The Ones We Are Leaving Behind

lyrics

Oh blessed are the ones who are leaving behind
the strong and the weak, oh, the mean and the kind;
All the wandering ways of that suffering mind -
Oh I bless all the ones who will leave that behind.

There comes a long winter and your poor heart may break
When you fail to remember love is not yours to take
Still you cannot decide when to break, when to bind
Let us bless all the ones we are leaving behind

RF:
Oh blessed are the ones who are leaving behind
the strong and the weak, oh, the mean and the kind;
All the wandering ways of that suffering mind -
Oh I bless all the ones who will leave that behind.

There’s no song to be sung, there’s no story to tell
Raise your full bitter cups to the many who fell
in the glorious ways of our pitiful kind -
Oh bless all the ones we are leaving behind

RF

Who will stay here forever? Who’ll be asking for more?
This morning looks new but I’ve seen it before -
the deep of the sea and the blue mountain’s height
Bless you, all my good fellows, I leave no one behind.

RF
