Goodbye To Romance Lyrics

Ozzy Osbourne
Goodbye To Romance

Yesterday has been and gone
Tommorow will I find the sun
Or will it rain
Everybody's having fun
Except me, I'm the lonely one
I live in shame

I say goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I...

    It's about getting fired from Sabbath. He was devistaved. Didn't know what he was going to do and strung out on drugs.thank God Sharon came into his life. Blizzard of Oz is a excellent comeback album

    A person that has been in a relationship with someone and finds out that the person they love was cheating on em and didn't care about that person at all sort of my idea anyway

    i think it is about his leaving black sabbath and the death of his freind and guitarist randy rhoads and his personal problems he was going through at the time... quote goodbye to freinds i tell you goodbye to all the past i guess that we'll meet we'll meet in the end

    Comment...June 10 1:19. Mate nice effort but way off the mark.

    Comment...July 12 10:03. A lot warmer but it has nothing to do with his marriage to Sharon. This record was released on the Sept 20 1980 and they were not married until July 4 1982.

    As you would know by reading "I Am Ozzy", that Ozzy was devastated when he was booted out of Sabbath. It was his whole life. The song is about the fact that he is now back on his feet and he has to face facts that Sabbath was now his past and it's time to move on. The song is more of a letting go and mental therapy for him. The line "I guess we will meet in the end" is just that meaning that one day all things will washed under the bridge and we will be back together. Whether as Sabbath or just friends, I don't know. As he admitted in his book, Ozzy is very superstitious so I'm sure that would have played a factor.

    first off, i love this song. beautiful. fell in love with it first time i heard it. my interpretation of Goodbye to Romance is that he just wants to get away from everything. if you read ozzy's book "i am ozzy" you'll read that he had some of these lyrics in his head for a few months after he was kicked out of Black Sabbath. i think he's saying that he's going to leave the past behind and just look forward. that he'll continue on with his life, y'know? i think part of the reason he got the lyrics into his head was because his relationship with his wife wasn't going too well and he felt like he was going to be saying goodbye to that and then when he had to leave his band he felt like he had to say goodbye to his friends. so when he says "i guess that we'll meet in the end" he's saying there will be other lovers and other friends. i'm guessing when he says "i've been the king, i've been the clown" that he's had some real good parts of his life but also some pretty crummy parts. that's my interpretation without getting too far into it...

    I think its about a person coming to terms with life, or deciding he should go through with a suicide. The lines in the chorus especially, "Goodbye to romance, goodbye to friends, goodbye to all the past. I guess that we'll meet in the end" sounds like a suicide letter saying goodbye to it all. And the outro, "The weathers lookin fine, and I think the sun will shine again" It means he's looking hopeful toward the end of his life.. Just my thought

    In 1980 Bob Daisley was recruited by Ozzy Osbourne to join the singer's new band, originally called Blizzard of Ozz, however when the album was actually released, it was credited to Osbourne alone and Blizzard of Ozz became merely the title of the album. Daisley contributed bass and backing vocals as well as SONGWRITING ON 8 OF THE 9 TRACKS. He also played and WROTE MOST OF THE MATERIAL on the follow-up album Diary of a Madman but both he and drummer Lee Kerslake were fired before the album was released. Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge appeared in their place in the artwork and credits of that album's original pressing. Daisley and Kerslake successfully sued Osbourne in 1986 to have their songwriting and performance credits reinstated on both those recordings and this was reflected on post-1986 pressings. Litigation with regards to these albums continued in 2002 when Daisley and Kerslake once again sued Osbourne for unpaid royalties for their contributions, however Osbourne responded to this by deleting the original recordings and re-issuing new versions with the bass and drum tracks re-recorded by Robert Trujillo and Mike Bordin.

    In 1983 however, Daisley went back to working with Osbourne, with whom he would continue to write and record throughout the 1980s, playing on and WRITING ALL THE LYRICS for Bark at the Moon and CONTRIBUTING MOST OF THE LYRICS for The Ultimate Sin (for which he was also originally uncredited) in 1986. In spite of his suit against Osbourne that year, Daisley maintained his working relationship with him up until 1991's No More Tears which featured his bass playing despite the presence of Mike Inez (who later joined Alice in Chains) in the album's promotional videos.
