Yoko Ono – Goodbye Sadness (1981)

Scroll down to content

Season of Glass is a 1981 album by Yoko Ono, her first solo recording after the murder of her husband John Lennon. The album was released less than six months after Lennon’s death and deals with it directly in songs such as “Goodbye Sadness” and “I Don’t Know Why”. Season of Glass charted at number 49, making it Ono’s highest-charting solo album to date. The front cover features Lennon’s bloodstained glasses positioned next to a half-filled glass of water, with a view of Central Park in the background. A young Sean Lennon features on the track “Even When You’re Far Away”, recounting a story his father used to tell him. A music video was created for “Goodbye Sadness” featuring footage of John and Yoko together. The video was screened on the first episode of Saturday Night Live’s seventh season.

Goodbye Sadness, goodbye..goodbye..
I don’t need you anymore.
I wet my pillow every night,
But now I saw the light.

Goodbye, goodbye, sadness,
I don’t need you anymore.
Goodbye, goodbye, sadness,
I can’t take it anymore.

Goodbye Sadness, goodbye, goodbye,
I don’t need you anymore.
I lived in fear ev’ry day,
But now I’m going my way.

Goodbye, goodbye sadness,
I don’t need you anymore.
Goodbye, goodbye, sadness,
I can’t take it anymore.

Hello Happiness, wherever you are,
I hope you hear my song.
Never want to cry again
Or hold my breath in fear again.

Goodbye, goodbye, sadness,
I don’t need you anymore.
Goodbye, goodbye, sadness,
I can’t take it anymore..

    1. I think you are right. This it what it says on Wikipedia: “A music video was created for “Goodbye Sadness” featuring footage of John and Yoko together. The video was screened on the first episode of Saturday Night Live’s seventh season.”
