Terry Jacks – Seasons In The Sun lyrics

Goodbye to you
My trusted friend

We've known each other since we were nine or te
Together we've climbed hills and trees

Learned of love and A-B-C's

Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye
My friend
It's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky;
Now that the spring is in the air

Pretty girls are ev'rywhere
Think of me and I'll be there.

We had joy
We had fun

We had seasons in the sun;
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time.

Goodbye
Papa
Please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family;
You tried to teach me right from wrong

Too much wine and too much song

Wonder how I got along.
Goodbye
Papa
It's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky;
Now that the spring is in the air

Little children ev'rywhere
When you'll see them
I'll be there.

We had joy
We had fun

We had seasons in the sun;
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone.

Goodbye
Michelle
My little one

You gave me love and helped me find the sun;
And ev'ry time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye
Michelle
It's hard to die

When all the birds are singing in the sky;

Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers ev'rywhere;
I wish that we could both be there.

We had lives
We had fun

We had seasons in the sun;
But the stars we could reach
Were just star-fish on the beach.

    I think it was a young man, knowing that he was dying from a disease,
    he was reflecting on his childhood friendships, almost to the point of reliving them. He had great sorrow knowing that these days have passed him by. Michelle was a young girl who brought hope to his life. He felt that he didn't measure up to what his father thought that he should be.
    Which made him feel bad. Feels so sad to leave the people and beauty that he felt and seen around him, the children playing, the trees, the birds, even the flowers. He really didn't want to die, but knew that he was going to. And the stars were his own dreams bigger than life.

    This person is saying goodbye to all the people he loves and also says the death is not an easy thing go through. I think he is responsible for the way he is dying and that is why he is kind of suffering and regrating for the things he never did. The teaching is that we all must take advantage of our life and do what we ought to do to enjoy it. Mery, costa rica.

    During the time this song was made, it could be about dying of cancer, although many think of this as a suicide song. However in today's society, many will probably think of this as a song of someone dying of aids. I believe the meaning of the song is to condole a lost love through the fact that whoever is singing the song is already gone, but never forgotten, and telling everyone to remember the time the departed is going to live on in memories, yet soon you (the alive) will be there when the time comes. After writing the meaning, I was thinking that perhaps it may be about a death row inmate, yet I never looked at it that way.

    For years I thought this song was about dying because of the words "It's hard to die". The song was translated from Belgian and maybe something was lost through that process. I was very surprised to find out this song is actually about ending a love relationship and dying to that relationship. The words go on to say "Now that the spring is in the air, Pretty girls are everywhere, Think of me and I'll be there", so it does refer to going on and not actually dying.
    It's funny you think you know a thing and to find out later it is the exact opposite to what you thought it was.
