"Goodbye Again, Or" as written by and Peter/eriksson Moren....
It's five o'clock this morning, and the sun is on the rise
There's frosting on the window pane, and sorrow in your eyes
The stars are fading quietly, the night is nearly gone
And so you turn away from me, and tears begin to come

And it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leavin' you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave

It seems a shame to leave you now, the days are soft and warm
I long to lay me down again, to hold you in my arms
I long to kiss the tears away, give you back the smile
Other voices beckon me, to go a little while

And it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leavin' you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave

Have to go and see some friends of mine, some that I don't know
Some who aren't familiar with my name,
It's something that's inside of me not hard to understand
It's anyone who listens to me sing

And if your hours are empty now, who am I to blame
You think if I were always here, our love would be the same
As it is the time we have, is worth the time alone
And lying by your side, the greatest peace I've ever known

But it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leavin' you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave

    My OpinionLet me tell you why I love this song so much.

    Falling Out is a spectacular album, especially considering how low-budget this band were at the time, and the all the artwork along with the songs works together very well to create a broody, cold atmosphere perfect for the subject matter of the album; urban depression, the highs and lows (but mostly lows) of relationships, etc…. but also, most of the tracks on the album are big, brash, big production, spacious, sweeping and full of layers upon layers of instruments that really bolster the sound of the band. And then, at the end, the last track is only 2:01 minutes in length, and is a last-minute recording of an acoustic song by the band’s singer, Peter Peter Morén, recorded on his mobile phone on the day the album was going to be sent off to the factories for pressing. And this is phones around 2002-2004, so the quality’s flaky as fuck. But for some reason it doesn’t matter; this song, with its simple lyrics and repetitive hook is incredibly moving, perhaps the most so on the album. And the cryptic title, cut off abruptly, is in fact an optimistic end to the album. Having spoken to Peter over twitter, I believe that the ‘Or’ is meant to signify that actually it doesn’t have to be goodbye yet again, that this time things could actually change for the better. Which I think is a really, really nice way to end an album.
