Song Lyric Sunday 1/28/18 – goodbye/farewell

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday involves the topic of goodbyes and farewells. I posted this song as a reboot in memory of desertcurmudgeon’s loss of an animal companion. This song speaks to how the ones we love never really leave us. I give you the song After Image from the album Grace Under Pressure.

Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson
Lyrics: Neil Peart

Suddenly —
You were gone
From all the lives
You left your mark upon

I remember —
How we talked and drank
Into the misty dawn
— I hear the voices

We ran by the water
On the wet summer lawn
— I see the foot prints
I remember —

— I feel the way you would
— I feel the way you would

Tried to believe
But you know it’s no good
This is something
That just can’t be understood

I remember —
The shouts of joy
Skiing fast through the woods
— I hear the echoes

I learned your love for life
I feel the way that you would
— I feel your presence
I remember —

I feel the way you would
This just can’t be understood…
