Goodnight, Sweet Ladies

Emilie Autumn

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

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 heard ’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 heard ’til our throats are dry

(4 o'clock, 4 o'clock, never let me sleep...)
