"In Passing" as written by Leena Johanna Salomaa, Leena Johanna Salomaa and Rory Winston....
Little sister,
Playing Hide and Seek
Even though Mama told you I'm really gone
If you miss me
Sneak a peek at my diary
Or read the Peek-a-boo sky that lights the night

I'll say this once:

Light up the night, stardust!
When it hurts inside
Read all the signs
Follow

It's okay to feel down
And just remember
That nothing's made to last
I know you're sad
That too will pass, that too will pass

In passing

Little sister
Ignore local news
Papers come from trees we'll never climb
What a joke!
They made me look so sad
That bad bad lake's okay: It washed my hair

And the water said:

Light up the night, stardust!
When it hurts inside
Read all the signs
Follow

It's okay to feel down
And just remember
That nothing's made to last
I know you're sad
That too will pass, that too will pass
That too will pass, that too will pass

You'll recall all that
Till one day
You too will pass

    My InterpretationIt tells the story of two sisters. The oldest one kills herself because she felt depressed for something, and before her death, she writes to the youngest a letter, telling her that if she feels sad, she hasn't to worry about it, because one day it will pass.
    A very beautiful and sad song.
