Goodnight to the river
Goodnight to the harbor lights
Goodnight to the city
Goodnight will never be the same
Because of you.

I can sit here drinking licorice tea
And stare at the golden moon
Just picturing the way things used to be
The hot summer in the middle of June.

You were there in your peach silk dress
Laughing at me, 'cause I was a mess
A tall glass of lemonade
Come on, let's go lay down in the shade.

It really wasn't that long ago
It really wasn't that long ago.

I can sit here in my rocking chair
Down by the riverside
I could think about your golden hair
But I'll think about my foolish pride.

You were there, beside me
Lay down your head, sweet Rosa Marie
Just you and me and the distant hound
Just one kiss and the sun went down.

It really wasn't that long ago
It really wasn't that long ago.

Let the river pull me under
Down to the cold, cold blue
Let the lightning and the thunder
Have just one crack and I''m through
Let the stars choose my number
But I ain't going down, not because of you.

I can sit here all alone
And howl as the moon goes down
A burning fever down in my bones
I'm almost certain that I'll come around.

The roller coaster and the ferris wheel
Cotton candy, yeah, whatever you feel
Just hold my hand and hold it tight
A candy apple in the middle of the night

It really wasn't that long ago
It really wasn't that long ago.

Let the city drag me down
Like she just might do
'Til I'm scraping the ground
With holes in my shoes
With my head spinning round
But I ain't going down, not because of you.

Yeah, because of you
Because of you
Because of you.
