Fare thee well

(after Byron)

Fare thee well and if forever
Then forever - fare thee well
Though unforgiving, never
gainst thee will my heart rebel

Whenever the hard-rain comes
Whenever the bad luck runs
Whenever lightning strikes
When you’re alone at night

I will be there
By your side
yes, I will be there
By your side

However the sun may shine
However the daylight blinds
However the days go by
When you are out of sight

I will be there
By your side
yes, I will be there
By your side

Fare thee well and if forever
Then forever - fare thee well
Though unforgiving, never
gainst thee will my heart rebel
