Listenin' to the wind and the sound of my own grieving like some lonely banshee cry; and looking back at my whole life, so many things I'll never know the reason why. How could you say Good-bye?
Waking from a restless sleep, the morning dew still in my eyes I call your name; no matter how I try it seems I cannot find my dreams or myself again. I wonder why you came.
Shining on the day the sun relentlessly intrudes upon the dark I feel; there's a fog horn out at sea, something that's calling out to me, but it's not real. It says: Let go and you will heal. -How could you say good bye? -Let go and you will heal! How could you leave? Let go and you will heal! How could you say good-by; how could you leave me now? How could you? Let go and you will .... heal.

The Irish folklore - the banshee and it's cry - foretells death. We often fear the worst, and all we need to do is let go. I learned that; - and this song came to me to express it.
