Well, in a temporary place in contemporary times
And everybody needs to know
That nothing lasts forever so as long as we're together
We can let each other go, oh

Follow the waters that parted
Whatever gets you through
Let go, the dearly departed
Life wasn't right for you

We'll have a hell of a time getting lectured by a mime
And learning what a fool should know
He said as long as you remember how to fight when you surrender
You could have your very own show, oh

Follow the waters that parted
Whatever gets you through
Let go, the dearly departed
Life wasn't right for you

And in the window of the night, somebody's turning out the lights
And making sure the moon can glow
But at the opening of day as the light is on the way
Somebody's making sure to make it so, oh

Follow the waters that parted
Whatever gets you through
Let go, the dearly departed
Life wasn't right for you
