Lyrics:

HELEN GOODNIGHT

This is the song I should've wrote
When first I heard you'd chosen to go
But I didn't know what to feel
You still seemed so fine it was like it wasn't real

But I heard you slipped away last night
And I wanted to wish you a safe flight
Thank you for leading me out of my own dark night
I love you - I'll miss you
Helen, goodnight

How can I try to wrap you up so small
When to me you always seemed ten feet tall
I could write a thousand songs
And never fit all of you in though I sang so long

But when I heard you slipped away last night
I wanted to wish you a safe flight
and to thank you for leading me out of my own dark night
I love you - I'll miss you
Helen, goodnight

This is the best gift that I know how to make
But it's one I knew you'd be happy to take
As long as I promised to get out there and live
And to learn I'm the one person I should always forgive

And I'm glad you slipped out last night
And so gently took off into flight
Thank you for leading me out of my own dark night

I'm glad you were released last night
And the rest of us will be just fine
You'll always be a light to guide us through those dark nights
We love you - We'll miss you
Helen, goodnight
