Another wistful word from somewhere.
GOODBYE LULLABY

I've watched your eyes grow sadder everyday.
It's a long, long trip from sunrise into night.
We have to search for words we want to say.
Nothing in our lives is feeling right.

I can't tell you when it all began.
I don't remember any special day.
Just a slow sad widening of the span,
moving both of us a separate way.

Chorus
It's time to sing a Goodbye Lullaby.
We can't make it work, no matter how we try.
Everyday we only wonder why.
It's time to sing a Goodbye Lullaby.

Funny how it helps us feel relieved.
like guided by some star that shines on high.
We no longer have to make believe.
I see a little sparkle in your eye.

The curtain at the window blowing free,
seems to say we both have taken flight.
A ray of sunlight slanted through the trees,
seems to call us out of lonely night.

Chorus
Our Goodbye Lullabye is sung with love.
The kind that doesn't cling, or hold too tight.
. We will pray for guidance from Above.
Our new love song is a Goodbye Lullabye.
Our new love song is a Goodbye Lullabye.
