"GOODNIGHT" as written by and Aaron Lael Zigman....
And now that I
Face the world with pain inside
Strange but I
Can't understand the reasons why
Forever is a word that I cannot describe
And then the time we say goodnight

It makes no difference wrong or right
The time has come to say goodnight

And how could I
Be so sure but be so wrong
And how could I
Have will so weak with a mind so strong
And only I
Can tell the difference right or wrong

It makes no difference wrong or right
The time has come to say goodnight
It makes no difference wrong or right
I guess it's best we say goodnight

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song... i never expected it to be so good. I think it's about someone who is finally realizing that a relationship is over, and it's time to say goodbye.

    General CommentIve been listening to DKL for a lil over a year now and this song still gets me everytime.
    I think its not only about a relationship but also a lot about just knowing that everything has a time and place. And that knowing that is one of the greatest lessons.

    General CommentYeah. this is in my opinions DKL's best song. It really brings out emotion, and makes you think about things (whether you want to or not). Brillo pad got the meaning just right.

    General CommentThis song is all about getting over a relationship with someone. This part says that even if it's going to hurt, you gotta do it.

    General CommentI love this song. I'm actually listening to it right now. Me and this guy went out, and i broke up w/him cuz I thought we should just be friends, but he likes me a lot more. He gets so mad whenever i like someone else or do something w/someone else. It hurts him so much. I am so sick of hurting cuz I care about him so much, but he doesn't understand. I can't really imagine what it would be like if we just stopped talking, but I don't know what i would do. But, the only way i can stop hurting him is to make him go away....... *StEpHaNiE*
