Goodnight (Lyrics) - Matt Henshaw

She drinks black coffee in the morning
That's what stains her teeth
Then she'll put on a night dress
She's not lost but how she roams the streets
She treads the boulevard floor
And then she'll go back and tread some more
Although she's seen it all before
And no doubt she will see it all again

Goodnight my lady
Goodnight farewell
You don't need to tell me
Some things they are better left unsaid

She stops, fumbles for change
Lights one more cigarette
Holds her hands up to the rain
Just to stop herself from getting wet
Though that is the way that she would usually like to be
She knows tonight that it's not likely
Because she's seen it all before
And no doubt she will see it all again

Goodnight my lady
Goodnight farewell
You don't need to tell me
Some things they are better left unsaid

Goodnight my lady
Goodnight farewell
You don't need to tell me
Some things they are better left unsaid
Goodnight
Goodnight
You can't stop me now
Goodnight my lady
