"Splendor" as written by Anthony Gonzalez, Brad Laner and Justin Meldal-johnsen....
What have we to show?
Barren feelings and dust for crow
We can't ever know
When it's time to go

That's the way to see the end
Glowing out along the river bend
It's not goodbye my only friend
Yesterday started over again

    General Commentsome of the lyrics are wrong. i edited them, hoping they go through soon. anyway, i think it's pretty obvious this song is about dying, or the death of a loved one, and possibly not having the chance to say goodbye. the line "we can't ever know when it's time to go" makes me thing of this, but could also be seen from a religious perspective as the rapture, or as aliens taking us home. either way, this song is very hopeful to me. not really the lyrics, but the music - especially toward the end. it makes me happy :)
