Farewell Song

lyrics

I don't want to leave you,
but the wind is howling loud
and flowers die off in this kind of cold.
I don't want to leave you,
but what I want hardly matters now.
I'd ask one favour of you:
please grow old.

We swore that we would stand alone together
and I hate to make you a liar,
but I saw this coming all along.
I fear
there's nowhere we can go from here.
Hard to believe that
sometimes, what feels right is wrong.

You say it's tearing you to bits
but you don't know the half of it.
I'm crumbling like paper in the rain.

I don't want to leave you,
but the wind is howling loud
and flowers die off in this kind of cold.
I don't want to leave you,
but what I want hardly matters now.
I'd ask one favour of you:
please grow old.

It's a welcome change for once to have
someone to rely on,
but what happens when it tumbles down?
You don't understand all the fuss
but there's bigger things than both of us.
If all this leaves you breathless,
then I'd rather you keep breathing.

You say it's tearing you in two
but you should know this tears me too.
I'm burning like dry fields set alight.

Your reckless days and sleepless nights,
I watched them as your satellite.
We danced around each other like
nothing could come between.
The only part I've come to hate:
it came with an expiry date.
The things we want forever
couldn't last a century.

I don't want to leave you.
Why can't I just stay in your arms
just a moment longer?
What's the harm?

I don't want to leave you
but what I want hardly matters now.
I'd ask one favour of you,
so if it's at all in your power,
please grow old.

Please grow old.

I don't want to leave you
but what I want hardly matters now.
I'd ask one favour of you.
