Song of the Day

Lullabye (Goodnight my Angel)
(Music and words by Billy Joel)

Good night my angel, time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you
And you should always know
Where ever you may go
No matter where you are
I never will be far away

Good night my angel, now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay

And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep
The water's dark and deep
Inside this ancient heart
You'll always be a part of me

Do do do do...

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die that's how you and I will be.

A beautiful song and a poignant text. I have never heard it in this version before.
I posted a tag today; I am not sure how much you are into tags, but in case Tibby or Bruce want to play, the are welcome to.;))

I love this song. It's on one of my old Billy Joel Albums and haven't heard it in ages! Thank you, BPG!

Take care. We in the bloggyhood will miss you.
