  • 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 Writer/s: ALEXANDER PAUL KAPRANOS HUNTLEY, BRYAN CHARLES HOLLON
