CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Goodbye Love 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 sh*t
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
(Mimi runs away, Collins is booted from the funeral hame when he can't pay the bill. Benny offers to pay; then he and
Collins go drinking. Mark stays behind to prepare for his meeting with "Buzzline".)
