The city streets are empty, it's beginning to feel like dawn
The lights have gone out, the sun is coming on
We've been standing here for hours watching the river flow
You walked into my life tonight but if you've got to go

Say goodnight while there's still a star to wish on
Say goodnight while the moon is still in your eyes
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a while
Then say goodnight but never say goodbye

I've been saving all my secrets, spending my time alone
I've given up on the life I used to know
I've been waiting for one person to love me like a friend
You walked into my life tonight but if it's got to end

Say goodnight while there's still a star to wish on
Say goodnight while the moon is still in your eyes
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a while
Then say goodnight but never say goodbye

Oh, it's easy now to tell you how I'm dreaming 'bout tomorrow
'Cause you'll be there to share that dream with me
But now it's time to close your eyes put this night away
And keep it safe, a perfect memory

Say goodnight while there's still a star to wish on
Say goodnight while the moon is still in your eyes
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a while
Then say goodnight but never say goodbye

Oh, oh, oh
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a little while
Then say goodnight but never say goodbye

Say goodnight while there's still a star to wish on
Say goodnight while the moon is still in your eyes
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a while
Then say goodnight but don't you say goodbye

Say goodnight while there's still a star to wish on
Say goodnight while the moon is still in your eyes
Let me touch your smile and hold you for a while
