Autumn, Emilie - Goodnight, Sweet Ladies Lyrics




[Emily:]
Goodnight, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again

[Emily, Inmates:]
With rosemary green and bright
You're not forgotten, eternal night
Can't fade your memory, dim your light
You've made a difference, you've won your fight

We lift our branches and though we weep
No death could conquer, you only sleep
Goodnight, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again

Goodnight, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again

With rosemary green and bright
You're not forgotten, eternal night
Can't fade your memory, dim your light
You've made a difference, you've won your fight

We lift our branches and though we weep
No death could conquer, you only sleep
Goodnight, sweet ladies...
Goodnight, sweet friends...
You lie but sleeping
Someday we will meet again

Let no voice falter, let die no flame
Let all remember your every name
Let faces turn to the starry sky
Let songs be sung 'til our throats are dry
Let no voice falter, let die no flame
Let all remember your every name
Let faces turn to the starry sky
Let songs be sung 'til our throats are dry

Dry... dry... dry... dry...

[Simultaneously]
Four o'clock, four o'clock...
Never let me sleep...
Four o'clock, four o'clock...
Never let me sleep...

[Simultaneously]
The art of suicide...
Nightgowns and hair...
Curls flying every which way...

[Simultaneously]
I close my eyes and pray for the garish light of day...
Like a frightened child I run from the sleep that never comes...

[Simultaneously]
If I burn you will see the fire in your mind when you sleep...

[Simultaneously]
The pain too pure to hide...
Bridges of sighs...
Meant to conceal lover's lies...

[Simultaneously]
I close my eyes and pray for the garish light of day...
Like a frightened child I run from the sleep that never comes...

[Simultaneously]
Under the arches of moonlight and sky...
Under the arches of moonlight and sky...

    W10R passed away from cancer on Sunday and I was just informed. Felt appropriate to play this.

  2. SheWolfAlpha7

    After reading your book. I can't but weep when I hear this song. -Love Sachiko

  3. evanescence408

    I kinda think she combined her old music because she was singing good night sweet ladies to herself. good night to her past selves. well, that's my take.

  4. Kissa Ukkonen

    I love how she combined her older music together with this.
