Our Last Goodbye

Lyrics by Killing Joke © ???


Only five other countries are known to have executed juvenile offenders in the 1990s: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Nigeria, and Yemen. The US has executed more juvenile criminals than all of them combined, and is the only one known to have put any to death since 1997.

There's so much to say
And so little time
I'd like to say thank you
For the moments we shared

They open the blinds
I look through the window
Look into my eyes
And never let go

And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes
And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes

There is so much that you don't tell
I never told you how much I felt
Now I give you the full truth
Think only the best of me
Think only the best of me
There's only one thing you should know
Love is sweeter than death

And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes
And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes

In 1997 the USA carried out seventy four executions, the highest number for four decades. Only China, Saudi Arabia, and Iran were known to have executed more prisoners.

There's so much to say
And so little time
I'd like to say thank you
For the moments we shared

They open the blinds
I look through the window
There's only one thing you should know
Love is sweeter than death

And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes
And in the moment before you take your last breath
Catch my eye
When you know it's your last embrace
Then we'll say our last goodbyes
