Visogero-This is where our Hearts Belong

I studied for two years in Montfort School Yercaud. It was a big change for me from my earlier school, Lawrence School Lovedale. Montfort was strict whereas in Lawrence we were allowed to be responsible for ourselves. So when i first got into Montfort, i felt the heat on all sides. But i managed to cope and when i got used to the life of following the siren, I did enjoy myself!!

In Montfort, its tradition for each batch to have our own class name which genereally is a word pulled from some language which means "Goodbye". So we chose the word "Visogero", which in some Lithuanian dialect is supposed to mean Goodbye. Well after we choose the batch name, we write and compose a song as our farewell song. And i was given the honour of writing the lyrics for our batch song. Here it is,

Visogero- This is where our Hearts belong.

Through the years that we've been here, Parting is what we've feared,
All the years we were around, u've raised us to this ground.
We now are faced with this end at this so final bend,
We've found this place so deeply dear that we stand filled with tears.

Bridge 1:

Through the rain and through the fog,
Life's mysteries remain unsolved.
Thorugh the hail and through the storm,
This world of ours is to be dissolved.

Chorus:

Visogero to the smiles, Visogero to the times,
Though we may go many miles, (Memories) We'll always cry.
Visogero to this breeze, Visogero to this peace,
Though we may be far apart, Visogero in our hearts.

Doors may be kept wide open, But we are held within,
Remembering now all of you, Each one has been so true.
For all the fun and all the joy, we have to thank you.
Thank you Montfort for your care, your thoughts we'll always bear.

Bridge 2:

Through the rain and through the fog,
Life's mysteries remain unsolved.
Thorugh the hail and through the storm,
Your love for us we'll always want.
(Repeat Chorus)
