lyrics

Through thick & thin
we made it through
my life is rather different
without you
despite the end of our novel
being so tragic
I realize the finer things
I realize the magic
so thank you for your actions
for then I could not sing
these are words of truth
but from heartache do they ring
one point in time
our friendship will rebuild
but for now it will remain
a slight wave from across the guild
our paths are leading
in various places
where I'm sure we'll find
new lovable faces
for new loves to come
I know this is true
but I wouldn't know love
if it weren't for you

So thank you my dear
for giving me the time
unfortunately your love
it robbed me blind
to the wager we made
so many years ago
although it'll never happen
I'd like you to know
that you are adored
from more then one being
your hand in mine
is still what I'm seeing
it may never be
it very well could
until we know for sure
we'll live life as we should
I know I've said a lot
and I know this is true
but I wouldn't be anywhere
if it weren't for you

I try to tell myself otherwise
but its time to move on
in a series of sorrows
this is my swan song
farewell old love
for I truly do miss
that cold march morning
where we first kissed
and like that
it was over
and like that
I'm relieved
but like a red sock
in the white wash
this heart does still bleed
by now I am gone
just a memory past
but your memory in me
forever it'll last
until we meet again
my old true love
my lost best friend
my returning dove
with an olive branch
in your mouth
the ark is afloat
and we're heading south
so strike the match
set this boat aflame
we're performing a viking funeral
for our beloved game

fare the well
fare the well
fare the well
my love
fare the well
fare the well
fare the well
my love
fare the well
fare the well
fare the well
my love
fare the well
ooh
ooh
ooh
fare the well
