The Midnight - River of Darkness

  • Опубликовано: 20 окт 2017
  • The Midnight "River of Darkness" from the album "Nocturnal" (2017).
    ***LYRICS BELOW***
    Look I know you miss her man, but..
    But you can't keep doing this to yourself
    She's moved on
    Meanwhile you're out there just
    Walking the streets at night
    Alone, in a river of darkness
    [Verse 1: Tyler Lyle]
    Glowing windows in the buildings from the elevated train
    I see a thousand different stories pass
    And faces without names
    Forget why I came here
    And I forget why I stay
    And wonder if they'd notice
    If I slipped away
    [Verse 2: Tyler Lyle]
    What if I kept going
    If I don't get off tonight
    What if I ride this to the edges
    Through the darkness to the light
    [Chorus: Tyler Lyle]
    Could I find you there?
    Could I find you there?
    If I slipped away?
    [Verse 3: Tyler Lyle]
    What if there's no answer
    We’re all just hearts that have to fight
    Through the dangers of the rapids
    Through the darkness to the light
    [Chorus: Tyler Lyle]
    Could I find you there?
    Could I find you there?
    If I slipped away?
    Look I know you miss her man, but..
    But you can't keep doing this to yourself
    She's moved on
    Meanwhile you're out there just
    Walking the streets at night
    Alone, in a river of darkness

    Was just listening to this song as I walked in the rain in the late evening the cold rain and street lights reflecting off the wet streets as cars seldom pass by with this song in the background. Was amazing.

    She might have moved on but she'd notice if you slipped away. So do it. Leave her in your dust. She'll regret it and you won't care cause you'll have moved on.
