Goodnight Old World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning in teardrops
My eyes are so tired of the trouble I've seen
Then you fell from the heavens right into this sad place
Remembering God for a while in your dreams

And you look to me now and I greet the new day
With the eyes of a child and the wonder you bring

So goodnight old world, we'll see you tomorrow
We rise with the sun, fall with the sparrow
But here is this child to soften the sorrow
Goodnight old world, old world goodnight

You fell from the heavens right into this sad place
Remembering God for a while in your dreams
And you look to me now and I greet the new day
With the eyes of a child and the wonder you bring

So goodnight old world, see you tomorrow
We rise with the sun, fall with the sparrow
But here is this child to soften the sorrow
Goodnight old world, old world goodnight
Goodnight old world, old world goodnight
