Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
and save these questions for another day.
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been tryin' to say.
I promised I would never leave you,
and you should always know,
wherever you may go, no matter where you are,
I never will be far away.
Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep,
and still so many things I want to say.
Remember all the songs you sang for me,
when we went sailing on an emerald bay.
And like a boat out on the ocean,
I'm rocking you to sleep,
the water's dark and deep,
inside this ancient heart,
you'll always be a part of me.
Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream,
and dream how wonderful your life will be,
some day your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby,
then in your heart there will always be a part of me.
Some day we'll all be gone, but lullabies go on and on,
they never die, that's how you and I will be.
