lyrics

The city carved a silhouette
On the ocean after dark
Over The lonely and the holy 
And the red blood beating hearts

Up from the dirty black water
A shadow void form 
Raised itself out of the river
And it climbed upon the shore

Neon on black top 
There gentle rain downtown 
The shadow pooling underneath me
As it follows on the ground 

I kissed you when I saw you 
And I stared deep into your eyes 
I meant to say ‘I love you’ 
But instead I said goodbye 

Shadows in the city
I’m a stranger to myself
On these streets I’m someone else
Shadows in the city
Like a demon in the dark
Come to tear us apart

For all my good intentions
There's a shadow in this dark 
It comes to me infrequently 
And breaks your perfect heart

I don't know why I do it 
(I) Apologize but it's too Late
A single tear you leave me here and 
Shadow slips away 

Shadows in the city
I’m a stranger to myself
On these streets I’m someone else
Shadows in the city
Like a demon in the dark
Come to tear us apart

about

The Midnight Los Angeles, California

There is a Japanese term: Mono no aware. It means basically, the sad beauty of seeing time pass - the aching awareness of impermanence. These are the days that we will return to one day in the future only in memories.

The Midnight consists of Tyler Lyle (a songwriter from the Deep South) and Tim McEwan (a producer from Denmark).
