What song has (mostly) nothing but "Goodbye" as the lyrics?

  • There's a song I heard in a music store several years ago (between 2005-2011 I think) for which the lyrics are just the word "Goodbye" over and over, but it is said with more and more emotion as the song goes on.

    It is sung by a male singer.

    It's pretty funny! But I think it was meant to be taken seriously. I don't even remember the instrumentation. Does anyone have any ideas for possible songs it could be? Thank you!

    InverseTelecine- I think I am also searching for this song! It was in a mixed cd that I lost in a move last year. I can't remember much about the song except that it was beautiful, mournful, and made me cry the first time I listened. Have you found the song? I am going crazy trying to figure this out! It's been over a year now that I've been searching! Please let me know! Thanks, Sarah

    Sarah, OP found and accepted the correct answer. Please check it ;-) good luck.

    @Sarah Honestly I'd like a second opinion! Which do you think it is, or is it none of those in the accepted answer? Just curious. Thanks!

    I think it's a song by 30 Seconds to Mars titled "A Modern Myth"


    Oh my gosh I think that's it! I counted 18 iterations of "goodbye" which isn't as many as I remembered, but the increasing, over-the-top, emotion in the delivery is definitely what I was looking for! Thank you so much!

    My pleasure! A few years ago I lost my playlist that had this song on it. I couldn't remember the name of it. It took me forever to find and when I did a search for the song this website came up with your question. It was not easy to find, but I am glad I did. It is one of the more memorable songs because of the emotion that comes across from one repeated word.
