Oh, meet me at midnight
when the kingdom is asleep,
And the guards of the palace
have long been at ease;
Once out the window, follow my steps,
Till us and our shadows are all that is left.

And we'll lift off our armour,
And let the moonlight steal in;
And lay me down, lay me down,
To where the nightingales sing;
Lay me down, lay me down,
Where the nightingales sing.

We're long past surrender,
the bow sets the stage,
And with a single-star spotlight,
we're the leads of a play;
Our story's unscripted
in this secret show,
We'll draw back the curtain
and we'll see where it goes.

Let our hearts take their places,
Oh, let the night pull the string;
Lay me down, lay me down,
To where the nightingales sing;
Lay me down, lay me down,
Where the nightingales sing.

Now, meet me at midnight,
it's the same old sweet song,
Tonight and tomorrow and on and on;
Stay with me, sway with me, love serenade,
As long as we stand and the band wants to play.

And when the last waltz is over,
And the next one begins,
Lay me down, lay me down,
Where the nightingales sing;
Lay me down, lay me down,
Where the nightingales sing;
Lay me down, lay me down,
Where the nightingales sing.
