Farewell Professor

Afterimage (from the RUSH album Grace Under Pressure, 1984) lyrics by Neil Peart Suddenly — You were gone From all the lives You left your mark upon I remember — How we talked and drank Into the misty dawn — I hear the voices We ran by the water On the wet summer lawn — I see the foot prints I remember — — I feel the way you would — I feel the way you would Tried to believe But you know it’s no good This is something That just can’t be understood I remember — The shouts of joy Skiing fast through the woods — I hear the echoes I learned your love for life I feel the way that you would — I feel your presence I remember — I feel the way you would This just can’t be understood… ******** These lyrics are fitting, as Neil wrote them in remembrance of Robbie Whelan, a friend who died in a car crash at the age of 31. Robblie was an engineer at Le Studio in Quebec and worked on several of Rush's albums, most notably Moving Pictures and Signals .
