"Goodnight, Goodbye" as written by and Matthew Devine....
He said that fame got unlivable,
That he got drained, all the colours had run.
Oh but you know right now,
You'd do it again,
cause I waited my whole life.

They said it made him so colourless,
And that the edges got so cancerous.
Deep in the right school play,
But the wrong scene,
I guess it changes everything.

So we run down,
To say goodnight,
But we know that,
It's our goodbye.

They said she made him so colourless,
And that the edges got so cancerous.
Oh but you know right now,
You'd do it again,
cause I waited my whole life.

So we lay down,
And say goodnight,
But we know that,
It means goodbye.

You're all that I have now,
So don't ever let me go.
You're all that I have now,
So don't ever let me go.
You're all that I have now,
So don't ever let me go.
You're all that I have now!
So don't ever let me go,

You're all that I have now.

    General CommentThe acoustic version of this song is beautiful. Unfortunately, when they played it live the drums were too loud to actually hear the song. It made me really sad.

    Anyways, this song could mean that, when you put your entire being into something (be it a relationship, job, ect) you sometimes leave behind a part of yourself. And, in time, you can turn into a completely different person. Still, if given the choice to redo your life, you'd make the same decision because it's what you truly believe in.

    It how one choice in your life can change everything but, as long as you never look back and continue forward, you'd have made the right decision. As long as you hold onto that one thing you'll never need anything else.

    'You're all that I have now
    So don't never let me go.'

    General CommentI think it's "that he got drained, all the colours had run."

    Brilliant song, though. One of my favourites.
