The Goodnight Song (Blue Murder)

So, goodnight, my friends, as the dawn comes pale,
And the eastern wind brings the threat of gales;
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.

I have travelled far from this island strand,
From the icy waste to the burning sand;
Ploughed the raging sea, seen the verdant land,
Been at home in a place far away.

So, goodnight, my friends, as the dawn comes pale,
And the eastern wind brings the threat of gales;
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.

Many differences, but much the same,
Though the ways are strange and have different names;
And a friendly face breaks a thousand chains,
And a smile breaks the lock on the door.

So, goodnight, my friends, as the dawn comes pale,
And the eastern wind brings the threat of gales;
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.

We have joined in song, laughed a night away,
Swapped out tales of woe, kept the clouds at bay;
In the morning clear we'll be on our way,
But we'll meet further on down the road.

So, goodnight, my friends, as the dawn comes pale,
And the eastern wind brings the threat of gales;
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.

So, lets drink a health to good times gone by,
When our spirits soared and we touched the sky;
And we bid farewell but not goodbye,
And we'll meet further on down the road.

So, goodnight, my friends, as the dawn comes pale,
And the eastern wind brings the threat of gales;
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest veil,
And we'll meet further on down the road.
