Well this is awkward. The World is supposed to be about closure but we don’t have that right now. So, I have created this tool for your shelter-in-place survival kit, portable and fully reusable any time you’re craving the feeling of closure and not getting it from the actual world. I know it by heart because it’s what my dad always sang as a lullaby. We thought he’d made it up, of course, until he told us it was the last song the band would always play at every high school dance circa 1957. In hindsight I think it’s possible that he sang it not so much for us, but to remind himself of a time in his life when he wasn’t responsible for calming down a houseful restless girls, he was just a kid who didn’t want the dance to end yet.
Goodnight, Sweetheart (Ray Noble, 1931) Good night sweetheart, till we meet tomorrow Good night sweetheart, sleep will banish sorrow Tears and parting may make us forlorn But with the dawn, a new day is born (so I'll say) Good night sweetheart, tho' I'm not beside you Good night sweetheart, still my love will guide you Dreams enfold you, in each one I'll hold you Good night sweetheart, good night
The World says, till then.
