Sometimes I feel like 
I'm drownin' in teardrops
My eyes are so tired of 
The trouble I've seen

Then you fell from the heavens 
Right into this sad place
Remembering God for awhile in your dreams
And you look to me now 
So I greet the new day
With the eyes of a child 
And the wonder you bring

So goodnight old world
We'll see you tomorrow
We rise with the sun
And fall with the sparrow
But here is this child
To soften the sorrow
Goodnight old world
Old world goodnight

You fell from the heavens 
Right into this sad place
Remembering God for a while in your dreams
And you look to me now 
And I greet the new day
With the eyes of a child 
At the wonder you bring

So goodnight old world
See you tomorrow
We rise with the sun
Fall with the sparrow
But here is this child
To soften the sorrow
Goodnight old world
Old world goodnight

Goodnight old world
Old world goodnight
