lyrics

all I could see
was a beautiful girl
and she asked, could she walk by my side?

she begged me to stay,
but I was never there
it had nothing to do with my pride

ah, ‘cause what makes you proud today
by the morning has packed up and gone

I don’t think you can hide
inside the madness
and outside the light
let’s keep it unspoken tonight

there’s no one that I would rather be
except maybe myself in my memory

you only live a while, whatever makes you smile
engage while you can,
stay whimsical child
oh, ‘cause what made you smile today
by the morning you’re too scared to face

I don’t think you can hide
inside the madness
and outside the light
let’s keep it unspoken tonight

but once in a dream, she thought she could fly
I have seen this sadness soar when she's awake
she pines for the moon
and the hope she holds still in her eyes
I, for one, have seen the toll it can take...

and all I could see was a beautiful girl
that I wish she could see from the inside
and all I could see was a beautiful girl
that I wish she could see from the inside

so goodnight, Evelyn
may your lift-off be soft as your landing
goodnight, Evelyn
may your lift-off be soft as your landing
