Swansong By Josh Woodward

DO NOT DELETE!

What is it? This song is featured on Ubuntu starting with version 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. It is included on install and is found on /home/USER/Music* by default. This track is still available on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal in case you missed it on Maverick. It has become part of my music collection – the few I have because I find it too 1990s to keep such a large collection on my computer. I have a dedicated portable music player in case you are wondering. No it is not an iPod but my Android phone plugged to external speakers. Boohoo!

I recommend you listen to the song first. It is an upbeat track with a flowing melody that will “capture your ears” within minutes and will have you humming to the tune of the song in no time. Don’t worry, I have provided the song’s lyrics below so you can start singing correctly instead of mumbling the wrong words.

Song Lyrics (from the Lyrics extension on Banshee)

I never thought I’d see the day
I thought that I had finally moved along
And I had let you go so long ago, so long
This is not, this is not where I belong

So I wait for this shallow itch to pass
And I wait, yeah I wait

Hey hey, I’m ok
I don’t need this anyway, I’m fine
What’s yours and mine
Oh oh, I don’t know
What I was ever hoping I would find
But it’s time for me to leave this all behind

I don’t regret a single thing
I couldn’t say it didn’t feel alright
But I don’t want to stay and I don’t want to fight
All alone, with my foolish appetite

So I wait for this shallow itch to pass
And I wait, yeah I wait

Hey hey, I’m ok
I don’t need this anyway, I’m fine
What’s yours and mine
Oh oh, I don’t know
What I was ever hoping I would find
But it’s time for me to leave this all behind

I don’t have the heart to give away to you again
I don’t have the stomach for it, no one ever wins
We had our fun but I have sung this song to you before
Here’s my last refrain

Hey hey, I’m ok
I don’t need this anyway, I’m fine
What’s yours and mine
Oh oh, I don’t know
What I was ever hoping I would find
But it’s time for me to leave this all behind

 

 

Hey hey, I’m ok
I do not need this anyway, I’m fine
What’s yours and mine
Oh oh, I don’t know
What I was ever hoping I would find
But it’s time for me to leave this all behind
Leave it all behind
