Goodnight (Stars) (2011)

We're looking at the same stars,

You and I...

Miles apart,

Though I don't know why...

'Cause I should be there,

With you,

By your side,

And in your bed...

And I have to admit,

It's where I want to be the most...

And maybe,

If I was there with you,

Instead of here alone,

Then maybe I wouldn't be constantly drinking,

Drinking to forget,

Forget that you're all I want,

And all I think about,

Night and day,

Dreaming or awake,

24/7,

I love you even so...

Maybe if you'd let me be yours,

Then maybe we'd both be happier...

-Give me a good reason why not,

Then maybe I'll lay off it,

Drop it,

And back off a bit...

Instead,

I'm here,

You're there,

And we're both so alone...

We're both sleeping under the same stars,

Tonight.

Miles and miles apart...

Drinking alone,

Drinking to forget your face,

Forget your name...

Drinking out of desperation,

Depression...

Drinking again,

-If only so that I can get some sleep tonight...

Getting to fully know you,

Is gonna take longer than I thought,

That's all...

You know,

-I never thought I'd actually meet someone,

Who could possibly be more jaded then me...

And baby,

Oh!

We're looking at the same stars tonight,

Miles apart...

And yeah, 

I guess I've kinda got to admit,

That contentment is what I feel when I'm around you,

I've got to admit,

That I love how you haunt my every thought though...

And even though you've pretty much said otherwise,

I still wonder,

...Deep down...

Do I haunt you too?

-Oh well, 

It doesn't matter after all,

Goodnight my darling,

Goodnight my love...

Keep faith,

It's not all bad...

Sleep tight.
