The Kills - The Last Goodbye


The Kills celebrate their ten year anniversary this poignant and playful video for 'The Last Goodbye', taken from their latest album 'Blood Pressures'. Directed by the Oscar nominated actress Samantha Morton, who made her directorial feature debut with the critically acclaimed 'The Unloved', this is her first music video. 
Shot in monochrome on crisp, silvery 35mm, the video reflects the beautiful simplicity of the track, with an old-school photo booth providing an intimate backdrop for Mosshart's intense and heart-warming opening performance followed by a series of touching to-camera poses reflecting the musicians' longstanding, spirited friendship.




It's the last goodbye I swear
I can't rely on a dime a day love that don't go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can't get by on an odds and ends love that don't ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart
I won't forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where
Can't quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don't say anything
It's the last goodbye I swear
I can't survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole
