[Intro]
G C/A Bm C D

[Verse]
C/A               D                     G D
   Sometimes it’s hard to say goodnight,
C/A               D                       G D/F#
   Sometimes it’s hard to do what’s right.
Em                    G/B
   But it would be so easy,
           C/A                G
   Just to stay here with you.
C/A                   D
   But it would be so foolish;
                   Em     D  C
   Could break our hearts in two.

[Verse]
C/A               D                     G D
   Some of our friends don’t understand,
C/A                     D                    G D/F#
   They must think that we’re completely mad.
Em                            G/B
   But I know if you take for granted,
       C/A                   G
   The gift so rich and rare,
C/A                    D
   You run the risk of waking up,
           Em     D   C     D
   To find love’s not there.

[Chorus]
             G               C/A
   It can be hard to say goodnight,
Bm                    C/A
   When it’s cold and rainy.
        G                 C/A
   Your eyes are warm and bright,
Bm               C/A
   It just seems crazy.
   Em                   G/B
   Lord, please give us strength,
                 C/A
   ’Cause deep inside we know,
          Em                 G/B
   It’s because we love each other,
          C/A     Cm
   That I have to go.

[Transistion]
G C/A Bm C D

[Verse]
C/A                           D                   G D
   The kind of thing we seem afraid to talk about;
C/A               D                  G D/F#
   Try to keep it hidden deep inside.
Em                  G/B
   But everyone has feelings,
       C/A                 G
   And everyone goes wrong,
C/A           D
   So draw us closer,
           Em    D    C
   Let the flame burn strong.

[Verse]
C/A             D                   G D
   They say sometimes love is blind,
C/A           D                       G D/F#
   I know the heart can rule the mind.
Em                         G/B
   ’Cause nothing that you ask of us,
              C/A               G
   Is without reason or good sense,
C/A                        D
   So when the doubts come knocking,
            Em  D C     D
   Lord, be our defence.

[Chorus]
             G               C/A
   It can be hard to say goodnight,
Bm                    C/A
   When it’s cold and rainy.
        G                 C/A
   Your eyes are warm and bright,
Bm               C/A
   It just seems crazy.
   Em                   G/B
   Lord, please give us strength,
                 C/A
   ’Cause deep inside we know,
          Em                 G/B
   It’s because we love each other,
          C/A     Cm
   That I have to go.

[End Chorus]
             G               C/A
   It can be hard to say goodnight,
Bm                    C/A
   When it’s cold and rainy.
        G                 C/A
   Your eyes are warm and bright,
Bm               C/A
   It just seems crazy.
   Em                   G/B
   Lord, please give us strength,
      C/A
   To do what’s right.
          Em                 G/B
   It’s because we love each other,
          C/A     Cm         G
   That I have to say, “Goodnight.”

[Outro]
C/A Bm C/A D G
