Song Lyric Sunday : Say goodnight and Go!

Song Lyric Sunday

Fresh  from  an idea  from HELEN ESPINOSA’S  blog.  Here is  the  pingback

My  song  this  week , my  second  week,  is  an old  favourite  of  mine   from  Imogen Heap,” Say  goodnight  and  go. ‘

On  the  face of it  this  is  a very  happy  little  song  but on  closer  listening  to the lyrics  you  discover  that  it  is  a song

about a  stalker, who is infatuated  with  a  lad  she knows…..   Her  love is  totally  unrequited,she  wants  more  than  he has

to offer ! I  don’t  know  why  I just  love  the  song !

IMOGEN HEAP LYRICS

 “Goodnight And Go”

Say goodnight and go.
Woah woah. Woah woah

Skipping beats, blushing cheeks I am struggling
Daydreaming, bed scenes in the corner café
And then I’m left in bits recovering tectonic tremblings
You get me every time

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home, you’ve got your headphones on and you’re dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot you taking everything off watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine flicking through the TV relaxed and reclining
And you think you’re alone…

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

One of these days, you’ll miss your train and come stay with me
We’ll have drinks and talk about things, any excuse to stay awake with you
You’ll sleep here, I’ll sleep there, but then the heating may be down again
at my convenience
we’d be good, we’d be great together.

[Sigh]
Go!

Say goodnight and go,
why’s it always always
goodnight and go
Darling not again
Goodnight and go

    Love it! I’ve always really liked Imogen Heap, I just haven’t listened to too much of her music. This one was good! Thanks for sharing, Willow! 🙂

    Oh as an aside Willow, I just did a guest post (fiction) over at Cordelia’s Mom http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2015/08/31/gramps-guest-post-by-paul-curran/ I would be honored if you had a chance to drop by for a read and comment – this is the first fiction I’ve written and I’m eager for suggestions.
