LyricsEdit

Mimi:
It's true you sold your guitar and bought a car?

Roger:
It's true - I'm leaving now for Santa Fe, It's true you're with this yuppie scum.

Benny:
You said you'd never speak to him again

Mimi:
Not now

Maureen:
Who said you that you have any say in who she says things to at all?

Roger:
Yeah!

Joanne:
Who said that you should stick your nose in other people's...

Maureen:
Who said I was talking to you?

Joanne:
we used to have this fight each night

Mark:
Calm down

Joanne:
She'd never admit I existed

Mark:
Everyone please

Mimi:
He was the same way - he was always "run away - hit the road don't commit" you're full of shit

Joanne:
She's in denial

Mimi:
He's in denial

Joanne:
You gave an inch when i gave a mile
Mark:
Come on

Mimi:
I gave a mile

Roger:
Gave a mile to who?

Mark:
Come on guys chill!

Mimi & Joanne:
I'd be happy to die for a taste of what Angel had: someone to live for-unafraid to say i love you

Roger:
All your words are nice Mimi but love's not a three-way street you'll never share real love until you love your self-I
should know

Collins:
You all said you'd be cool today so please for my sake...
I can't believe he's gone
I can't believe you're going
I can't believe this family must die
Angel helped us believe in love I can't believe you disagree

All:
I can't believe this is good bye

( Maureen and Joanne reconcile and go home. Collins returns to the funeral home. Mimi and Benny leave together. Roger and
Mark are left alone.)

Mark:
I hear there are great restaurants out west

Roger:
Some of the best, how could she?

Mark:
How could you let her go?

Roger:
You just don't know...how could we lose Angel?

Mark:
Maybe you'll see why when you stop escaping your pain at least now if you try Angel's death won't be in vain

Roger:
His death is in vain

Mark:
Are you insane? There's so much to care about there's me there's Mimi

Roger:
Mimi's got her baggage too

Mark:
So do you

Roger:
Who are you to tell me what I know. What to do

Mark:
A friend

Roger:
But who, Mark, are you? "Mark has got his work" they say "Mark lives for his work" and "Mark's in love with his work" Mark
hides in his work

Mark:
From what?

Roger:
From facing your failure, facing your loneliness facing the fact you live a lie. Yes, you live a lie tell you why
you're always preaching not to be numb when that's how you thrive you pretend to create and observe when you really detach
from feeling alive

Mark:
Perhaps it's because I'm the one of us to survive

Roger:
Poor baby

Mark:
Mimi still loves Roger
Is Roger really jealous or afraid that Mimi's weak

Roger:
Mimi did look pale

Mark:
Mimi's gotten thin
Mimi's running out of time
Roger's running out the door--

Roger: No more! Oh no! I've gotta go.

Mark:
Hey! For someone who's always been let down who's heading out of town?

Roger:
For someone who longs for a community of his own, who's with his camera, alone?
I'll call. I hate the fall.
(Mimi enters)
You heard?

Mimi:
Every word.
You don't want baggage without lifetime guarantees.
You don't want to watch me die?
 I just came to say goodbye love, goodbye love
came to say goodbye love, goodbye.
Just came to say

Roger: Glory

Mimi:
goodbye love

Roger:
One blaze of

Mimi:
goodbye love

Roger:
glory

Mimi:
goodbye love goodbye

Roger: I have to find
(Roger leaves Benny enters)

Mimi:
please don't touch me understand I'm scared I need to go away

Mark:
I know a place, a clinic

Benny:
A rehab?

Mimi:
Maybe, could you?

Benny:
I'll pay

Mimi:
goodbye love, goodbye love
came to say goodbye love, goodbye.
just came to say goodbye love,
goodbye love, goodbye love, goodbye love
hello disease


TriviaEdit

  • Part of the song was cut from the 2005 Film Adaption, although the full song is available on the soundtrack, and the extended scene is included on the DVD as a special feature. It was cut down because it felt like it messed with the flow of the movie.
  • Lyrics are slightly altered on the movie soundtrack.
