"Seasons In The Sun" as written by and Jacques Roman/brel Brel....
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we've climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC's, skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere, think of me and I'll be there
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time
Goodbye Pappa, please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song, wonder how I got along
Goodbye Pappa, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is in the air
Little children everywhere, when you see them I'll be there
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
like the seasons have all gone
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
like the seasons have all gone
Goodbye Rochelle, my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around and get my feet back on the ground
Goodbye Rochelle, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere, I wish that we could both be there
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
were just starfish on a beach
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
were just starfish on a beach
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
like the seasons have all gone
All our lives we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

    General CommentI've never heard this band's version, but I've heard the original and it's a nice but sort of depressing song :-( I'm 98% convinced the whole meaning behind it is the circle of life for obvious reasons. It would be a surprise to me if the meaning is anything else besides death. JMO

    General Commentthis song is just about a guy dying and talking to all his loved ones and telling them his fondest memory with them.
