"Goodnight Moon" as written by Matthew Poulos, Alexander Reed, Jason Alan Lancaster and Steven Kopacz....
And don't go to bed yet, love,
I think it's too early
And we just need a little time to ourselves
And don't go to bed yet, love,
I think it's too early,
And we just need a little time to ourselves.

If my wall clock tells me that it's four
In the morning,
I'll give it hell.

'Cause I've been trying way too long,
To try and be the perfect song,
When our hearts are heavy burdens,
We shouldn't have to bear alone.

So goodnight moon,
And goodnight you,
When you're all that I think about.
All that I dream about.
How'd I ever breathe without

A goodnight kiss
From goodnight you,
The kind of hope they all talk about.
The kind of feeling we sing about.
Sit in our bedroom and read aloud,
Like a passage from goodnight moon

And sing for me softly, love,
Your song for tomorrow
And tell me my name's the one sitting in there somewhere

And dream for me anything, but dream
It in color about
We know the sun's still rising but we don't care

'Cause I've been trying way too long,
To try and be the perfect song,
When our hearts are heavy burdens,
We shouldn't have to bear alone.

So goodnight you,
And goodnight moon,
When you're all that I think about.
All that I dream about.
How'd I ever breathe without

A goodnight kiss
From goodnight you,
The kind of hope they all talk about.
The kind of feelings we sing about.
Sit in our bedrooms and read aloud,
Like a passage from goodnight moon

From goodnight moon

Then there you were,
And I saw my Juliet come graceful down the stairs.
It's hard to miss,
The way her eyes light up the room,
And steal the air.

Just feel her lips,
Lock on to every breath I take;
Can't breath it in.

Do you feel us falling?

'Cause I feel us falling

So goodnight moon,
And goodnight you,
When you're all that I think about.
All that I dream about.
How'd I ever breathe without

A goodnight kiss
From goodnight you,
The kind of hope they all talk about.
The kind of feeling we sing about.
Sit in our bedrooms and read aloud,
Like a passage from goodnight moon

Oh, from goodnight moon

And there you were,
And I saw my Juliet come graceful down the stairs.
It's hard to miss,
The way her eyes light up the room,
And steal the air.

Do you feel us falling?
'Cause I can feel us falling

Do you feel us falling?
Cause I can feel us falling

Do you feel us falling?
'Cause I can feel us falling

Do you feel us falling?
'Cause I can feel us falling

Oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentI think the people above me got it pretty spot on :). Is is just me, or does this song sound like a beautiful lullaby? Jason is an amazing lyric writer, and his voice is gorgeous <3. I'm in love with this song.

    General CommentIt's fairly plain and simple. Good night moon and goodnight you. The book Goodnight Moon is about a bunny who is saying goodnight to everything in sight. In this song Jason is ellaborating on this aspect and is talking more specifically to a girl. He doesnt want them to go to sleep yet cause them the morning will come to soon.

    (And don't go to bed yet, love, I think it's too early,
    And we just need a little time to ourselves.
    If my wall-clock tells me that it's four in the morning, I'll give it hell.)

    He saying goodnight moon because the morning is coming asnd he knows that she has to leave soon.

    'Cause I've been trying way too long to try and be the perfect song
    When our hearts are heavy burdens we shouldn't have to bear alone.

    he doesnt want to be alone. and wen he speaks about not caring the sun is rising hes saying he wants her to stay amd not to do watever it is she has to leave for. he also alludes to the book Goodnight Moon saying "Sitting in our bedrooms and read aloud like a passage from Goodnight Moon." saying goodnight to eachother.

    General CommentABuri kinda hit it right on the nose. It's about not wanting to go to sleep because he/she has to leave in the morning.

    When he says:
    "And there you were, and I saw my Juliet come graceful down the stairs,
    It's hard to miss the way her eyes light up the room and steal the air."
    it probably refers to the first time he saw her after a long time of not seeing her again.

    This is an amazing song, Go Radio is fantastic.

    General CommentYou know what I hate/love about this song? Even though it's really long for a song, whenever I hear the beginning of it, I can't turn it off; I HAVE to listen to the whole thing.

    General CommentEverybody has commented on what this song means, and I think you guys are pretty spot-on. I just needed to comment and say that this is such a good song. Go Radio does not wrong in my eyes. I could marry Jason just because I would want to be sung to sleep every night. I love his voice. Mmmmm.

    General CommentSee I definitely see this song about not wanting to go to bed because he realizes how much he loves this girl and he just can't understand how he ever went through life before her:

    So goodnight moon, and goodnight you, when you're all that I think about,
    All that I dream about, how'd I ever breathe without
    A goodnight kiss from Goodnight You?

    But even further than that, I love the Romeo and Juliet tie in. IN Romeo and Juliet Romeo constantly uses light and dark as a comparison for Juliet (she is the sun, a diamond in an Ethiop's ear, etc) and so does he:

    And there you were, as I saw my Juliet come graceful down the stairs,
    It's hard to miss the way her eyes light up the room and steal the air.

    And then the fact that they know the Sun is rising but they don't care brings in the Romeo and Juliet because after romeo and Juliet get married Romeo spends the night yet he has to leave the next morning because he killed Tybalt and is now exiled, but Juliet pretends the sun isn't actually coming up.

    And dream for me anything, but dream it in color about
    We know the sun's still rising and we don't care.

    Pretty much this is a great song and all of the allusions in it are amazing! I can't wait to see them on the 16th.

    General CommentI think Moon is a person because on the new album he sings "And daddy's sitting in the corner with Cash when Mr. Moon picks up the beat"

    Could be a coincidence! Thoughts?
