Goodnight sweet prince,
For words and feelings mince,
The world values you no more,
Than love unleashed from fate’s craw.
Close your eyes and fade away,
Like winter come into summer’s day,
Leave the world to its own decay,
You were not meant to stay.
So leave this behind to the few,
It was always better me than you,
I am this prince to eternity play,
I’m bitter and I’ve lost my way.
So whisper sweetly into my ear:
“Goodnight, sweet Prince, I’ll be here.”
Tell me you love me and wish I could stay.
On that fateful, bitter, winter’s day.
So cold, so fragile.
Not long to stay.
Leaving this world now I decay.
“Good morning, sweet Prince” I’ll not hear today.
