Would you join a slow marching band?
as the ferry sails and tears are dried

And join together in the passing
in sorrows neverlasting.
Take a hand and take a bow.
oh, and never mind the words:

Don't say goodbye, love. I won't remind you.
Dream of me as the nights draw cold
You paid the piper and called the tune

You played for me; that's all for now,
just hum along and keep on going.
Walk on slowly don't look behind you.
Walk on slowly don't look behind you.
