"Departure" as written by Jesse Quin and Timothy James Rice-oxley....
I can sense departure in the air
Now it's only the past that we share
Divided at a parting of the road
Where I can ride on or lighten the load

I've been dreaming of a town where the lost and found and wrong-way-round are bound for departure
I've been comfortably numb, but a change is gonna come like a storm
Driving down through the streets from Mt. Desolation's peak to make you pure for departure

Lover, we have fought and we have laughed
At every obstacle thrown in our path
But things have got to change before I crack
Before I get so lost I can't get back

I've been dreaming of a town where the lost and found and wrong-way-round are bound for departure
I woke up at the mouth of a river in the south of this land
Where the tide and the stones strip the troubles from your bones and make you glad of departure

I'll treasure til I'm dead everything that we have said and done
But the voice in my head is telling me I best me moving on
'Cause the decent folk don't want me
Everywhere my missteps haunt me
But the fears that always stalk me, seem to fade away

When I start dreaming of a town where the lost and found and wrong-way-round are bound for departure
I woke up at the mouth of a river in the south of this land
Where the tide and the stones strip the troubles from your bones and make you glad of departure

The death of love, it's nothing to be scared of, it's just a light switching off
