Goodnight, to every little hour that you
Sleep tight, may it hold you through the winter of a
Long night, and keep you from the loneliness of yourself

Heart strung, is your heart frayed and empty cause it's
Hard luck, when no one understands your love it's
Unsung, and I say

Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always, to all that's pure that's in your heart

Goodnight, may your dreams be so happy and your
Head light, with the wishes of a sandman and a
Night light, be careful not to let the bedbugs
Sleep tight, nestled in your covers

The sun shines but I don't
A silver rain will wash away

The sun shines but I don't
A silver rain will wash away

And you can tell, it's just as well
And you can tell, it's just as well

Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always to all that's pure that's in your heart

    General CommentWhat completes this already-great song and masterpiece of an album is the coda played on piano that fades out to end the album. If you haven't already noticed, it mimics the chord progression in Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (the opening track) but a couple steps higher...

    I know, not much on song "meaning," but I am fascinated with how great albums begin and end. And this album is no exception, as the ending bit leaves you right where you began--albeit, with a feeling like you've just got off the world's largest emotional rollercoaster and it was the most exhilirating experience of your life.
