My eyes burn from these tears,
You'd think I'd learn over these years.
Good things won't last forever.
So what the hell am I supposed to do?
You only wanted the things I couldn't give to you.
What became of everyone I used to know?
Where did our respectable convictions go?
Your words don't match the story that your actions show.
But what do I know?
I'm sure you can't help but remembering.
I thought that you'd be one not to forget.
Remembering's not helping you yet.

Say goodnight means goodbye.
I know you think my life would stop with you away.
Maybe I can see you on the holidays, you're worlds away.
I've never forgotten all our yesterdays.
I'm lucky if we're speaking on the holidays.

I can't expect you to spend forever with me.
I live for that single moment.

The evidence presents itself accusingly.
Your absence speaking everything you think of me.
Now that I am faced with opportunity
(My eyes burn from these tears,
You'd think I'd learn over these years.)
You're not remembering
(Good things won't last forever)
I'm not asking you anyway.
Even if you ever could cave in.
I wouldn't know where to begin.

Say goodnight means goodbye.
(So take take everything and leave me scrambling)
I know you think my life would stop with you away.
(Reaching for something that wasn't there in the first place)
Maybe I can see you on the holidays, you're worlds away
(So take take everything and leave me scrambling)
I've never forgotten all our yesterdays but I'm lucky if we're speaking on the holidays.
(Reaching for something that wasn't there in the first place)

Say goodnight means goodbye.
(So take take everything and leave me scrambling)
I know you think my life would stop with you away.
(Reaching for something that wasn't there in the first place)
Maybe I can see you on the holidays, you're worlds away
(So take take everything and leave me scrambling)
I've never forgotten all our yesterdays but I'm lucky if we're speaking on the holidays.
(Reaching for something that wasn't there in the first place)
