Last Goodbye
Jeff Buckley Lyrics


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

This is our last embrace
Must I dream and always see your face?
Why can't we overcome this wall?
Baby, maybe its just because you didn't know you at all

Kiss me, please kiss me
But kiss me out of desire, babe, 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"
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 oh, ya didn't know
Ooo 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
Over

Lyrics: 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

This is our last embrace
Must I dream and always see your face
Why can't we overcome this wall
Well, 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
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

Keith Camplin

My grandmother had just passed away a couple of hours ago. My wife and I happened to be right down the block from the home where she was at.

This just happened to be an accident that we were in the vicinity of the home. My XM satellite subscription ended today so I turned on 93.1 WXRT Chicago and this song just started with the slide guitar.

I looked to my wife and said "love this tune", her cell phone went off as I saw the name of my aunt roll across the screen. I knew the news.

How appropriate this song should be playing as I find out the news of the passing of my grandmother. We were up in the room with the rest of the family about 10 minutes later.

Truly our last goodbye.

Well, maybe it's just because i didn't know you at all
Kiss me, please kiss me

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

had the great honor of having a mutual friend with Jeff, Mario Sevayega who in may of 1995 introduced me to Jeff at a Show in New Haven. I asked to shake his hand and Jeff said NO, and proceeded to give me the BIGGEST hug. He felt a connection to me even before meeting me because my friend had told him about me and me being Colombian was a point of interest to him because his grandfather had lived in the Panama Canal zone while it was still part of Colombia. I always smile thinking about that awesome experience

@Ashley Dixon I would have loved to have been at that table!

I have heard from others who worked with him and met him even casually that he was one of the gentlest, sweetest humans. It's so lovely to hear these similar recounts over and over again.
