"Kiss You Goodnight" as written by and Meg/frampton Frampton....
I don't care to know, the time on the wall.
The placement of my shoes, on the wood floor.
The last boat has left. Can't carry you afloat.
I fear the empty, wet bed. The empty gray coat.
And I won't go till you're asleep.

You open your mouth, like an asthma attack, you repeat,
If all that you take from this is courage, then I've no regrets.
I wanted to kiss you goodnight.
No longer can pretend, it won't cave in and will be alright.
I wanted to save this last light.

With dawn comes certainty of what we'll be,
For now hold me lightly.
I look to the floor.

Your hair like cut grass.
Your vomit it forms, a gold chain 'round your neck.
I won't wake you up.
No need for last words.
These last idle hours.
More than I deserve.

You take from this is,
Courage than I've no regrets
Don't settle for less again.
You've become more than I could have become for you.
Could have inspired to be.
Hesitation will leave dents on the walls and the rail.

And your scent will leave me with more faith in myself.
I wanted to kiss you goodnight.
No longer can pretend
It won't cave in and will be alright.

Wanted to tell you I lied.
I said I'd make it through this world alright,
But I don't care to try.
I'd make it through this world alright,
But I don't care to try.

    General CommentWhy has no one commented on this? It's beautiful, poetic... I love it. I'm also pretty sure it's "wake you up" not "make you up".

    General Commenti love this song so much. after you read the lyrics you can pretty much figure out what it's about. on their website at

    meganddia.com/news/2009/04/15/…

    dia explains the songs from the album. and simply this one is about remembering the things that people have taught you through their lifetime (i think). about them being remembered, and us taking in all that we can from them. but there's one line that i find so powerful but i want to know the correct grammar... the last line,

    "i wanted to tell you i lied. i said i'd make it through this world alright but i don't care to try."

    the way Dia writes it on the website is, "i said "i'd make it through this world alright, but i don't care to try.' "

    but... wouldn't it make more sense if it was,

    "i said 'i'd make it through this world alright' but i don't care to try." as in, she told them that she could make through, but the lying part was that she didn't even want to try?

    it's something i'm kind of confused on, if anyone could help clarify it with me, that'd be great.
