Ot; (john prine, john mellencamp, dwight yoakam, ):

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

Chorus
But I see it now as the lights grow dim
And the world starts to close it's eyes
I just wanted to say goodnight, sweet suzanne
I hear the music playing, but I no longer understand
Around the corner, down the street
It's got to better than where I am

Repeat chorus

I just wanted to say goodnight
Just wanted to see if everything was all right
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 light grows dim
I just wanted to say goodnight, sweet suzanne
I just wanted to say goodnight
I just wanted to seee if everything's all right
Just wanted to say goodnight, sweet suzanne

(repeat last verse)
