he signed with, his excitement at breaking into the industry and the loyalty he felt -- echoed by signing the contract in the video)

Once we were like bottle rockets / Now I know I have to stop it (i.e., stop making music within a mainstream context; simultaneously, having to stop expressing himself so freely -- the character being seated in the makeup chair and having the first layer of differentness peeled away)

Please believe this isn't easy / I just need to say goodbye (the pain in the character's face as they begin to be molded - it's not easy to set down those markers of self-expression)

You've got a new friend, you like to play pretend / I'm just keeping my cool (i.e., the next new star; the character holding their tongue as the manager talks to the producer, setting their fate)

Turn on that smoke machine / Magic and make-believe (the theatrics of the music industry, particularly the viral campaign that obscured his identity until the mainstream was already hooked -- the set-pieces traipsing past, taking priority and right-of-way and blocking the artist's confident walk)

She'll never know you like I do (other artists haven't been put under quite the same pressure to conform and so might not understand the full extent of their underhandedness)

Once we were a fire burnin' / Now you're just a lesson I'm learnin' (He used to be really enthusiastic, but now he sees the mistake he made in signing that contract -- learning the realities of the industry)

I know I can find somebody / You won't ever find nobody else like me (a protest against how they stripped away his individuality and identity to fit him into a mold and how what makes him valuable and appealing is exactly what they wanted to pare away -- the costume person measuring the character and dressing them up in "correct" clothes)

I just need to say goodbye / goodbye / losing my mind / goodbye (both saying goodbye to his identity -- the ache of performing as he is expected to -- but also saying goodbye to the industry's trickery)

And then the fade-out at the end, with the character left standing alone and empty as the camera moves out past the abandoned set-pieces, the little bit of light coming in through the window representing the tiniest sliver of hope for authenticity.

I was a hot mess, in my Sunday best.
Got tears in my eyes.
You were my first love, you were my only one.
I can't believe your lies.

Once we were like battle rockets, now I know I have to stop it.
Please believe me, this isn't easy.
I just need to say goodbye...

Goodbye, goodbye
Losin' my mind
Goodbye.

You got a new friend, you like to play pretend.
I'm just keepin' my cool.
Turn on that smoke machine, magic and make-believe
She'll never know you like I do.

Once we were like a fire burning, now you're just a lesson I'm learning.
Please believe me, this isn't easy.
I just need to say goodbye.

Goodbye, goodbye.
Losin' my mind
Goodbye.

I know that I can find somebody.
You will never find nobody else like me.
I know that I can find somebody.
You will never find nobody else like me, yeah yeah...
I know that I can find somebody.
You will never find nobody else like me.
I know that I can find somebody.
You will never find nobody else like me, yeah yeah...

Once we were like battle rockets, now I know I have to stop it.
Please believe me, this isn't easy.
I just need to say goodbye...

Goodbye, goodbye
Losin' my mind
Goodbye.
