"To Bid You Farewell" as written by Mikael Lars Akerfeldt and Sven Peter Malcolm Lindgren....
I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came, you lied
Embracing us over autumn's proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice, I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness, I lumber
In my own ashes, I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered "I know"

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?

Why can't you see that I try?
When every tear I shed, is for you
