"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.

    My InterpretationThis song is about the Dia watching someone she loved with brain cancer dying.

    "And I won't go
    Till you're asleep."
    She won't go until the her friend passes away.

    "You open your mouth, like an asthma attack, you repeat,
    "If all that you take from this is courage, then I've no regrets.""
    Her friend in a labored manner tells her, "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."
    She realizes that her friend will not live through the night and can't be optimistic about it anymore and knows that her friends only has probably till morning to live at most.

    "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."
    She looks at her friends and describes how her fair is cut short and how she has vomit around her neck. She doesn't bother waking her up but is going to spend the last remaining hours with her.
