Did you really think that it was over when you hung up the phone
and said goodnight? And did you ever think that it would be
too much? I can't leave without saying goodbye. So did you really
think that you could take it? Could you make it alone tonight?
I never could have hoped for anything more. Be my angel if you
can, alright. You always say goodnight, and you always say goodnight.
So baby did you sleep an hour for me? How I wish I was there
right now. I wasn't going to tell you I could change things.
I'm afraid I never will know how. But I don't really think that
I can take it. Will I make it alone somehow? So hold me in your
arms before I leave you. I'll be back as soon as time allows.
You always say goodnight, and you always say goodnight. Goodnight.

    General Commentthis is an extremely depressing song. it just sort of makes me think of someone letting someone down so much that they might be driven to do something... bad.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a modern version of "Stairway To Heaven". This song was well written...I just got into TJT this past 2 weeks-downloading all of their songs on my computer, and this is by far one of my fave's

    General CommentI just dl'd a bunch of TJT's songs, and this one is so far my fav. It is just great. I agree that it is like a modern Stairway, very great. I love it! I love this band now!
