lyrics

sign says i have nothing left to give
but you can't read, now can you?
i'm desperate for some quiet, but you don't know what that is
i've stayed here longer than i planned to
your honey words, they hold no meaning
i can't even feel it when we kiss
you’ve confused the dawn with the evening
me, i have nothing left to give

i'm never gonna love you
you can never make this right
it's time for me to leave now
no one's gonna win this fight
i'm never gonna love you
you can never make this right
it's time for me to leave now
goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

the things you want, you won’t find them here
and, really, you don’t even want them
you ride these rails like a phantom engineer
you can’t even remember why you haunt them
i’ve burned your letters, buried your graphs
i’m not going to need them anymore
yesterday is over, today has turned to ash
find something new to look for

i'm never gonna love you
you can never make this right
it's time for me to leave now
no one's gonna win this fight
i'm never gonna love you
you can never make this right
it's time for me to leave now
goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
