"Be Good or Be Gone" as written by and Fionn Regan....
If you happen to read this, Rose was born
Child actress, on the fifth day of the snow
Be good or be gone
Be good or be, be gone

The range is staggering, movement and timing
Frame by frame it did unfold
Be good or be gone
Be good or be, be gone

I'll read to you on Saturdays, museum has closed down
Sell all your things at the end of the drive
Be good or be gone
Be good or be, be gone

I have become an aerial view
Of a coastal town that you once knew
Be good or be gone
Be good or be, be gone

    General Comment"the last verse is the singer showing us how he feels his life has been sort of swallowed and shadowed by hers, failed though it was. like all he really is now is a storyteller of her life, an aerial view. also this verse gives the feeling rose has passed on and hes left alone now and feeling alone and empty."

    nitai, i agree about that. i wasnt sure how but i did get the feeling he was something not as meaningful or significant to rose, perhaps he has become a symbol of her old life, just because when he is around, she gets to retell and remember her past?
    i dont agree about the lover idea though, i see rose as a much older lady who has possibly passed away.
