about

This song concerns leaving.

My daughter Ruby Wellen co-wrote the music. My other daughter Sophie Wellen sang back up vocals.

lyrics

When I look into your face
And try to see what’s out of place
You took the flowers from the vase
And you threw them away

I thought I loved you yesterday
But that was just the Cabernet
Now we’ll go our separate ways
We’re so far apart

It was nice to have you here
Now it’s time to disappear

So Long
Until we meet again
So Long
To make it to the end

When I look into your eyes
And see departure crystallize
Now it’s time for our goodbyes
It’s a bientot

I hope I haven’t set you back
Please don’t bother to unpack

So Long
Until we meet again
So Long
To make it to the end

I would trek around the globe
For the glimpse of your smile
I’ll keep you in my sweetest dreams
If only for a while

So Long
(I’m already gone)
So Long

So Long
(I’m already gone)
Until we meet again
(I’m already gone)
So Long
To make it to the end
