Portal 2 Ending Song: Want You Gone by Jonathan Coulton Video and Lyrics

Surprise! Portal 2 ends with a song! Actually, I was kidding just there about the "surprise" part. After the success of Jonathan Coulton's "Still Alive," and the ensuing rise in cake sales, it only makes sense that there would be a follow-up by the Portal songsmith.

See, this information falls into the category of "general knowledge." I want to make that clear so you won't be mad at me when I tell you the title to the Portal 2 ending song is "Want You Gone." I know, I know: that's a pretty vague title; however, the song is a lot like the title in that it too contains vague references to things you might not want to know about if you're not done with the game. The song and the credits make perfect sense if you've beaten the game, of course.

This is a lot of explaination for a pretty straightforward concept: the video of the song and the lyrics for the song are posted below, after the jump. If you haven't beaten the game and you want to hear the song, then by all means, watch it, but make no bones about it: there are references to things you shouldn't know about. Plus, don't forget that one of the joys of completing all of those mindbending puzzles is getting to hear the song, so it spoils it for you in that way too.

If you've already beaten the game, congratulations! Why not reward yourself by listening to the song over and over again?

Portal 2 Ending Song "Want You Gone" Lyrics by Jonathan Coulton

Well, here we are again.
It's always such a pleasure.
Remember when you tried
to kill me twice?
Oh, how we laughed and laughed.
Except I wasn't laughing.
Under the circumstances,
I've been shockingly nice.

You want your freedom?
Take it.
That's what I'm counting on.

I used to want you dead,
now, I only want you gone.

She was a lot like you,
(Maybe not quite as heavy)
Now little Caroline is in here too.

One day they woke me up,
So I could Live forever.
It's such a shame the same
Will never happen to you.

You've got your
Short sad
Life left
That's what I'm counting on.
I'll let you get right to it.
Now, I only want you gone.

Goodbye my only friend.
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny
If it weren't so sad.
Well, you have been replaced.
I don't need anyone now.
When I delete you maybe
I'll stop feeling so bad.

Go make some new disaster.
That's what I'm counting on.
You're someone else's problem
Now, I only want you gone.
Now, I only want you gone.
Now, I only want you gone.

What do you think? Is it as good as "Still Alive"?
