"Goodnight" as written by Colin Newton, Rod Pryce-jones, Allan William Stewart, Roddy Woomble and Gavin Bernard Fox....
You thought shyness was to blame
and you'd get to live your life again
when you get to wish everyone goodnight
as the crowd booed out your name
at least they spelled it right
so you don't complain
why everyone is wishing you goodnight

And maybe I'm wrong
and maybe I'm right
what if I was the only one who could say
goodnight

It's your heroes who are to blame
constantly saying things that they don't explain
well that's too bad but I still can't say goodnight
and I just can't stay tonight
I woke up saying goodnight

Goodnight, goodnight


(hidden track)

As a stranger
is it strange to be thinking
half expecting that moments don't come true
I'll have to stay awhile
so promise that I'll stay
and use my memory to remember a time
just drink your wine and tell the truth
I'll have to stay awhile
so promise that I'll stay
and wait for happiness
which doesn't seem as pointless
if I'm given a reason
so give me another reason why
we're together
we're younger than you are forever
but older than we are together
there's still so much to do

and everything is always changing
and nothing stays in the same place
for too long
I've been too long awake
and everyone seems like they're slowly changing
no one stays in the same place for too long
I've been too long awake

Together
we're younger than you are
forever
but older than we are
together
there's still so much to do

    This feels annoying to listen to, but I could read it over and over, all night. Fucking Woomble.
