The Long Day Is Over
Norah Jones Lyrics

Feeling tired
By the fire
The long day is over

The wind is gone
Asleep at dawn
The embers burn on

With no reprise
The sun will rise
The long day is over

It surprises me that this heart-warming, soothing, beautiful song goes unnoticed by many people.


Hands-down my favourite track on this album -- there isn't really a second.

This song along with One Flight Down, both written by her guitarist - Jesse Harris - teaches what simple lyrics, a beautiful melody and a warm soothing voice can do to the heart.

jinny love well I wouldn’t say Norah Jones goes unnoticed. Her come away song has 30 M views alone. She is definitely a loved artist and I bet she has many awards too


One of the songs I chose for my fathers funeral last week.

Marilyn Allegretti

Added the words of this song to the prayer for my sisters funeral this month. I miss her so much already! 😢💕

@moodsource thank u for sharing. My father loves to hear this song when he was alive, and now he is gone forever. Everytime I hear this song, it brings back so many memories with him🥀


@Janice Totten thank you. I am sorry about your husband. My father was very old and at the end of his life he looked back at his life, at peace and feeling blessed. It could not have been better. So I am grateful.

My sympathy - I dont know why, but I just had to reach out (honestly, I am NOT a weirdo or fishing for anything). I hope you are finding peace and healing. I had this played at my husband's service. He passed after a 2 yr battle with esophageal cancer. A Norah Jones concert was one of our early dates. It soothes me every time I listen to it. I pray it does the same for you. Take care.
