Carole King - Nightingale

rate me

Like some night bird, homeward wingin'

He seeks the sheltered nest

Like the sailor's lost horizon

He needs some place to rest

The songs that he's been singin'

No longer make much sense

And those strangers' cold perceptions

They've killed his confidence

Nightingale

She sails away upon a sea of song

Nightingale

She serenades his lonely, lonely life along

When his tired voice is broken

His golden hope is gone

She makes a lost soul's simple longing

Somehow not so wrong

Nightingale

Nightingale

He was strong, but he was taken

By the thought of his success

Those spotlight shadows, how they lured him

And took him like all the rest

But that old dream don't look good now

No, it don't seem quite the same

He needs to hear a tender word

Won't you sing him home again

Nightingale

She sails away upon a sea of song

Nightingale

She serenades his lonely, lonely life along

When his strength is slowly goin'

His pride is all but gone

She makes a foolish dreamer listen

To one last song

Nightingale
