too late for goodnight

Too Late for Goodnight‘too late for goodnight …
i just want to see you
‘hope you don’t wake from the hallway light
i just want to hold you
but i guess it can wait
now you sleep tight

’cause i’m

too late for goodnight
too late for goodnight
so i turn on the t.v.
and the cold comfort of its pale blue light
like no one can see me
beneath the flickering waves of this kinescope tide

And I …
And I can’t make you feel
what I know isn’t real.

now i’m

too late for goodnight
so i just thought i’d call you
and try to make everything all right
i just want to hold you
so i should hang up –
i still have quite a drive

And i …
i can’t make you feel
what i know isn’t real.

‘too late for goodnight
too late…
i just want to see you
they tell me there’s room on the last flight
so I’ll just dream about you
beneath a blanket of stars
sleeping for miles and miles
