"Upon My Departure" as written by and J. Vera J. Duncan....
When the final bell is rung
And the game's declared over
We speak the words goodbye
And I know it's forever
An empty pit inside my chest
Was more than a small clue
No you'll never see me again
Something I gotta get used to
But you left much behind
Some peace and vital signs
Food for a busy mind
And souvenirs to hold tight

Just a passenger on your jetliner
Crashing to the ground
But the impact doesn't make a sound

Well a lesson to be learned
From your departure
Funny thing but when you went away
I lost part of my cure
And now I'm searching hard
Underneath every card
Hoping with best regards
You'll bail me out of this dream state

Oh but what I feel
Unfortunately is real
Feeling the sting of pain
Not a damn thing can erase the stain

    General CommentOne of the most beautiful metal songs ever written. Bush's voice is so amazing. I think it's about someone saying their last goodbye to someone they'll never see again.


    Oh but what I feel
    Unfortunately is real
    Feeling the sting of pain
    Not a damn thing can erase the stain

    I'm leaving here
    And you’ll know why when I'm gone
    I'm leaving here
    Translate your knowledge through this song
    I wont forget
    Why our words were meant to mesh
    Why I’m glad we shared a glass
    I gave something to your soul
    And you gave me more than you’ll ever know

    Are my senses clear?
    Do I feel it here?
    Sometimes the past is insincere



    Amazing
