"Goodnight Song" as written by and Roland/griffiths Orzabal....
Here on the stage The time has come
With the strains of "Be my angels!?, of rock in two four
Time may keep alive that old swan song
That we've been playing forever
'Till the time maybe right to say goodbye

My voice is aching
I'm tongue tired
And the sounds we are making are so

Goodnight song, played so wrong
Blame the crowd, they scream so loud, so long

Get some honesty
Take the best of me and then the rest let go
In every situation with it's tireless rage
Step outside your cage and let the real fool show

I should have stayed round to break the ice
I thought about it once or twice
But nothing ever changes unless there's some pain
And our

Goodnight song, played so wrong
Blame the crowd, they scream so loud, so long
Goodnight song, played so wrong
Blame the crowd, they scream so loud, so long

    AMEN ROLAND! What a simple but so so so truthful statement!

    My InterpretationI always thought this song was about Curt Smith, his duo partner who Roland Orzabal once ousted from the band. Roland wrote almost everything for the band, and the Smith was not the best bassist. "Goodnight song, played so wrong / Blame the crowd, they scream so loud, so long / Get some honesty" This was Orzabal's first album after Smith was let go.
