Lyrics

Come the weekend, we'll go fishing
spend the whole night by the water
and in the evening, we'll build a fire and in its light, we'll talk til morning

May all your friends be artists
as I take my leave of you
your heart be always open to another point of view
may your voice be fair and artful, your argument be strong
and may I sometimes walk beside you
when I'm a long time gone

We'll remember days in London
sometimes grey, sometimes sunny
we'll watch the sparks like moments dancing
sometimes sad, sometimes funny

May all your friends be artists
as I take my leave of you
your heart be always open to another point of view
may your voice be fair and artful, your argument be strong
and may I sometimes walk beside you
when I'm a long time gone
