Goodbye To You

Since no one is reading on Thanksgiving anyway, let’s serve up one of those song posts that no one cares about. As is often the case, this is a break-up song. We have relationships with these games, their communities, and our guilds, sometimes far more emotionally involved and dramatic than our romantic entanglements.

This one goes out to all of you in on-again, off-again relationships with your game of choice. You just keep going back to him, don’t you, no matter how abusive the relationship may be? At some point, you have to accept that the dream has died and move on, no matter how much time you have invested. That investment is never going to pay off. Don’t worry; you’ll find a new infatuation to keep you company, and here is Michelle Branch to sympathize while you’re on the rebound.

I’ve been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I’m hearing are starting to get old
It feels like I’m starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend
And I said

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything that I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold onto

Buffy fans may recognize this from the end of “Tabula Rasa,” an entirely appropriate use of the song.

  1. I came here expecting to read a “Goodbye Cruel Blog” post and was ready to reassure you that you will be missed.

    Ah well glad to hear you aren’t quitting Zubon. Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

  2. And here I though you were going to mention the song by 80’s pop group Scandal, it’s equally applicable.

    Could I have loved someone like the one I see in you
    I remember the good times baby now, and the bad times too
    These last few weeks of holding on
    The days are dull, the nights are long
    Guess it’s better to say

    Goodbye to you
