lyrics

The Longest Night (Solstice Song)
Words & Music by Lynn Adler & Lindy Hearne | 2016 Earthen Vessel Music (ASCAP)


Get the lamp light.
It’s gonna be a long night.
The longest night of the year.
It’s so nice to have you here.
It won’t always be this way.
We have only so long to stay.
Who’s to know who will be the first to go?
It doesn’t matter now…

Good night. What a day it’s been. So short – wish it would stay.

See the sun light.
Melt into this cold night.
The longest night of the year.
Feels so right to hold you near.
Now the moon is on its way.
And our love is here today.
Who’s to know who will be the last to go?
But it doesn’t matter now...

Good night. What a day it’s been. So short – wish it would stay.

Let’s make the most of the moonlight
As we hold one another on this longest night

Good night. What a day it’s been. So short – wish it would stay.
Good night. What a day it’s been. So short – wish it would stay.

Get the lamp light.
It’s gonna be a long night.
Good night dear.
Good night dear.
Good night.
