  • I can sense departure in the air
    Now its only the past that we share
    Divided at a parting of the road
    Where I could ride on or lighten the load

    Ive been dreaming of a town
    Where the lost and found and wrong way round are bound
    For departure
    Ive been comfortably numb but a change is gonna come
    Like a storm
    Driving down through the streets from mount Desolations peak
    To make you pure for departure
    Uhhh for departure

    Lover we have fought and we have laughed
    At every obstacle thrown in our path
    The things have gotta change before I crack
    Before I get so lost I cant get back

    Ive been dreaming of a town where the lost and found
    And wrong way round are bound for departure
    I woke up at the mouth of a river in the south of this land
    Where the tide and the stones
    Strip the troubles from your bones
    And make you glad of departure

    Ill treasure til Im dead
    Everything we have said and done
    For the voice in my head is telling me Id best be moving on

    Cause the decent folk dont want me
    Everywhere my missteps haunt me

    But the fears that always stalked me
    Seem to fade away

    When I start dreaming of a town where the lost and found
    And wrong way round are bound for departure
    I woke up at the mouth of a river in the south of this land
    Where the tide and the stones strip the troubles from your bones
    And make you glad of departure

    Where the tide and the stones
    Strip the troubles from your bones
    And make you glad of departure

    The death of love, the death of love
    Its nothing to be scared of
    Its just a light switching off Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
