When the Day Met the Night

Album: Pretty. Odd (2008)
  • When the moon fell in love with the sun
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night

    When the sun found the moon
    She was drinking tea in a garden
    Under the green umbrella trees
    In the middle of summer

    When the moon found the sun
    He looked like he was barely hanging on
    But her eyes saved his life
    In the middle of summer (summer)

    In the middle of summer
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer (summer)
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    All was golden when the day met the night

    So he said, "Would it be all right
    If we just sat and talked for a little while
    If in exchange for your time
    I give you this smile?"

    So she said, "That's OK
    As long as you can make a promise
    Not to break my little heart
    Or leave me all alone in the summer."

    Well he was just hanging around
    Then he fell in love
    And he didn't know how
    But he couldn't get out
    Just hanging around
    Then he fell in love

    In the middle of summer
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer (summer)
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    All was golden when the day met the night

    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    In the middle of summer,summer,summer, summer
    The middle of summer, summer, summer, summer
    The middle of summer, summer, summer, summer
    In the middle of Writer/s: BRENDON URIE, GEORGE ROSS, JONATHAN WALKER, SPENCER SMITH

  • Clb from A Place, VaI love P!ATD and I think the new album shows real talent on their part. they are able to conform to anything. <3
  • Sarah from Philadelphia, PaThis song is actually about Ryan and his girlfriend Keltie. It's basically about how they met and how they've helped each other through difficult times and whatnot and how they've stuck together.
  • Latasha from Austin, TxYeah I also love northen downpour
    It's so beautiful! It gives me chills lol. At first when I heard some of their new CD i was like, woah!! Ew I don't like it. But now I'm listeing to it more, and I love it! The cd's are so diffrent but I love each and every song by them!!
  • Yareli from Amsterdam, NyTHANK you amanda. Finally someone who understands that a little versitility isn't such a bad THING!
  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmI Love it! Its like a little story! these boys are amazing!
  • Amanda from Evergreen, CoThis is absolutely my favorite song on the new album! It's just so beautiful. I have to say the CD Pretty. Odd. is SO different from the last one! When I listen to the old one and then the new one, it's like two different bands! But that is what I LOVE about PATD because it wouldn't be any good if they sounded exactly the same as the last one, am I right? So this is my favorite song and so is Northern Downpour. Good job PATD and keep it back! I'm glad they are back!
