Goodnight, Columbia

Came out of Clyde's to the full moon over the water.





I thought I caught a glimpse of Dennis on the way in. Like a scene from a hokey movie, I stopped and closed my eyes and looked again. 

Goodnight, Columbia.


Oh, oh, oh my what a day
Making my way
Around this town.
Oh, oh, oh walking the lakefront with                                                                                   Eager feet. Who will I meet?

The light of the dream is shining its beam
It's like a phone call from yesterday
Oh, oh, oh pulling me closer to plans for a 
Brighter New Day

 Good night Columbia
 Every day sees me lovin' ya
 Every night near the People Tree
 (All the trees sing a symphony.)

Columbia: Goodnight
And some day when the time is right
The world's gonna see what I see
Columbia set free!

Oh, oh, oh look at the lake
Nothing can break 
The stillness now
Oh, oh a table at Clyde's and the best of friends
The night never ends.

The names on the bricks, the people who mix,
they say the dream is worth fighting for   
So, oh, oh don't let it die
Cause Columbia's ready to fly

Good night Columbia
Now the Whole Foods is just a dream
Soon we'll wake to a place to thrive
We'll be walking, won't have to drive

Columbia: goodnight
And some day when the time is right
The world's gonna see what I see
Columbia set free!

I know every Village, each crazy street name 
I know it's important when people came.
But the future is coming, no, it won't wait.
So someone accept it before it's too late.

So, oh, oh, give it a chance
The romance of making a dream come true
Oh, oh, oh something inside of you knows the song-- 
Just sing along.                                              

Pioneers may say "no" but my heart says "lets go!"
It's like tomorrow is at the door
Oh,oh,oh this is the time
One moment, one meeting with fate.

Good night Columbia
Every day sees me lovin' ya
Every night near the People Tree
(All the trees sing a symphony.)

Columbia: Goodnight
And some day when the time is right
The world's gonna see what I see
Columbia set free!
