Franz Ferdinand - Goodbye Lovers & Friends Lyrics




Don’t play pop music
You know I hate pop music
Just sing amazing godless grace

Don’t wear bright colours
You know I hate bright colours
I never liked you for the way you dressed
Anyway

Goodbye lovers and friends
So sad to leave you
When they lie and say
“This is not the end”
you can laugh as if
we’re still together
you can laugh about it all

I hope you didn’t bring flowers
Hope you didn’t write a poem
Hope you remember every fight

I know I could be noxious
Or occasionally cruel
But only to the ones
I loved

Goodbye lovers and friends…

Don’t get inventory
Don’t fake your memory
Don’t give me virtues that I never had
Don’t get sychophantal
We never were sentimental
I know I took more than I ever gave

I don’t need to be forgiven
But a moment from the living
That’s the only thing I ask

Goodbye lovers and friends…
…you can laugh as if
we’re still together
but this really is the end

Franz Ferdinand Goodbye Lovers & Friends Comments
  1. Фрида Гудим

    Very bright group

  2. Stifuk Cleiton

    It's a masterpiece though I'm not a fan of words. Is it bad? All of a sudden I met someone famous and treated me like a talk show apparently it wasn't ok that I didn't laugh or bring a crowd with me every place I go. What's with you man, that vibe. I honestly just wanted to check if it was indeedy who I thought it was

    lyricsssssss


    Don't play pop music, no
    You know I hate pop music
    Just sing amazing godless grace

    I don't wear bright colours, oh
    You know I hate bright colours
    I never liked you for the way you dressed
    Anyway

    Goodbye lovers and friends
    So sad to leave you
    When they lie and say
    "This is not the end"
    You can laugh as if
    We're still together
    You can laugh about it all
    Anyway

    I hope you didn't bring flowers
    Hope you didn't write a poem
    Hope you remember every fight

    I know I could be noxious
    Or occasionally cruel
    But only to the ones
    I loved

    So goodbye lovers and friends
    So sad to leave you
    When they lie and say
    "This is not the end"
    You can laugh as if
    We're still together
    You can laugh about it all

    Don't get inventory
    Don't fake your memory
    Don't give me virtues that I never had
    Don't get sychophantal
    We never were sentimental
    I know that I took more than I ever gave

    I don't need to be forgiven
    But a moment from the living
    Yeah that's the only thing I ask

    So don't play pop music, no
    You know I hate pop music
    Just sing amazing godless grace

    So goodbye lovers and friends
    It's so sad to leave you
    When they lie and say
    "This is not the end"
    You can laugh as if
    We're still together
    But this really is the end

  4. Gerson Curi

    you know i hate pop music.

  5. JFJHJPmusicLove

    Godless Grace is pretty damn sick.

  6. ji xia

    My fav. from this band

  7. Bogdan Montoya

    so sad to leave you McCarthy 😥

  8. SteampunkTigerlily18

    Who knew bitterness and resentment could sound so SASSY

  9. SteampunkTigerlily18

    Sounds like another case of 40' "okay that's a great album lets make a vicious yet stylish song about death."

    Kevin Jordan

    40' is subjective. You think it's about death, I think it's about work.

    Robin

    40' feet can also be a rumour in Scotland abouta treasure under a casino, 40 feet beneath it. But it's just impossible to get to it. But this song is about a funeral for sure.

    Diamond Dude30

    SteampunkTigerlily18 I hear 40' as a point in a person's life where they have to make a choice. Jump or stay.

    Swaggy Yankee

    I think 40' is about jumping off a cliff to the water

  10. AJ 2000

    Nick :(
    At least they say he will come back

  11. Vita Victoriya Yavorska

    Super!!!

  12. Carmen Skull

    This song has the tribal vibe that I kinda addict to, did anyone know any other song sounds like this? <3

    Yoav Ledezma

    Listen to The Amazing Sounds of Orgy by Radiohead. I hope that you like it.

    Carmen Skull

    Thank you :D Nice to know!!

    Carmen Skull

    sounds creepy but in a cool way :)

    Natalia Sulbaran

    the other side of paradise - glass animals

  13. Thylacinidae FR

    WHY DOES THIS MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY AND SAD AT THE SAME TIME

  14. Nuno Prospero dos Santos

    Ironically, this is the last song as Franz Ferdinand, before FFS. Coincidence?

    Symaryha Wentz

    +Nuno Prospero dos Santos Sad...

    butt butts

    Nuno Prospero dos Santos um... but they're making a new album?

    Nuno Prospero dos Santos

    butt butts I hope só, but... with or without Nick? With Sparks?

    Luis Eduardo Cortés Moreno

    Nuno Prospero dos Santos they will have some concerts later this year so i hope with nick.

  15. Ian Favreau

    Goodbye lovers and Franz.

    Sorry, I had to.

    Rock Skeleton

    +Ian Favreau that was perfect thank u for that not being sarcastic promise

    Milah Sarangani

    Good to you bro

    Milah Sarangani

    Goodbye to you brother

  17. Víctor Vila Ramírez

    "So don't play pop music, no. You know I hate pop music".

  18. Anna Bis

    dawno już mnie nikt  tak nie zaskoczył-nie mogę przestać słuchać. Super!

  19. Emily Shadick

    "lovely lovely". I don't know why but I really love that bit.

    Nelson Quiñones León

    I entered here just to post that, awesome.

  20. beautyiswithin001

    Probably my favorite song off this album. Franz Ferdinand is 100% in my top faves

  21. MrCosmos69

    goodbye bloggers and youtubers #blog   #youtubesong  :-)

  22. Frank Antony

    "We re still together but this really is the end?" I just love that part :3

  23. Theo Milero

    I love this song, but first i understood "if the lion say". That appeared weird :D

  24. Sarah Kowal

    sERPENTINE 
    gross sobbing

  25. Ginpachi -sensei

    Woo-hoo! Franz Ferdinand is an amazing band.

  26. God Monkey Abu

    Undoubtedly referring to the fact that Alex is atheist and does not believe in an after life. Even though I am Christian, I love this song. The tone is perfect for the unapologetic, melancholy message. Beautifully written, love these guys.

  27. Houston Bowen

    me: ~goodbye lovers and friends its so sad to leave you~ FOSHIZZLE THIS TIME

  28. DooDaDoo

    Just stopped talking with someone I cared for and this song fits perfectly. I fucking love this album.

  29. Jefferson da Silva

    underated song 

  30. SoapyVlogs

    I don't know why... But these "lovely, lovely" at the beginning of the song sounds me like... Pitbull ._.

    BTW, one of my favorite songs of this amazing band.

    Bah, Indeed, all his songs are one of my favorites

    lulila3000

    damn it, you are right. I had never thought about it and now every damn time I listen to the song I notice that "lovely, lovely" part hahaha

    xscarletfields

    "Don't play pop music, you know I hate pop music" I think they did that on purpose.. 

  31. discojack

    "Don't play pop music.. you know I hate pop music!".. my thoughts exactly! :P

    Aslo Child

  32. JfJhJpMusic

    Misha Goncharuk
