12. The Parting Glass

by We Are Messengers


Pre- song
Iím not a perfect man
Not even a good man
But Iím not the sum of my mistakes
Or the sum of all the good things I have done

The truth lies somewhere between the two
But I am a man who has been loved well
Both by God and by His family

And Iím a grateful man
So friends
Walk slow
Go easy
And love well

Of all the money that I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I ever did
Alas it was to none but me

And all Iíve done for want of wit
To memory now I canít recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that I had
Theyíre sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that I had
Theyíd wish me one more day to stay

But since it fell
Into my lot
That I should rise
And you should not

Iíll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

Pre-song by Darren Mulligan
