"Goodnight My Friend" as written by and Matthew B. Scannell....
Goodnight my sun
Goodnight my friend
Rest your soul at this
Long day's end

The fire inside
Will warm our night
And Daddy's arms will
Hold you tight

Dream of summer skies
Sunset is bound to each sunrise
Rest is your first right
My friend goodnight

This world spinning
Time always winning
The silver chains keep thinning and
This is just your beginning

Sleep my friend
At last be free
No we won't forget
Our merriest melody

Gone to another place
Of carousel rides round an angel's face
I'm sure we'd both laugh at the sight

My friend goodnight

    General Commenti think this song is about the death of a child. i know that's morbid but the lyrics make sense and it has a sweet innocent sound to it. vertical horizon plays the most eloquent songs. they rule!

    General CommentThe song is dedicated to someone named ACC, 1971-1993. But I like the child angle. It really fits with the innocence of the lyrics.
