The doorbell rings at 5am again, but it's not who you'd expect
It's a man in dark blue slacks and a badge to match
He says, "I'm sorry to come her like this, miss,
But I've come to take him in
There's been an incident and the evidence points here."
In the back room the last shot's chambered
He screams, "I'd rather go out than go with them!
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye..."

She screams, she screams, "How could you let this happen?"
The hole in his head has left a bigger hole in the family
What about the child he didn't know she bears?
How could she bear to watch him grow up without his daddy?
So she dries her tears and she disappears
How the hell can she live with what he left her
When despair is all she has?

So goodnight, goodnight
Hope your sweet dreams see you off well
It's so awful to know that you're waking up nightly
In cold sweat screaming his name
How could he leave this all on you?
Now you'd rather give up than see this through
So you'll take these pills and utter your last goodbye
