Within Temptation - Our Farewell Lyrics

In my hands
A legacy of memories
I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Never thought
This day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not at my side
But there's nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

So sorry your world is tumbling down
I will watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep
Because my child, this not our farewell.
This is not our farewell.

Within Temptation Our Farewell Comments
  1. m ;

    В ръцете ми наследство от спомени
    In my hands a legacy of memories

    Чувам да казваш името ми
    I can hear you say my name

    Почти виждам усмивката ти
    I can almost see your smile

    Усетете топлината на прегръдката си
    Feel the warmth of your embrace

    Но сега няма нищо друго освен тишина
    But there is nothing but silence now

    Около този, когото обичах
    Around the one I loved

    Това ни е сбогом?
    Is this our farewell?
    Сладка скъпа, притесняваш се твърде много
    Sweet darling you worry too much

    Детето ми, виж тъгата в очите ти
    My child, see the sadness in your eyes

    Не си сам в живота
    You are not alone in life

    Въпреки че може да си мислите, че сте
    Although you might think that you are
    Никога не съм мислил, че този ден ще дойде толкова скоро
    Never thought this day would come so soon

    Нямахме време да се сбогуваме
    We had no time to say goodbye

    Как светът може просто да продължи?
    How can the world just carry on?

    Чувствам се толкова изгубена, когато не си до мен
    I feel so lost when you are not by my side

    Но сега няма нищо друго освен тишина
    But there is nothing but silence now

    Около този, когото обичах
    Around the one I loved

    Това ни е сбогом?
    Is this our farewell?
    Толкова съжалявам, че светът ти се разпада
    So sorry your world is tumbling down

    Ще те гледам през тези нощи
    I will watch you through these nights

    Отпуснете главата си и отидете да спите
    Rest your head and go to sleep

    Защото моето дете това не е нашето сбогом
    Because my child this is not our farewell

    Това не е нашето сбогом
    This is not our farewell

  8. Jonathan Olenzak

    I lost my mom when me and my brother were three years old. The last time I saw her, I was six months old. I never had a chance to talk to her or reunite with her. If I hadn't started my behavioral problems, I would've had a normal life. RIP, mom. We will meet again someday.

    Those words helped some of the healing and I needed to hear it.

  17. Scott McPhee

    I lost my mother 2 july 2019 and today it is exacly one month ago and ...i put this song on and the tears came like water from my eyes. its like she's talking to me through this song. Its a warm feeling and i have also a feeling of finelly can make a farewell cuse it was not possible before she died. Its a really good song its a piece of art to make a song that makes that kind of feelings. (sorry for my bad english). And Within Temptation is one of my fav bands, because i feel the lyrics and the music in my heart. Greetings.

  30. Amanda McCormick

    7 years ago I lost my brother and sister (who was 28 weeks pregnant) to a car accident. They say it gets easier as time goes on but it doesn't. Not for me. It gets worse. This is what everyone tells me when I try to talk to them about it... "It's been 7 years and you should be over it by now"... no, no I'm not over it and I'm never going to be over it. 😭😭

  35. Sephira Skye

    This song resonates so deeply with me... it’s exactly how I feel about losing my father. It’s been three years and it still hurts so badly. Maybe one day I will be able to listen to this song without crying, but I know it won’t be any time soon. I miss you, Dad. I love you forever. ❤️

  36. Stephen Smith

    Have loved this song for years.

  37. Mrs. V Hedlund

    This is for my dear Russian. He is not dead but these days with him were the best I had in years. He made me realize world was wrong not me. I shared so many laughter with him and sudden moments of sweet love... Between friends. Now he is leaving my country forever to keep his journey of going around the globe. He hasn't left yet but he will soon. He is flawless to me. I love getting lost in his blue eyes or in his arms. When he told me the departure date my heart broke into pieces. But this is not our farewell. I will find you one day. I swear I will find you.

  38. Yacinta Jakobs

    For all the children of the world

    Dieses Lied ist das Lied zu dem Kapitel "Ein Aufglimmern von Wärme und Licht eines Herzens", als Coraline ein zweites Mal in der Schneewelt ist und den Mann mit den glasigen Augen vor sich entdeckt - Blut gefriert in ihren Adern. Muss ich noch schreiben.

  52. Rebecca Cortez

    My thanks to all who get the message of the song. I lost my father 11 years ago and this song has soothed me a lot. Sharon thank you for helping me comfort myself.

    Tearrific D

    You're as lucky as I am having found this music at a young age, it helps to have music that brings you down to face your sadness every now and again so that you can process these terrible life events like the loss of friends and family. Wish you well!

  88. meisrain

    I lost my father 4 year ago.

  89. Chelsea Donnelly

    [my face and not my heart is still]

  90. Maria Victoria Perez

    Very beautiful song... And Sharon's voice makes it even more emotional...

  91. Chrissie Anne

    I lost my sister in a assassinated car crash.Before her death,she just called me and told me that she'll be homed soon.But she never came.She left without giving me a chance to say goodbye.All of it happened just too fast and I still can't get over it.

  92. Martina Solari

    This song reminds me of my aunt :(

  93. Awesome Aaron

    just my opinion but I think our world would be a little better if people listened to this kind of music more than pop and rap.

    Aeris Akamatsu

    We can listen to both.

    Maxzilla Prime

    Old pop was sic. But rap ugh!. Don't get me started on it.

    Angry Yordle

    there is good rap out there. Eminem for example raps a TON about dealing with extreme emotions like love, anger, sadness, depression and anxiety (Mockingbird, Legacy, Lose yourself, Kim, Stan, Love the way you lie, cleaning out my closet etc etc etc)
    Also there is music that is more about impressing than entertaining and there is rap like that too. An example would be Tech N9ne's "Worldwide Choppers" that has a bunch of incredibly talented rappers perform on an absolutely insane level (like my-lips-cant-move-that-quickly level, accompanied by difficult rhythm), Eminems "Rap god" is another great example.
    I dont listen to rap that often tbh. The most important mistake people like you make is that you think you know like everybody works and you know the reason why everybody that listens to rap does so. You are absolutely ignorant to the fact that not everybody works the same and not every rap/pop fan is an asshole and not every rock/ballade fan is a saint. Guess what: peoples character traits dont get decided by what music they listen to.

  94. Hannah Browning

    I felt like this about the season finale of supernatural 😭😭😭😭

  95. John Steerman

    alot of their music is meaningful and she sings it in such a manner that it has been years since i have cried for personal reasons but i hear half the songs from this band and almost start crying but crying is for the weak so there is that but that is a opinion of mine

    Tearrific D

    Most of your comment is correct except for crying being weak. It's vital to face your emotions in order to process them and heal yourself, if you don't you will eventually become dull and get stuck in life. Hope you'll realize that and I hope you're alright ;)

  96. Amy Hill

    I still remember the day I lost my three legged kitten. I had to put her down. This brings tears to my eyes.
