Listen to this farewell song:
For those of you being left behind by someone you treasure.
The song is about making meaning of your place in the world while everyone else moves forward in their lives.
An atmospheric piano-rock and synthesiser song.
Other songs like this one:
Closing Time - Semisonic
Rock ballad with mid-tempo piano intro. Starts similar to Green Day "Good Riddance" with more energetic heavy guitar sounds for most of the song. The songs feel very accepting the paths that life takes us on - that leaving is a fact of life - however the song is in fact about being born.
Time of my life - David Cook
Also a power-ballad. This song is about making the most of the moment and enjoying success to the fullest.
School's Out - Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper's classic hard rock/heavy metal end-of-school anthem was his answer to the question, "What's the greatest three minutes of your life?".
His reply? "The last three minutes of the last day of school when you're sitting there and it's like a slow fuse burning...If we can catch that three minutes in a song, it's going to be so big."
The song has been used so many times in movies, tv shows and commercials, with numerous different versions, that we can safely say that those three minutes were successfully captured!
