Goodbyes
Post Malone Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Me and Kurt feel the same, too much pleasure is pain
My girl spites me in vain, all I do is complain
She needs something to change, need to take off the edge
So fuck it all tonight
And don't tell me to shut up
When you know you talk too much
But you don't got shit to say

I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There's no way I can save you
'Cause I need to be saved, too
I'm no good at goodbyes

We're both actin' insane but too stubborn to change
Now I'm drinkin' again, 80 proof in my veins
And my fingertips stained, lookin' over the edge
Don't fuck with me tonight
Say you needed this heart, then you got it
Turns out that it wasn't what you wanted
And we wouldn't let go and we lost it
Now I'm a goner

I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There's no way I can save you
'Cause I need to be saved, too
I'm no good at goodbyes

I want you out of my life
I want you back here tonight
I'm tryna cut you, no knife
I wanna slice you and dice you
My argue possessive, it got you precise
Can you not turn off the TV? I'm watchin' the fight
I flood the garage, blue diamond, no shark
You're Barbie life doll, it's Nicki Minaj
You don't need a key to drive, your car on the charger
I just wanna see the side, the one that's unbothered
And I don't want you to never go outside (outside)
I promise if they play, my niggas slidin' (slidin')
I'm fuckin' her, the tour bus still ridin' (ridin')
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There's no way I could save you
'Cause I need to be saved, too
I'm no good at goodbyes

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I'm no good at goodbyes
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I'm no good at goodbyes

Overall Meaning

In “Goodbyes”, Post Malone describes a tumultuous relationship with a woman he can’t seem to forget. He compares his situation with that of Kurt Cobain, the late frontman of Nirvana, suggesting that both he and Cobain felt similarly about the relationship between pleasure and pain. The song’s verses describe the singer’s struggles with his girlfriend, who seems to enjoy hurting him, leading to constant complaining on his part. He recognizes that they both need something to change in order to keep the relationship going, but ultimately decides to just “fuck it all tonight” and forget about it.


The chorus then shifts to the singer’s regrets and his inability to let go. He wants this woman out of his head and his bedroom, but at the same time he needs someone to save him just as much as she needs to be saved. The song ends with a repetition of the chorus, emphasizing the singer’s difficulty in saying goodbye and coming to terms with his feelings.

“Goodbyes” Lyrics:

Me and Kurt feel the same
Too much pleasure is pain
My girl spites me in vain
All I do is complain
She needs something to change
Need to take off the edge
So fuck it all tonight
And don’t tell me to shut up
When you know you talk too much
But you don’t got shit to say
I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There’s no way I can save you
Because I need to be saved too
I’m no good at goodbyes
We’re both acting insane
But too stubborn to change
Now I’m drinking again
80 proof in my veins
And my fingertips stained
Looking over the edge
Don’t fuck with me tonight
Said you needed this heart then you got it
Turns out that it wasn’t what you wanted
And we wouldn’t let go and we lost it
Now I’m goner
I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There’s no way I can save you
Because I need to be saved too
I’m no good at goodbyes

I want you out of my life
I want you back here tonight
I’m tryna to cut you no knife
I wanna slice you and dice you
My heart gets possessive
It got you precise
Can you not turn off the TV
I’m watching a fight
I flood the garage
Blue diamond, no shark
Your Barbie life doll is Nicki Minaj
You don’t need a key to drive
Your car on the charger
I just want to see the side
The one that’s unbothered
And I don’t want you never go outside
I promise if they play my n***a sliding
I’m fuckin and the tour bus still ridin

I want you out of my head
I want you out of my bedroom tonight
There’s no way I can save you
Because I need to be saved too
I’m no good at goodbyes

Literally one of the best songs ever! Post Malone so extremely talented! I am an old school rock music person and Post has truly transcended the lines with this one. On a different note love his Nirvana covers they did during the Pandemic! Would love to see you come out with some original music in the same genre'..

Chris Mulvaney
