Midnight Hour

Album: Revolutions Per Minute (2010)
  • When I get home
    Unplug the phone
    Turn out the lights
    I serve this song
    I'm gonna call my baby
    Tell him that I'm coming
    See, I been gone for way too long

    He needs some lovin'
    See last night on the phone
    He told me that he missed me
    (told me that he missed me)
    And I listened to his song,
    it sounded kinda sexy
    (Check it out, I said, um, I said)

    My baby on the job, I know she's workin' hard, she independent
    and I love that show, I swear to God
    The way she get up in it, no she ain't really got no fear
    No I don't make it rain, but still I'm the one that got her bed
    I need her all at once, I been on tour for months
    Her body like a stage, as soon as I hit, I tore it up
    She love how I perform, come get a hype like her favorite song
    We riders of the storm, touch me baby like the dawn
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the nighttime comes and I see my baby
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the midnight hour and I see my
    I'll be home tonight

    I'll be by his side
    Can't wait till the night begin, can't wait to let her in,
    Ready to handle this, the candle's lit, the light's is dim
    So dark be Innervision, and she might lose her and inhibitions,
    hourglass figure make it last past ten
    Four hours last long no inhibition

    I'll come every once in a while, just to let her know her love in town
    I'm here to stay so there ain't no way I know she love the sound of that
    I'll make her love come down to earth, that's worth another round
    Can't take another clown, in love with the kid cause he underground
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the nighttime comes and I see my baby
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the midnight hour and I see my

    I'll be home tonight
    I'll be by his side
    Somebody call my baby, say I'm on the way now (say I'm on my)
    See, I been going crazy thinking 'bout you late nights
    (thinkin' bout you late nights)
    The way my heart reacts it lets me know I need him
    (Baby, I need you too)
    See I been getting flashbacks,
    I just got to see him (I just gotta see him)
    (Lemme tell ya what she did)

    Hopped out the taxicab, she almost didn't pay,
    he let me get your bags, I got some things to say
    I know you miss me girl, you know I miss you too,
    we kissing taking turns, let's go to the room
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the nighttime comes and I see my baby
    Ooh, said I just can't wait till the midnight our and I see my

    I'll be home tonight
    I'll be by his side
    When I get home
    Unplug the phone
    Turn out the lights
    I serve this song
    He said when you get home
    Unplug the phone
    The lights is off
    You know its on (know its on)
    Ooh that I made it home,
    baby lock that door and be ready for me
    Ooh and it's been some months
    and we don't have long but I'm here now
    I made it home tonight
    I'll be by your side
    Don't worry 'bout the time
    I made it home tonight
