do you remember all the things you said to me
you made them sound so simple, but there just not that easy
and you swear that I could be someone to hold you for all time
baby not tonight

I've tried to tell you now but I can't find those words
I've tried to show you how but that's pain you don't deserve
and you're sitting there and asking if you can come inside
baby not tonight

take a look at what we've become
a tragedy but I can't find the love
that we started with so long ago and I know, this isnt right.
it's the last time I'll be kissing you, so goodnight.

this is gonna hurt me now much more than it hurts you
sad old cliches are slowly turning true
you can tell that something's wrong and ask "can we talk awhile?"
baby not tonight

take a look at what we've become
a tragedy but I can't find the love
that we started with so long ago and I know, this isnt right.
it's the last time I'll be kissing you, so goodnight.

we're driving home and you can see this in my eyes
yours start to tear up, you see straight through my disguise
you lean in so much closer now, you're holding on so tight.
it's the last time I'll be kissing you... so good night.

    General CommentI believe this is one of Adelayda's best songs ever. The lyrics chosen have such a great way of expressing the tough emotions of a relationship 'on the way out'. Be sure to check ot the original version from their self-titled CD (the one before 'Room to Breathe'). I like it better because it has a rougher, more non-studio sound, and a much better guitar solo. This is a great tribute to the early (but awesome) days of Adelayda. Great jobs guys.
