lyrics

My muse, my spark, how I have loved your dark
And the solitude you clasped around my heart
And all these years I have pledged to you my tears
And you have given me the comfort of your fears

I came to you back then, a boy no more than ten
And you saw how badly I needed a friend
And oh, how proud I was to take that vow
And how lovely you looked in your veil and shroud

I said I'd stay in your arms and never go
As if a boy could promise not to grow

And so goodnight, goodnight, goodnight, my love, goodnight
And this time may I wake into the light
I've sung your song and I have loved you long
But now it's time I meet the day, my love, goodnight

My ark, my storm, your cold has kept me warm
I have shivered in the fever of your forms
And thus this life has been carved by your knife
From that first evening when I took you for my wife

And these pains you kill are aching for you still
I love you and I know I always will
But here we must part, dear lady of the dark
As I untie these knots we fastened round my heart

I said I'd sleep in your arms and never rise
As if a man could die before he dies

And so goodnight, goodnight, goodnight, my love, goodnight
And this time may I wake into the light
I've sung your song and I have loved you long
But now it's time I meet the day, my love, goodnight

It's time I meet the day, my love, goodnight
