  • All the things you hate I find fun
    Things you wanna see are just done
    I may regret if you're the right one
    But I can't avoid the midnight run

    I'll keep on going, I'll keep on going
    Til I find the right one
    I'll keep on growing, I'll keep on growing
    Til I find myself a new gun

    If we're meant to be together change the way you see the weather
    Live for now, forget forever
    We can still be in December
    If we're meant to be together change the way you see the weather
    Live for now, forget forever

    On another midnight run, sniffin for trouble, unlucky for some
    On another midnight run, I'll still be breathing come the morning sun
    It's hurting my eyes, it's hurting my ears
    I know, I know, I'm know there'll be tears
    You're hurting inside, been hurting for years
    I know, I know, I know there'll be tears
    But it's never that clear, clear

    All the things you said you don't like,
    Were helping me get high as a kite
    Someone promised me they wouldn't bite
    I guess I'm someone different at night

    I'll keep on going, I'll keep on going
    Til I my heart says no
    I'll keep on growing, I'll keep on growing
    Til I find myself a new show

    If we're meant to be together change the way you see the weather
    Live for now, forget forever
    We can still be in December
    If we're meant to be together change the way you see the weather
    Live for now, forget forever

    On another midnight run, sniffin for trouble, unlucky for some
    On another midnight run, I'll still be breathing come the morning sun
    It's hurting my eyes, it's hurting my ears
    I know, I know, I'm know there'll be tears
    You're hurting inside, been hurting for years
    I know, I know, I know there'll be tears
    But it's never that clear, clear

    [Rap:]
    Got a couple of skeletons in my closet
    Couple of skeletons in my bed
    Couple of skeletons in my wallet
    Couple of skeletons in my head
    I never shoulda listened to the serpent
    No one's perfect certainly it worked for me
    You've tasted sherbert so don't point your sticks at me

    I've read the ten commandments at large no harm ignoring parts of it
    I've had it up to here with the jargon
    Pardon? They're my rules I started
    Not saying that I don't feel guilty
    Silky smooth it's never gonna be
    But I'm looking at a man in the mirror right now and I'm not quite sure it's me

    On another midnight run, sniffin for trouble, unlucky for some
    On another midnight run, I'll still be breathing come the morning sun
    It's hurting my eyes, it's hurting my ears
    I know, I know, I'm know there'll be tears
    You're hurting inside, been hurting for years
    I know, I know, I know there'll be tears
    But it's never that clear, clear Writer/s: ELLIOT JOHN GLEAVE, JONATHAN BARRY GOOCH
