Goodbye my love, I leave tonight,
I know you’re in new hands,
Though I would rather follow you,
That’s not the way that this is planned,
Our destiny will now be watched
by different eyes than mine,
I wish you just the best,
be sure we’ll meet again in time.
By now you’ve found somebody else,
to watch out over you,
Every new face I see wasted here,
it’s breaking me in two,
Maybe I should stay and fight
but my heart calls me away,
To that call I must be true,
you know, that is a father’s way.

I decided long ago,
about the way I feel for you,
but it has made no difference,
they are breaking you in two,
it’s true I swore me to your side,
come sunshine or come snow,
But as your faithful friend
I know, it’s time for me to go.

So goodbye to all the friends I’ve made
I’ll never be too far,
there’s much that I have learned from you,
of gluon, mind and star,
I’m grateful for the times we spent,
and all that we’ve been through,
the place I reached today,
I reached because of you.

Goodbye my love, scientia,
should I one day return,
I’ll no longer be a funds-beggar,
and then the tide will turn,
I know you love me as a friend,
but that’s not enough for me,
your paradigms I’ll shift, and then,
we’ll have a chance, you’ll see.

A Filk on the Filk Song New Horizons by Katja Buchmüller.
Recorded when I played it for the SAT group at IMK-ASF, KIT,
after I signed my contract to move from science to software
development .

The embedded video is compressed down to 5.6 MiB (thanks to
awesome vp9 compression), so it’s suitable to be sent by email:

When you send it by email, your recipients might need a web
browser to play it (until desktop video players catch up with the
new video codecs on the web).

And if you enjoy this song in the EU, please tell your
representatives before June 20 2018 to stop the
bad parts of the copyright reform, so I can continue to do
scientific work in my free time without having to work at a
university. One major part of this is Article 13, which would
require establishing upload filters for social media sites — and
might have stopped me from sharing this song there, if it were
the law today.

The EU Copyright Reform threatens my ability to do research in my
free time, now that I left university to offer a future for my
children. So please help keeping links free (stop Article 11),
data mining for independent researchers legal (stop Article 3),
and automatic upload filters non-mandatory (stop Article 13).
