  • Lyrics
  • According to the inset sheet, "Midnight Rocks" runs to exactly four minutes. Arguably the weakest track on the album, and surprisingly weak lyrically for an Al Stewart song:
    Don't let our love be broken
    Upon the midnight rocks

    Indeed - it was, surprisingly, released as a single in preference to the obvious "Paint By Numbers". Unfortunately, even the heavy production and extended jazz type soloing can't save it. >>
