ONE KISS GOODNIGHT
Lori McKenna


Once you saw the sun following me
you knew I'd never be the one to fulfill your prophecy
How dare I love you, what gives me the right
Baby give me one kiss goodnight...

We lie on our backs and the sun is fleeting
You never promised me the world
and if you did I mistook your meaning
So you can speak to me in metaphors and lies
Baby it's okay to give me one kiss goodnight...

We've been through this all before
We're just pushing along and searching for more
But I'm telling you to open up your eyes
and close them again and give me one kiss goodnight...

We'll never make it this way day after day
When "I love you" just becomes another phrase to say
Still there's something when you look me in the eye
Really look at me and give me one kiss goodnight...

Yeah, one kiss goodnight...

Look at how we've captured ourselves here
We're holding on to something that's mostly fear
But I'm telling you to open up your eyes
and close them again and give me one kiss goodnight...

Yeah, one kiss goodnight...

One kiss goodnight...
One kiss goodnight....

One kiss goodnight, one kiss goodnight, one kiss goodnight...

Alright, one kiss goodnight, one kiss goodnight, one kiss goodnight...
