Night Song
Where are you going, why do you have to leave
I just got to know you, won't you tell me please
Sweet childhood memories, drift on the evening breeze
Come to me in my dreams
Come to set us free
School days and puppet shows
Long walks and ice cream cones
Linger in my mind
A fantasy life turned real
A dream that we both could feel
Now you're going away
The boatman awaits you there
Waits to collect his fare, and take you far away
A cruel twist of destiny
The boatman, my enemy
Must be another way
