Saturday 27th July - Hopelessly Sentimental - Goodnight, my Angel

This is what I listen to, time and time again, on my mp3 player at night.

The version I have is from "Lullabies and Goodbyes" by Cantabile  - a male voice quartet. It's just fab. Fabulous. Very Good.

Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been trying to say
I promised I would never leave you
And you should always know
Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
I never will be far away

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an Emerald Bay
And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep
The water's dark and deep inside this ancient heart
You'll always be a part of me

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby 
Then in your heart, there will always be a part of me
Someday we'll all be gone, but lullabies go on and on
They never die, that's how you and I will be

I didn't know much about the song before I got the Cantabile CD. It's a Billy Joel number, and you can hear it on YouTube: Goodnight my angel. I like his version, but I love the Cantabile one.
