i'm singing now so shut up: music

Helen Goodnight

(Morrigan)
This is the song I should’ve wrote

When first I heard you’d chosen to go
But I didn’t know what to feel

You still seemed so fine it was like it wasn’t real

     But I heard you slipped away last night
     And I wanted to wish you safe flight
     Thank you for leading me out of my own dark night
     I love you; I’ll miss you
     Helen, goodnight

How can I try to wrap you up so small

When to me you always seemed ten feet tall

I could write a thousand songs
And never fit all of you in though I sang so long

     And when I heard you slipped away last night
     I wanted to wish you safe flight

     And to thank you for leading me out of my own dark night
     I love you; I’ll miss you

     Helen, goodnight

This is the best gift I know how to make
But it’s one I knew you’d be happy to take
As long as I promised to get out there and live
And to learn I’m the one person I should always forgive

     And I’m glad you slipped out last night
     And so gently took off into flight

     Thank you for leading me out of my own dark night
     And I’m glad you were released last night
     And the rest of us will be just fine
     You’ll always be a light
 
    shining through our darkest nights

     We love you; we’ll miss you
     Helen, goodnight
