Farewell Good Night’s Sleep Lyrics

I Forget It’s There

Awaiting the autumn breeze to say farewell

like a leaf i’m holding on, can’t let go

oh lay me down

my time is now

before i take the fall

An echo of words you said to me

repeating and fleeing time and time again

oh lay me down

my time is now

before i take the fall

A secret so small i forget it’s there

a stain so dark i no longer care

oh lay me down

my time is now

before i take it all

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

By and By

I’ve told a lie and i’m telling lies

all of the time

i’ve told the truth, and i’m telling you

i feel just fine

I’ve made you cry and i’ll make you cry

with the things i do

i’ve made you laugh, and i make you laugh

without trying to

So now its time for me to go

before i let you down

by and by

you’ll realize

how i’ve done you wrong

I’ve talked a lot and I talk too much

i’ll talk for you

i’ve been a fool and i’ve made a fool

out of you

~  Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

The Reason Why My Heart’s In Misery (Lefty Frizzel)

I feel so low and dear you know

the reason why my heart’s in misery

i feel so bad but darling I’m glad

‘cos now I’m wise to all the lies you told to me

I feel so low and dear you know

the reason why my heart’s in misery

and feel so bad but darling i’m glad

‘cos now i’m wise to all the lies you told to me

 

Last Time Around

I walked the streets of lonesome town before

come with me and walk with me once more

for so long you have been on my mind

so let’s leave now everything behind

Hand in hand together you and me

our footsteps, a lovely melody

in the silence without words to come between

that is where i want to be

The sweetness of the gentle breeze

brings back precious memories

hoping that it feels the same to you

that is all my lonely heart can do

Last time around I had you on my mind

thank lonesome town now i have you by my side

the grey skies above turn to blue

and the sun shines just for me and you

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

On My Own

I’m on my own

right where i belong

since you’ve been gone

all things fade away

into the night

where i sit alone

what else to do

but think of you

I’ve been blind

all this time

to think that you

where only mine

but now i see

clearly

i can not do

this with you

The sun comes up

and drives away

this dark and lonesome night

and on this day

come what may

i’ll still be on my own

You’ve found your love

with someone new

and took a part

of me with you

and left me here

with my misery

what can i do

without you

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

Farewell Good Night’s Sleep

Each night when i close my eyes

and hope to get some sleep

there you are reminding me

of what i couldn’t keep

i’ve done the very best i can

to stay away from you

but you’re there every time

i close my eyes

so what can i do?

In those darkest hours of the night

all the hope i had dies

and loneliness comes easily

when emptiness arrives

my heart can’t take it

so please don’t break it

i need to have a heart

to make it through

this awful world

that i am a part

There are so many things

that i would like to say to you

before i go away

as far i can from you

but i know that you don’t understand

so quietly i’m gone

then i can close my eyes

and there you are

and then i’ll tell you all

There are so many things

that i would like to say to you

before i go away

as far i can from you

my heart can’t take it

so please don’t break it

i need to have a heart

to make it through

this awful world

that i am a part

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

Why do I Worry?

Constantly reminding me

of what i should be

life falls into place

terrified of what i’ll find

this can’t be right

dreading every step i take

my mother with her precious smile

looks at me with the tender eye

i have known all these years

and she says don’t worry darling

if you are falling

get up and start again

Now i realize

time can be kind

to those who know where to go

oh how i have tried

with a worried mind

can’t find my way home

my father with his troubled past

still strong he stands

he knows the hardship of this world

he says don’t worry baby

i know what i say dear

if you’re feeling lost just look at me

As strong as the mountains high

as soft as a silent sigh

deep down in my soul

saying why do you worry

wait and you’ll see

this is the way it should be

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

Days Have Been

Years have gone and days have been

we’ve had our history

but never did i ever think

we could come to this

this unexpected change for us

has taken me by surprise

and now i say

“I welcome whatever comes

you’ve touched my heart in a friendly way”

what more can I say

I’ve tried my best to be your friend

like we used to be

but as things changed

i’ve come to find

that’s not enough for me

my doubtful heart is heavy

and I’m feeling torn

but I say

“I welcome whatever comes

you’ve touched my heart in a friendly way

and I hope to do the same”

Simple things can complicate

that i know for sure

so how can we find a way

and carefully go on

let’s take our time and see what comes

time can only tell

until then

i welcome whatever comes

you’ve touched my heart in a friendly way

and i’ll never be the same

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

Little By Little

Little by little you’re breaking my heart

piece by piece you’re tearing me apart

time and time again I’m crying over you

more and more trying to forget about you

Alone and lonesome i’ve found my way

oh it’s been tough but I think i’ll be okay

still time and time again I’m crying over you

more and more trying to forget about you

Day by day I’m haunted by you

i can’t believe how you’ve made me feel blue

time and time again i’m crying over you

more and more trying to forget about you

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

My Second Hand Heart

My second hand heart

may fall apart

in times of need don’t count on me

if you want romance

don’t take a chance

on my weary heart and me

My second hand heart

right from the start

will only cause you misery

if you think that i’ll be true

forever to you

i’m sad to say it isn’t me

My second hand heart

will play a part

in bringing you to tears

but i care for you

so whatever you do

please stay away from me

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

 

The Country Ballad

If you’re feeling sad and blue

don’t let it get to you

your heartache will in time

come to an end

Ever since we were apart

i have kept you in my heart

i will always care for you

until the end

Time goes by and feelings fade

you might fall for someone new

i may even to the same

but can i get over you?

Seasons come and seasons go

i’ll be here, and this you know

as sure as the sun will rise

until the end

~ Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir
