"Goodnight" as written by and Nicholas William Hanworth Alan John Redmond....
It's too late, the sky's performing
We must have missed our warning sign that day
There's so much that we've no longer got
As my eyes move down across your face

I remember songs that brought us in the corner of your room
You held too close for both of us
Till nothin' touched could move

I know, it doesn't silence anyone
So what could any one say
There's been but, two meanings in our lives
What you want and what I can't hide

The fallen cry,
The empty driveway lights to take me home
You held too close for both of us
Till nothing said was known
I remember songs that brought us in the corner of your room
You held too close for both of us
Till nothing touched could move

The time is over, goodnight
Leaving us the way I thought it might
'Cause I know a place I'm going to's
Like nowhere that you've been
Goodnight, goodnight

    General CommentIt's a song of separation, and that battle between attachment/detachment before someone leaves. I think the girl is holding on while the boy is trying to let go.
