Icehouse – Goodnight Mr Matthews lyrics

I'm playing my cards on the table no secrets, no sense of direction
It's tough, baby, it's no party, I said something I lost a connection

And it's all I can do to forget about U, loving you is such a fascination
'Cause I've loved you so long and my love is so strong
But you know a certain party's missing

I'll sit by the window, now you sit anywhere that you want to
Sitting in the sunshine now we're hoping as we're supposed to do

If I get down on my knees, would you forgive me, please?
It's only that my heart is aching
& it's all over U not a thing I can do, li'l' pieces of my world are fallin'
It's a good night...good night...

"Goodnight, Mr. Matthews...Now no talking, the others are sleeping
There's always tomorrow (tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow)"
Better come back soon

'Cos I love only you, no other will do, lovin' you is such a fascination
And I've told you before, only you know the score
But you know a certain part is missing, if I
I go down on my knees, would you forgive me, please?
It's only that my heart is breaking, but it's
It's a very temporary thing, it just happens all the time
Little pieces of my love comes falling
It's a good night (oh oh) good night (good night, good night)
Good night (good night) good night (good night, good, good)
Good night (good night) good night (good night)
Good night (good night)
