|Within Temptation singles chronology|
"Our Farewell" is the first single of the Netherlands symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation from their second studio album Mother Earth. Although the song was released as a single, it never entered the charts, just like their previous single, "Restless". There was also no promotional video made for the single.
A live recording of the song is on the Mother Earth Tour DVD, in which the song is performed as a duet with Dutch opera singer Gea Gijsbertsen, who also conducted the choirs for Within Temptation's special gig at the Broerenkerk, Zwolle during the Mother Earth Tour.
This song has been, among 2 of Van Canto's songs ("Water, Fire, Heaven, Earth" and "Hearted"), the inspiration for "Forevermore", a song by the Dutch symphonic metal band EPICA, featuring the mild-autistic Ruurd Woltring. The recording of this song was made possible thanks to the Dutch TV-show Niks te gek (Nothing too crazy), in which mentally disabled people get their wishes granted.
