"Long Distance Lullaby" as written by and Brian David James Briggs....
Goodnight, goodnight, the sun is long out of sight
And I stagger home by the streetlight
Goodnight, goodnight, went out after work tonight
Only meant to stay for a swift pint

And I'm giving you a call though I'm in no fit state
And I know it's far too late
And I'm hardly thinking straight
'Cos I've missed you ever since you moved away from here
And it's not the same this year
I wish I could teleport you here tonight to say

Goodnight soulmate, I know I'm in no state
To call you up and keep you up so late
But I had to hear you talking in my ear
I've been so lonely since you left me here

So goodnight, I'm back in through the door now
Here we go bouncing down the hall now
Goodnight, goodnight soulmate, oh but if you were here tonight
We could climb up through the skylight

Remember lying in your attic on those summer nights
Our hands trembling side by side
Those were the best days of my whole life
And now I know you're moving on and I've been trying too
Trying not to speak to you
But I still can't sleep here without you to wish me a

Goodnight soulmate, I know I'm in no state
To call you up and keep you up so late
But I just had to hear you talking in my ear
I've been so lonely since you left me here

And I've got my friends but I can't really talk to them
Like I can talk to you
Remember how we used to stay up very very late and smoke
And listen did I say how much I miss you now?
I'm keeping you from sleeping now
I only called to wish you could be here tonight
To hold me while I'm wishing you a

Goodnight soulmate, I know I'm in no state
To call you up and keep you up so late

    General CommentI know this song so well. Every single time I'm drunk I always find a way back to my ex and end up telling her absolutely everything.

    The lyrics highlight that sense of pain so well.

    A drunk mind speaks a sober heart.
