"So Now Goodbye" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her seventh studio album Light Years (2000).

Background and composition

"So Now Goodbye" is a disco-pop track, which seems to sample Madonna's "Lucky Star" in the intro. Lyrically, the song discusses Kylie leaving her lover because she has realised his morals and his intentions. The song was written by Kylie and Steve Anderson, and was produced bu Johnny Douglas; it appears as the third song on Light Years.

The song runs for three minutes and thirty seven seconds, written in the key of B minor and set at a tempo of 129 beats per minute.

Live performances

Kylie included the song on the On a Night Like This Tour in 2001, which was launched in promotion of Light Years. It was included in the third section of the show, entitled Broadway Swing, with Kylie emerging in white tails and a top hat. The song closed the section; during the performance, Kylie's crew would attempt to make her laugh from backstage and mess up her cues; this was revealed in the 'Will Kylie Crack?' behind the scenes section on the Live in Sydney DVD release.

Lyrics

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Remember when I saw you for the first time
I never thought you'd be mine
Then we went ahead and fell in love
Heaven was our common ground
We were never coming down
The two of us we had more than enough

But you and I are not the same
To you love is just a game
Things'll never be the same again

So now goodbye
This time I will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way too long
Started out with trust
But it isn't just about the good times, baby

Remember all the promises we swore to
Can't say I didn't warn you
How I did adore you way back then
(I did adore you, adore you, adore you)
But you broke a solemn vow
Ha! You're paying for it now
Wouldn't you expect more from a friend?

But you and I are not the same
To you love is just a game
Things will never be the same again

So now goodbye
This time I will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way too long
Started out with trust
But it isn't just about the good times, baby
So now goodbye
This time I will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way too long
I don't need you now
And I am, oh, so tired of excuses, baby

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

This time will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way to long this time
It all started out with trust
But it isn't about the good times, baby
So now goodbye
This time I will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way too long (stayed for way too long)
I don't need you now
And I am, oh, so tired of excuses, baby (tired of excuses)
This time will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way to long this time
It all started out with trust
But it isn't about the good times, baby
So now goodbye
This time I will be gone, goodbye
I stayed for way too long
I don't need you now
And I am, oh, so tired of excuses, baby
