Goodnight my love Bless your heart and sleep tight my love. Goodnight.
Never thought that I'd Ever want to be leaving you. You're the dearest girl I've known And there's nothing that I own That I wouldn't want to give to you.
But late last night after we kissed goodnight And I started home. I met a girl so sweet and caring And so very alone. And then I gazed into her eyes And knew how much she wanted me And her lips were just as soft as could be.
Goodnight my love Bless your heart and sleep tight my love Goodnight.
No tears that I could cry Would justify my hurting you And my words would sound so cheap If I said that I meant to keep All the promises I made to you.
I tried to tell her that I loved you But she just didn't care And in the dead of night she pulled the ribbon Out of her hair. And there was nothing in the world That could have made me let her go Girl I'm sorry but I just love her so.
Goodnight my love Goodnight my love Sleep tight my love Goodnight my love
It's so hard to say goodbye to you The words they don't sound right So I'll say the only words I used to say When I held you so tight. Goodnight my love Goodnight my love Sleep tight my love Goodnight my love
