                                      .:ABOUT:.
==============================================================================

As taken from http://www.poetsofthefall.com

The story behind the song "Late Goodbye" in the computer game Max Payne 2, is
simply as follows. "The guys from Remedy had heard our music before and asked
us to write a song for the game. Happily we complied. Sam Lake sent me a poem
he'd written some time ago, and said I could use whatever images the poem
conjured up in my head, to write the lyrics. This was great since it really
worked to inspire me. I sat on my kitchen floor that night, with my guitar,
and wrote the song".

I was one of those people who happened to like the song and really wanted to
be able to listen to it whenever I wanted with out having to open the game
and play the credits. Now so can you!

The Janitor sings and listens to it. (In 2 different levels)
Mona sings it in the shower.
A guard whistles it.
Cleaner plays it on the piano.
Promo poster in restaurant.
A guard mentions it in appartments, says it's his favorite.
The end credits.

                                     .:LYRICS:.
==============================================================================

In our headlights
staring, bleak
beer cans
deer's eyes

On the asphalt
underneath
our crushed plans
and my lies

Lonely street signs
power lines
they keep on flashing
flashing by

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye

Your breath
hot upon my cheek
and we crossed
that line

You made me strong
when I was feeling weak
and we crossed
that one time

Screaming stop signs
staring wild eyes
keep on flashing
flashing by

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye

The devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us
points at your flaming hair and then we're playin' hide and seek

I can't breathe easy here 'less our trail's gone cold behind us
'til then the John mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak

We keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night
it's a late goodbye
such a late goodbye

And we keep driving into the night...
