“Say Goodnight and Go” and How to Love

I have been told that I’m a Romantic but I don’t think so. I’d rather think of myself as a Romantic Realist. A Romantic Realist? Well, “Romance is the creation of an atmosphere where she feels unconditional love and appreciation.” Maybe it’s the the fact that am invited to weddings throughout the year. I get to see the bride’s anticipation and the effort to make sure that every detail is handled with care (yeah, I know…it’s Christmas.) What makes great love songs so great is their innocence, commitment,

Say goodnight and go.
Woah woah. Woah woah

Skipping beats, blushing cheeks I am struggling
Daydreaming, bed scenes in the corner café
And then i’m left in bits recovering tectonic tremblings
You get me every time

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home, you’ve got your headphones on and you’re dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot you taking everything off watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine flicking through the TV relaxed and reclining
And you think you’re alone…

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

One of these days, you’ll miss your train and come stay with me
We’ll have drinks and talk about things, any excuse to stay awake with you
You’ll sleep here, i’ll sleep there, but then the heating may be down again
at my convenience we’d be good, we’d be great together.

[Sigh]
Go!

Say goodnight and go,
why’s it always always
goodnight and go
Darling not again
Goodnight and go
