Second Best (Callahan)

Before you go There's a couple of things I'd like to get off my chest Go ahead and reserve your place In hearts for second best I take what it is I can get and move along Right down to the very words You used to keep me hanging on A lullaby for stone hearts Politely wrapped in gold Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight In the calm before the storm I had found the strength to carry on Oh, I wish I knew you were a Sucker for sad songs Something about that night wasn't quite right The song came through the speakers like a sound track Through the fading lights in both our eyes At the end of the day I'll send this song your way Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight Its not you but the moments I miss And nothing wakes me more than the Transparent kiss, that I fight to deny And in the wake of the storm I found the means to carry on Its just the way we are, The way we've been from the start Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight
