‘The Last Goodbye’ by THE KILLS

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t rely on a dime a day love that don’t go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can’t get by on an odds and ends love that don’t ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won’t forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can’t quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don’t say anything

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole

Blues Rock Tandem THE KILLS Released 4th Album ‘BLOOD PRESSURES’ 10 Years Ago

7 April 2021

Band: THE KILLS
Who: Blues-punk rockers Alison Mosshart (US) and Jamie Hince (UK)
who hit the scene 20 years ago, in 2001 / 5 albums (so far)

Album: BLOOD PRESSURES – 4th LP
Released: 5 April 2011 – 10 years ago

AllMusic / Heather Phares wrote: “Alison Mosshart leads the way on Blood Pressures,
her dynamic vocals demanding the spotlight whether she and Jamie Hince further streamline their familiar sound or carve out new territory… Blood Pressures is a darker, slower ride than Midnight Boom, but it shows the Kills can make subtle innovations as well as bold ones, and make them fit their signature sound to boot.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.
