Lyrics

BEFORE DEPARTURE

Farewell my friends.
Farewell my dear ones.
If I was rude
forgive my weakness.

Goodbye my friends.
Goodbye to evening parties.
Remember me
in the spring.

Work for your bread.
Soon we must leave.
Remember your families,
and work for your children.

I dont need much
and the older I become
I realise
my friendships
will carry me over
any cause of strangeness
and any cause of distance

The friends that last
Will dance one more time with me.

I dont need much,
but this, I need.
