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 so I greet a new day
With the eyes of a child at 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

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