Song Description

Compares letting a lover go to listening to a Nightengale sing outside his winder, knowing it will be gone.

Lyrics

Nightengale

Nightengale, oh my sweet nightengale
Can?t you just sing to me off to sleep
The night is aching I can feel it in my heart
Aching with a pain so bittersweet

The way you sing it?s like you?re missing her too
The two of you are prob?ly just alike
When morning comes you will have flown away
But at least you?re here with me tonight

The warmth of her body I still feel on my skin
Though she?s miles away by now and the winter?s settin in
No power that was in me could make her stay until daylight
I really need a song to help me sleep tonight
And crying makes me sleepy after a while

She could sing, she had everything
A man like me could ever hope to find
Except the one thing she didn?t want to give
Except for that I would have made her mine

Nightengale, oh my sweet nightengale
Can?t you just sing to me off to sleep
The night is aching I can feel it in my bones
Aching with a pain so bittersweet
