lyrics

When you get the call, don't turn to the wall
That's what a poet once said
Burn and rave all the way to the grave
Until the light is dead

But I won't rage through my old age
I see a man serene
Perhaps still shy but with a twinkling eye
Do you know what I mean?

May you go gentle
May your eyes stay bright
May you go gentle into that good night

And now you’ve thrown your precious stone
And watched it sink and disappear
It didn’t make the waves your poor ego craves
And in the stillness sometimes you can hear

The stifled sighs and soft goodbyes
Of twins who died entwined
And feel the brush of love, the wings of the dove,
And the kindness of the unremembered kind

May you go gentle
May your eyes stay bright
May you go gentle into that good night

May you go gentle
May your load be light
May you go gentle into that good night
