Goodnight

The nights we wished would never end,

Despite plenty days well spent.

The dawn we wished would’nt break,

Why do we loathe to stay awake?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -

When awake we can’t defy,

Gravity to reach the sky.

We go about like nincompoops,

Listening to their stupid rules.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -

Stuck with odds stacked against us,

We blame it all on Lady Luck.

To whom do we owe to live like this,

Free falling in a sullen abyss.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -

oh sleep fairy please come to me,

Rock me to your lullaby.

Take me to dreams far away,

I want to roam and go astray.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -

For I am tired, tired of the day.

Of merely looking up at the sky,

Without the wings to fly up high.

So drop me at the valley of sleep,

Let me have my share of peace.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -
