Goodnight Lyrics By Roy Orbison

    my lovely woman child
    i found you out running wild with someone new
    you’ve been untrue and everybody knows we’re through

    but i can’t say goodbye to you no matter what you do
    my heart won’t let you go although i know you go
    with someone new i think of you

    i think of how you kiss your tenderness
    with all of this i miss the way you say goodnight

    bittersweet your kisses when my heart still misses
    the way that things used to be but i know you’re strong for
    other arms you long for and you can never come back to me

    not just for yesterday tonight or tomorrow
    ah but forever
    i’ll hear you say goodnight goodnight
    goodnight turned out to be a lie
    and i can’t help it if i cry
    goodnight my love sleep tight my love
