"Farewell and Goodnight" is a song from The Smashing Pumpkins' third studio album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. According to the BMI database, it was written solely by James Iha, although the liner notes state it was co-written with Corgan. It is the only song in the band's catalog that features all four original members on vocals.[1]

A rough vocal mix was included on the 2012 deluxe reissue of Mellon Collie under the title "Goodnight".

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

goodnight, to every little hour that you sleep tight
may it hold you through the winter of a long night
and keep you from the loneliness of yourself
heart strung is your heart frayed and empty
cause it's hard luck, when no one understands your love
it's unsung, and i say

goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
goodnight, always, to all that's in your heart

goodnight, may your dreams be so happy and your
head lite with the wishes of a sandman and a
night light, be careful not to let the bedbugs
sleep tight nestled in your covers

the sun shines but i don't
a silver rain will wash away

and you can tell, it's just as well
and you can tell, it's just as well

goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
goodnight, always to all that's pure that's in your heart
