"A Song For Departure" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
And all the masks I carry on my face
For you, for another
Some calm and then some grace
But once within a long and broken night
A face like mine, bereft of dreams and white

This is a song, this is a song
A song for a departure
This is a song
This is a song, this is a song
A song to take you homewards
This is a song

Maybe this strangeness only ever was
To hide ourselves from some kind of happiness
But always the moment it just seems to stay
Tearing it off like so many calendar days

This is a song, this is a song
A song for a departure
This is a song
This is a song, this is a song
A song to break your heart to
This is a song

This is a song, this is a song
A song for broken lovers
This is a song
This is a song, this is a song
A song to take you homewards
This is a song
This is a song, this is a song
A song to break your heart to
This is a song

    General CommentProbably the best song off the great and hugly underrated Lifeblood album.A beautiful and a very tender song about breaking free from the masks we put on our faces for people to accept us and to simply fit in the mould.

    General Commentreminds me a little of california dreaming. But no way the best song off lifeblood, I'd say the best are 1985, empty souls, and to repel ghosts.
