Colours Run – Goodnight lyrics

Close your eyes
And I could slide with you
There's nothing I can do
To stop us falling
Our candle died
And now we count the cost
When all of the friends we've lost
Return to haunt us

Sleep, girl
Sleep as the smoke curls
It's better to lose than just
To wish you'd tried
My bright crown
Can't stop us dying down
And maybe I failed at life
But how could I mind?
With you asleep in my arms

Please forget
Whatever we fought about
When I made your tears cry out
A silent chorus
We left the road
To stray on whispered hills
Where magic and love breathe still
Behind our doors

Sleep, girl
Sleep as the smoke curls
For how could I argue when
You're always right
Oh, don't start
It's not like you broke my heart
You just derailed my life
But how could I mind?
With you asleep in my arms
Good night
