Midnight Summer Dream


Band: The Stranglers

Album: Feline (1982)


Woke up on a good day

And the world was wonderful

A midnight summer dream had me in its spell

I dreamt about an old man

Sat and watched the rain all night

He couldn't sleep a wink as all the drops fell

He told me of the beauty

Hidden in our foreheads

He told me of the ugliness

We show instead

And when we put a foot wrong do we

all the pain

A midnight summer dream as he watched the rain

Then at midnight he poured another drink

And bent my ear

After midnight we sat up half the night

Or maybe more

And he began to tell me what it was all for

I woke up in an armchair

He had gone I don't know where

Left me there to sit and look at the rain

Don't remember much at all

But his words were echoing

A midnight summer dream and then wake again

Maybe I'll never find him

Maybe he's gone forever

Maybe I'll have to sit here

Watching the weather

One thing's pretty certain helped me

Make it in the night

Showed me somewhere else between wrong and right

And at midnight if you can't sleep

Then I can bend your ear

After midnight we'll sit up half the night

Or maybe more

And I'll begin to tell you what it is all for

Wake up on a good day

And the world feels wonderful

Midnight summer dream has me in its spell.
