The gentle tingling on my window pane
Reminds me of lost memories, tonight.

Loves, relatives, schoolmates and friends:
They're all gone
Gone deep in the land of darkness, in the land of past
Where they'll stay
Forever.

Dad, I lost your face and, Grandad, you are still smiling
Some friends of mine lie in their cold graves
Taken by illness, chosen or real
And I'll never meet them again.

Miss, your words sound clear, and Sir, you do look old enough
One friend of mine lies in his cold bed
Taken by madness, chosen or real
And I'll never meet him again.

Acquaintances, strangers, schoolmasters and akin:
They're all gone
Gone deep in the land of darkness, in the land of past
Where they'll stay
Forever.

Farewell, to you all!
I'll never meet you again.
Farewell to you all!
I'll never think of you again.
