about

My parting glass song. A sharing of good times with good friends, so important, for who knows what lies ahead

lyrics

Let’s have another drink
To give me time to think
I know I cannot stay much longer
And the comfort that we feel
Was never here for real
And come the light of day we’ll all be gone

Chorus
‘Cos they’ve got us all pretending
That this world is never-ending
And there’s nothing really left worth fighting for
And tonight you’ll be me friend
Pledge life until the end
Let’s have another glass before we go

Let’s have another drink
By this fire while I think
And sit amongst you all to keep me warm
It’s not often I’m afraid
But I can see the day coming
When all the nights and friends and drinks are gone

Chorus

Let’s have another drink
well it makes you think
I remember falling in love
And everything was changed
it could never be the same
let’s have another glass before we go

Chorus

Let’s have another drink
now I just don’t want to think
there’s nothing to be done to make us stay
and the comfort that we feel
was never here for real
we’ll all be gone come the light of day

Chorus

Let’s have another drink before we go
