lyrics

In the distance dogs are barking,
My candle burns down slowly
The ghosts they may be lingering
My candle has gone out.
The children all are sleeping,
and the wind is gently whispering
Through the cracks in cabin seven,
I'm a long way from home...

I see your mind a-shining,
It can help but make me
So proud of you, darling
You're my gift from above.
I heard your bones a-cracking
Like there was nothing in between them,
But I've got a thing for nothing,
Because everything's got to be loved...

It's a long road to travel
From here to the city,
But I'll be getting to you,
If it takes my life.
It's a hard road to travel
From here to the man you've shown me
In your mirror for my soul.
I love you, goodnight...

You're always a child to me...

Well, we were on the river,
I knew you really loved me,
But I was still too busy,
Building castles on the shore.

And in the distance, dogs are barking,
My candle burns down slowly,
I'm stuck here all alone.

I love you, goodnight.
