I washed the dishes poured out the old wine
Called a new friend for the second time
It's not bad this brand new life
It's clean and it's sharp like a brand new knife

I pull up the covers and curl up tight
Turn down the sound turn off the light
Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)

You're not here you're not even there
Out of my heart, out of my hair
I can't roll away this missing piece
You could only ever want what I could never ever be 

I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
Turn down the sound turn off the light
Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)

How can I be okay if I'm pulling away
All the things that held together my life
All I want tonight is to touch you and kiss you
But I only wish you 
Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight)

I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
Turn down the sound turn off the light
Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)

I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
Turn down the sound turn off the light
Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)

Goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
Goodnight (goodnight)
Goodnight, goodnight my honey just 
Just sleep tight sleep tight my babyâ?¦
