Our seperation has it's faults
but I don't wanna leave it all
so write the letters in teary ink
I just need some time to think
and I just need some time to breathe

baby just say goodnight
I'll be gone tomorrow
baby just close your eyes
I can't take the sorrow
baby just walk away
you know I can't stay
there's no easy way to say goodbye
so baby just say goodnight

we're in a spell that never ends
the empty hourglass wore me thin
so let the phone do it's work
your voice is heaven
but it hurts
your words are memories
but they burn

baby just say goodnight
I'll be gone tomorrow
baby just close your eyes
I can't take the sorrow
baby just walk away
you know I can't stay
there's no easy way to say goodbye
so baby just say goodnight

baby don't say goodbye
baby just close your eyes
and dream,tomorrow's on it's way
so just walk away

baby just say goodnight
I'll be gone tomorrow
baby just close your eyes
I can't take the sorrow
baby just walk away
you know I can't stay
there's no easy way to say goodbye
so baby just say goodnight

baby just say goodnight

    General CommentClearly this song is about a couple who is in love but has to have some space but for me it represents something else.... my boyfriend is leaving this summer and i am practically hysterical and i cry every time i hear it. cause there really isn't any easy way to say goodbye....

    General Commentyes this song is really sad! to me, it sounds like it's about a ex boyfriend and girlfriend that deeply love each other but for some reason, they feel that they can't be together due to the hurtful things from their past relationship....ah and i can relate to that so well cause yea....love has it's funny ways in working...it hurts so bad to hang on but for some odd reason you can't let go...

    General CommentFor me, this is the best song on the album. Surprising that only three comments have been made on it.

    Seems like it's the type of song where the singer has to leave, but at the same time, doesn't really want to. He doesn't want to leave her, and saying "goodbye" would be final, as if they'd never be able to get together again. He doesn't want that finality in his words, as illustrated when he says "tomorrow's on its way..." possibly hinting at some day he may come back.

    But, what do I know?

    General CommentI agree with DoubtFull. I was going to go through and be very specific about it, but one; I'm not in the mood, and two; they pretty much explained it, DoubtFull did.

    This song makes me very emotional, and it's my favorite song on Greetings From Imrie House.
