Walker Brothers, The - Just Say Goodbye Lyrics




Just say goodbye, and let me walk away
There's nothing more to say, when love like ours can die
Just say goodbye, forget the life we knew
The memory of you, will only make me cry

Just say goodbye, to leave me on my own
To face the world alone and never knowing why
Just say goodbye, and though I don't know how
I couldn't hate you now, no matter how I tried

Just say goodbye, it's sad that you must go
You loved me once I know, this much I can't deny

Oh my love, my own true love, oh where did we go wrong
Oh my love, my own true love, oh how can I go on?
Just say goodbye, it's sad that you must go
You loved me once I know, this much I can't deny

Just say goodbye and please don't turn around
Another love you've found now spread your wings and fly

Just say goodbye... just say goodbye... just say goodbye...

Walker Brothers, The Just Say Goodbye Comments
  1. Julie Robinson

    I can't say goodbye, in my head you are still here while I can still hear your wonderful voice. So sad.

  2. John Anthony

    Hi Guidofski,I just came across this Pet Clark song by Scott. A real stage piece so like Pet (my Gill's family knew her in Epsom in the 60s) - and I worked with one of Pet's exs many years later. She's a real nice woman. And we both like her too...Gill looks a lot like Pet.

    Lovely version of a beautiful song with a really powerful lyric. Particularly sad today, when we say goodbye to Scott Walker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxVaPgQVikM

  9. Merri Miles

    RIP Scott Walker 💔

  10. Andrés Galván

  11. mikeyenfield

    RIP Scott Walker

  12. colin warner

    When Scott and John worked like this, nothing in any studio could come near them. R.I.P John.

    dave krivanek

    And now Scott as well.

  13. Raymond Morgan

    Wonderful wonderful orchestration so melodic + dramatic. One of their best if little known.

  14. Duff Gordon

    I think John's vocals are perfectly timed to match Scott's exact timing. It sounds fuller than just one vocal. Always remember John's words. "I WAS THE MAN, from organization , song selection, YET, we played later with having Scott be the man. THIS ALLOWED ME TO DO THINGS I ALWAYS WANTED TO EXPERIMENT , aka accapella moments where John slides in and out.
    john's monumental "That won't happen to you," is all one needs to play once in a while , to remember why John was the first lead singer. Exquisite. FINALLY IT NEEDS NOTING THAT THE QUALITY OF "NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU" IS A SONG, THAT IF ELVIS WITH HIS WHITE WINGS AND STILL THIN, WOULD HAVE TAKEN jOHN'S SONG WITH THE FULL ORCHESTRA, BUILD INTO A HUGE CRESCENDO- AND NEARLY EVERYONE SAYS TO HIMSLF, "SOMETIMES i FORGET
    WHY THEY CALLED HIM THE king. So many stories--my fav is one of his back-up singers, a Christian woman, said the first time she really saw him up close, she was emotionally and sexually drawn like a magnet. she said after that I tried my best not to look over, because it would go from
    innocent to lust in seconds. Eddie Murray has a picture or painting of him in every room of that small house of his lol. Sammy Davis, ALL GOOD WORDS. . Sorry, I know I went off track, but there is a true saying- no matter how great the person thinks he is, there is the someone greater coming soon? Or maybe NOT!! dg

    “Oh my love, my own true love...”. Swoon

  16. usachapwife

    Wonderful.

  17. Kenneth Latham

    John Walker's voice is magnificent here.

  18. mckevis

    Thought I had all of there music not heard this thanks for posting love it

  19. Anthony Mead

    This is perfect for Scott to sing. I think this is the best thing they ever did as a group. Fascinating.

  20. Pauline Arrowsmith

    oh boy, scott and john together on this track awesome,but have always loved scott x

  21. Anthony Mead

    Scott's voice......close your eyes and think of heaven!

  22. Anthony Mead

    Totally agree with you.

  23. Anthony Mead

    This is brilliant. Dark and moody, just right for the Walker Brothers. They excelled in this sort of thing. Didn't realise Petula Clarke was so talented a songwriter. Excellent.

  24. Philippe Landry

    What a bizarre Stravinsky opening :)

    ModMokkaMatti

    It's no more bizarre than the world in 2019, as it goes down in flames.

  25. wingrhames

    Pet Clark would deserve her place in the Hall Of Fame of pop composer if only for this song. She may not have been as prolific as fellow composer Tony Hatch, but she's exceptionnally gifted.

  26. RCPoems

    Wonderful song by under rated songwriter Petula Clark , magnificent vocal too. John Walker told me he thought it was the best song they ever recorded

    john neale

    RCPoems I'm sure it was written by Trent/Hatch

    mikeyenfield

    Music by Petula Clark, original French words by Pierre Delanoe ,English words by Tony Hatch .I have the sheet music which states this

  27. hgymjz

    What a singer .So sorry your gone. :o(


  28. veadlsteak

    Guida, saying thank you is not enough!!! Love Scott!

  29. Lenah J

    Just some kind of sentimental nostalgy...

  30. adleschott beck

    @psychodamned ...so true about the build up in song, Scott Walkers "Such A Small Love" is immense for that same reason.

  31. centmillevolts

    nice, but as a pet fan i prefer her and Delanoes song as it was performed by her.

    tom kent

    Pierre Delanoe wrote the French lyrics for Pet's song.

  32. Pipkin Hopkins

    Just love how this song grows. All mild then the drums kick in and it unfolds into a great big gothic, spector like anthem !! Only the Walkers could do this !

  33. guidofski

    You're welcome! Good to see you Pet fans enjoying this version. :)

  34. petclark1

    What a great version...I never even knew this existed....thank you so much for posting this gem! I'm one of Pet Clark's biggest fans but I really enjoy hearing a song like this done in a different manner from hers. The Vogues version is good too-but again, completely different.

  35. jemb2000

    Ah, I see. Petula Clark's french recordings are sometimes better than her English ones e.g. There Goes My Love...

  36. jemb2000

    Do you mean Petula Clark's french version?
