Now, right now
Look at the place I'm in
When I think about things that I could have done
It's impossible for me to pretend

But I see it now as the lights grow dim
And the world starts to close its eyes

I just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne

I hear the music playin'
But I no longer understand
Around the corner, down the street
It's got to be better than where I am

I see it all now, as the light grows dim
And the world starts to close its eyes

I just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne

I just wanted to say goodnight
Just wanted to see if everything was alright
Just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne

Time goes by, oh, so quietly
Hazy days and memories
And in the end there was only me
Wouldn't have been, I ask sometimes

But I see myself inside this rhyme
Enjoyed what I had back then
Would I do it again?
Well, I see it now as the lights grow dim

I just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne
I just wanted to say goodnight
I just wanted to see if every thing's alright

Just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne
I just wanted to say goodnight
I just wanted to see if every thing's alright

I just wanted to say goodnight
Sweet Suzanne
