Goodnight, Amelia

Lyrics Burt LaFontaine

Talk about solitude, talk about attitude,
there's nothing to talk about this late at night,
when boys walk alone where the water is beautiful
and love songs are easy to write.

They sing goodnight, Amelia,
goodnight, Amelia,
throw all your voices aside.
Water and amber are high on the air.
Love is an anchor that drags me down there
and bitter down folly I ride,
bitter down folly I ride.

So put on your very best,
burn down the consequence,
dance in your corner till morning arrives.
strike up your cameras,
strike up your orchestras,
live American lives.

And sing goodnight, Amelia,
goodnight, Amelia,
throw all your weapons away.
Water and amber are high on the air.
Love is an anchor that drags me down there,
and bitter down folly I lay,
bitter down folly I lay.

Now she walks alone where the water is dangerous;
tresses like little white wings on the shore.
Run by the beat of the blood of the ancestors,
but no one bleeds anymore...

To sing goodnight, Amelia,
goodnight, Amelia,
fire your weapons away.
Water and amber are high on the air,
and love is a hard-hearted counselor there,
and bitter down folly I lay,
bitter down folly I lay.
