Plinky prompts some 'Lunatica'

Struggling for inspiration today I had a look at the topics Plinky were suggesting. One of today's prompts was: 'What songs must you always sing the lyrics out loud to?'. As I read this prompt I was singing my lungs out to one my my favourite songs and decided that this had to be fate.

The song I was singing was Lunatica's 'Farewell My Love'. When I first heard this track on their 2009 album 'New Shores', I had to do a double take. It reminds me so much of a big love song in a Disney Princess movie. This song is bittersweet and beautiful. The male/female vocals are perfectly balanced and the lyrics really touch you. This song is one I always love listening to in the car on a long trip or when I am feeling really down and lonely. There is something I can relate to in there. Something I think everyone can relate to. It is without a doubt the song I must always sing the lyrics out loud to.



I've been feeling so uncertain
Since the day you left my life
Now I'm standing at the crossroads
No direction left to go

I've been thinking 'bout the good times
And I've cried a lake of tears
If losing you is just a nightmare
I hope I wake up by your side

Farewell my love
Forgive the things I've done to you
May your days be warm and bright
May your journey lead you to the light

So many words been left unspoken
And some words were far too much
Maybe sometimes love is hurting
But it's the sweetest pain I know

Farewell my love
Forgive the things I've done to you
May your days be warm and bright
May your journey lead you to the light

Farewell my love
Forgive the things I've done to you
May your days be warm and bright
May your journey lead you to the light

Ooh, farewell my love
(my love/goodbye)
Forgive the things I've done to you
May your days be warm and bright
May your journey lead you to the light
(to the light)
