For my inaugural post for Song Sundays, I am going to choose a song that has some great significance to me. I am going to choose a song that is so beautiful. I am going to choose Billy Joel's last great hit "Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel)".
The lyrics of this song are so beautiful. The first verse goes, "Goodnight My Angel, time to close your eyes. And save these questions for another day. I think you know what you've been asking me, I think you know what I've been trying to say. I promised I would never leave you, and you should always know. Wherever you may you go, no matter where you are, I never will be far away."
The second verse goes, "Goodnight My Angel, now it's time to sleep. And still so many things I want to say. Remember all the songs you sang for me, when we went sailing on an Emerald Bay. And like a boat out on the ocean, I'm rocking you to sleep. The water's dark, and deep inside this ancient heart, you'll always be a part of me."
The third and final verse goes, "Goodnight My Angel, now it's time to dream. And dream how wonderful your life will be. Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby, then in your heart, there always will be a part of me." Then it tags with "Someday we'll all be gone, but lullaby's go on and on. They never die, that's how you, and I, will be."
This song is so beautiful, and it's lyrics are so powerful. It compares love to a nice lullaby, that it will never go away, and that it will last forever. It says that love between the two people will never die, and that is so powerful. This song is so moving for me, and it does mean a lot to me, for a few different reasons.
Anyways, I hope that you all will enjoy the song, and get to love it as much as I do!
Have you ever heard this song before? Do you like the song like I do? Do you like this new post idea?
Peace and Love,
