Our Farewell Lyrics

Play "Our Farewell"
on Amazon Music

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?

Sweet darling, you weep too much,...

    I think this song is about a woman who lost her spouse and is singing to their child, telling him or her that they are not alone.

    I think this song is about someone who lost his mother or father.
    The verses are written from the perspective of the child. He or she misses the lost person very much and doesn't know how to live without this person:
    "I feel so lost when you are not at my side"

    You might think the song is about losing your lover, because the text says "Around the one I loved". But then the dead person, who speaks in the refrain and the last paragraph, probably wouldn't call the other one "child".
    The dead person tries to give the grieving one hope by telling that it's not their farewell, but they will see each other again.

    All in all one can get the impression that the dead person somehow was and still is a guardian of the other one, so I think it's a parent.

    A girl's lover died, and she's grieving for him, but she says this isn't the end, and I'll see you in heaven or wherever they go (maybe they were bad).
