From the recording Helen Goodnight

Lyrics

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, goodnightHow 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, goodnightThis 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
