A Song for my Love


Goodnight, goodnight my sunshine
Goodnight from the stars and the sky
I thank you for being here with me
And answering when I asked you why.
The corn in the fields is growing
And needs a lover true
The summer is over, now fall has begun
Goodnight, this song is for you.

Goodnight, goodnight my flower
Goodnight from the sky and the moon
Why, why did you leave me
In this dark and frightening room?
A beam of sunlight is resting
On my ticket for the next train
I should have run for you when you left me
Crying outside in the rain

Goodnight, sleep well, my love
Sleep between the sea and the sand
The ring will stay there on the beach
On the place where it left your hand
The birds in the sky are singing
They have wings far larger than ours
I follow them silently into the dawn
Dreaming of sunshine and flowers
