Idlewild – Goodnight lyrics

You thought shyness was to blame
And you'd get to live your life again
When you get to wish everyone goodnight
As the crowd booed out your name
At least they spelt it right, so you don't complain
Why everyone is wishing you goodnight

And maybe I'm wrong
And maybe you're right
But I thought I was the only one who can say goodnight

It's your heroes who are to blame
Constantly saying things that they don't explain
Well that's too bad, but I still can't say goodnight
And I just can't stay tonight
I woke up saying goodnight
