lyrics

Goodnight, Sleep Well

My eyes turn to dust, and our feet don’t touch the ground
And we’re a million miles from home
Our clothes are all wet, covered in mud and sweat
But it’s love that is aching through our bones

Chorus:
I said “Goodnight, Sleep Well
Now that midnight has rung it’s bells,
If you see me in your dreams
Babe, I promise I won’t tell”

Well, there’s honey in your eyes, babe, you’re in for a surprise
I got a trick or two left up my sleeve
In the moonlights old dance, oh, that livid silver trance
we’ll lay ‘neath the bird songs of the tree’s

Chorus

I been down and out all day, with few words to say
Now I think a strong drink might ease my mind
Let me drink up your smile, oh, baby, smile at me for a while
and I’ll leave my old sack of sorrows behind

Chorus

Now the cat’s on his prowl, and the lights are fading out
Baby, shake yourself on over to me
My girls got 23 rings, and everyone of them sings
All together in an old harmony

Chorus
