Goodnight, Good Guy

This song is by Collective Soul and appears on the album Hints, Allegations & Things Left Unsaid (1994).

Somebody told me 'bout a worn-out distraction,
That I, I let slip away
Then it comes back and rides my shoulders,
And burdens me every new day...

Well I'll just sit here like a slow burn-out
And try to figure how to do without, without you

Who's going to straighten me up,
When I'm leaning?
Who's going to soothe my heart,
When it's burning?
Who's going to be the one,
To tell me everything's all right?
Well, goodnight, good guy

I'll break the bread of a new day,
And wonder if faith will carry me along?
But days are longer as my heart gets weaker,
And I can only stay so strong...

Well I'll just sit here like a wounded soul,
Who's finding difficult to just let it go, let it go

...Well, if I let you sleep
...I'll let you fade off in the night, yeah
...I pray the Lord to keep
...I pray the Lord to hold you tight
...Well, goodnight
