Goodbye 2014

 

2014 was a strange, sad year, full of goodbyes. Here’s one last one, to the year itself. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, 2014.

Next!

Bring it on 2015!

This farewell song was written by Paul McCartney in 1969 and performed by Mary Hopkin as a follow up to her hit, “Those Were The Days.”

GOODBYE

Please don’t wake me up too late
Tomorrow comes and I will not be late
Late today when it becomes
Tomorrow I
Will leave and go away

Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
My love, goodbye

Songs that linger on my lips
Excite me now and linger on my mind
Leave your flowers at my door;
I leave them for
The one who waits behind

Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
My love, goodbye

Far away my lover sings
A lonely song and calls me to his side
Where the sound of lonely drums
Invited me on
I must be by his side

Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
Goodbye. Goodbye
My love, goodbye
