Never Say Goodnight

Here we go again
Off a cliff I fall and then
You turn and you run and you act like you didn’t
Say the things that swept me in
But I won’t let you pretend
You don’t know how this would end
Two lost souls who were meant for each other
A hope I must defend
 
And I won’t give up this time
No I can’t back down this time
You’ll say to my face you don’t love me and mean it
Before I let you say goodbye
We’re worth another try
Baby don’t turn out the lights
I’ll dance in the dark and I’ll scream out I love you
But I’ll never say goodnight
 
Goodnight… Goodnight…
 
We’ve been here before
Knee deep… then cower back to shore
Dare to live. Risk it all
On what some die waiting for
You’re so afraid to feel
To see that we are the ideal
Abandon the fright, walk out on a limb
And believe in something real
 
Cause I won’t give up this time
No I can’t back down this time
Say to my face that you love me and mean it
And please don’t ever say goodbye
We’re worth another try
Baby don’t turn out the lights
I’ll dance in the dark and I’ll scream out I love you
But I’ll never say goodnight
 
And I see you when I dream
You’re in every breath I breathe
So don’t say, and I won’t say
Don’t say, no don’t say, don’t say, baby don’t say
 
Goodnight… Goodnight…
