Goodnight to the city and the sea, to the strangers in the street
Goodnight to the ghost out in the hall, the paint peeling off the walls
Goodnight

Sometimes I stand between the sidewalk and the sky
And just stare into the clouds as they pass by
You have to leave the ground to learn to fly

Goodnight to the TV and the clocks, to the rain that never stops
Goodnight to everyone I know, shut my eyes and let 'em go
Goodnight

Sometimes I stand between the sidewalk and the sky
And just stare into the clouds as they pass by
You have to leave the ground to learn to fly

There is something beautiful dying every day
And for the first time in my life, I'm not afraid
'Cause there's nothing in this world that doesn't change

Goodnight to the person I have been, to the place that I am in
Goodnight tomorrow, hello to the sun, are you ready? Here I come
Goodnight

Sometimes I stand between the sidewalk and the sky
And just stare into the clouds as they pass by
You have to leave the ground to learn to fly
You have to leave the ground to learn to fly
