"Goodbye" on Chase Bank Hold Music 

It seems that a lot of folks have been hearing our song, "Goodbye" while on hold with Chase Bank over the last year or so. Many have found us only by creative searches on Google with snippets of lyrics. In an effort make it easier to locate us on the vast interwebs, I am posting all the lyrics here. Hope this helps, and thanks for all the e-mails and new fans coming our way.

You can download the song for free if you sign up for our mailing list. Go to the Download Music page and look for the song under our album Four Blocks To Hennepin.

Goodbye

Goodbye I'll have your picture framed
Goodbye and things will be the same as they were yesterday
Goodbye I'll call you every day
Goodbye we'll have so much to say when we are far apart

And I won't break down
No I won't break down
When I play that song that I wrote for you
And I won't let go
No I won't let go
But I want to know, was it real for you?

Goodbye I'll try to board a plane
Goodbye and things will be the same as they were yesterday
Goodbye your voice is sounding strange
Goodbye, but all the same your face is so indelible

Was it all in vain?
Was it worth the pain?
Was I so naive to think that we could beat the odds?

Goodbye I know you had to go
Goodbye we both agreed there's so much more ahead of us
Goodbye I guess you're out again
Goodbye, it's good you found a friend who understands your pain

And I won't break down
No I won't break down
When I play that song that I wrote for you
And I won't look back
No I won't look back
When I finally take your picture down

    As a Chase employee for the last year I have heard this song roughly over 50 times and I love it. Lyrics are very creative and have great meaning. Hope you guys come to Florida to do a show

    I have to second Austin's comment above. Was sitting on hold for Chase today and heard "Goodbye" and set about trying to find it. As a musician and vocalist myself I have to say this caught my ear immediately. There's just not a lot of music that sounds this good anymore and the lyrics and production are equally strong. At first I thought it could be a tune from a musical on Broadway. You're right about the difficulty in finding it though. I finally thought to put "And I won't let go" and "Was it real for you" in quotes within the same search and that's how I found you. Can't wait to hear more.

    Yes! I am another Chase customer who was on hold and knew I had to find this song as soon as I heard it. Perfect in melody, instrumental and and lyrics. Best of luck to you, Rob, and the band. You are totally solid!

    Love this song! As a songwriter myself I was also impressed with this record the moment I heard it & though "now why isnt this mainstream"??? There are actually more than 2 other songs on the Chase hold but this was the first one I located as I was impressed by the melody, bridge, hook, musicianship, etc. Unfortunately there are also 2 jazz songs I cant locate as there are no lyrics (thus making it impossible to search) but here here a list of the other songs you'll hear (if you hold long enough, as I have): --"Goodbye" by Rob Meany & Tarramera -- “Two Eighteen” by Garfield Mayor --“Am I” by J Scott Bergman --“1978” by Salim Nourallah --“Aint Enough” by Jill Stevenson Band --“From Now On” by Wavelength Band --“Easy to Love” by Tess Hensley If anyone can identify the jazz record and the sort of New Orleans style jass record, that would be awesome!!!

    Wow. This song completely melted my built-up rage at Chase bank (another story). As a dormant musician (wife / kids / job / etc), I agree that you don't hear much like this these days. My first impression was, "this is, lyrically and vocally, as strong as mid-late 80's Sting". My next thought was, "I hope they keep me on hold longer". Lastly, I thought, "the chorus is great, but on the next pass I would change the vocal melody to this (humming to myself)" - and then it was sung exactly as I had imagined. Fantastic.

    I am the writer and singer of Am I , another one of the hold music tunes . I found out about this a while back and called Chase to find out why this was selected and what the source feed was .. No one seemed to know ?
