Hey, we've never said goodbyes
But their eulogies would not suffice
I whispered a curse when they lowered your coffin
Cast the first handful of earthen shroud
Darkness turns inside out
Here lies a wraith to whom I'm mirror bound
You swore you'd bury me but now
Who stands on your plot with forget me nots?

Your lips have gone cold, your face is ashen
There's exes in your eyes
For years your shadow has cast a dark pall on my path
Now I see the light
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever

They never sent for a man of the cloth
But this won't take long
Here lies a tyrant equaled by no other
Here lies Caligula's jilted lover
A devotee to guilt and spite
Here lies a lightning rod
For whom I can't separate love and hate
Tears by your headstone where grass will no more grow

Your lips have gone cold, your face is ashen
There's exes in your eyes
For years your shadow has cast a dark pall on my path
Now I see the light
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever

The light is fading
It's getting hazy
The light is fading
The end is coming...
The end is coming...
The end is coming...
The end is coming soon

Your lips have gone cold, your face is ashen
There's exes in your eyes
For years your shadow has cast a dark pall on my path
Now I see the light
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever
Come on Carrie Anne, don't take this bad
It's only goodnight forever

Goodnight forever
Carrie Anne
