Our farewell by Within Temptation

by CJ
(Ohio, USA)

I live next door to a funeral home and have been asked by the funeral director to help work with him and the grieving families to create electronic tributes. One family lost a mother. Her daughter, a teenager, implored me to use this song in the tribute. I agreed and the family loved it. I thought people here would appreciate it.


Lyrics

Singer 1
In my hands
A legacy of memories
I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Singer 2
Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Singer 1
Never thought
This day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not at my side
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Singer 2
Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Singer 1 and 2
So sorry your world is tumbling down
I'll watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep

Singer 2
Because my child, this is not our farewell.
This is not our farewell.
