My lovely woman child,
I found you out running wild with someone new.
You've been untrue, and ev'rybody knows we're through.
But I can't say goodbye to you
No matter what you do.
My heart won't let you go.
Although I know you go with someone new, I think of you.
I think of how you kiss, your tenderness.
With all of this, I miss the way you say goodnight.
Bittersweet your kisses,
When my heart still misses the way that things used to be.
But I know you're strong for other arms you long for,
And you can never come back to me
Not just for yesterday, tonight or tomorrow.
Ah, but forever, I'll hear you say goodnight, goodnight.
Goodnight turned out to be a lie,
And I can't help it if I cry.
Goodnight, my love, sleep tight, my love, goodnight.
