Lyrics Edit

[Counselor and Biologist]

I remember when I first saw your face
I remember the day, the hour, the place
Now it’s over, I still feel our first embrace
It’s all over, it’s time to say goodbye to... all that was

I remember when you made me feel alive
I remember the passion in our eyes
Now it’s over, I won’t be there when you die
It’s all over, it’s time to say goodbye to... all that was

[Historian]
I know it’s hard, but we have to carry on

[Diplomat]
Convince yourself that we have no other choice

[Historian]
A cold new start, the life we knew is gone

[Diplomat and Historian]
Our world, our lives have been destroyed

[Counselor and Biologist]

I remember when the world was in our hands
I remember the future we had planned
Now it’s over, will you ever understand?
It’s all over, it’s time to say goodbye to...all that was
