  • Meet me in the middle of the day
    Let me hear you say everything's okay
    Bring me southern kisses from your room
    Meet me in the middle of the night
    Let me hear you say everything's alright
    Let me smell the moon in your perfume

    Oh, Gods and years will rise and fall
    And there's always something more
    It's lost in talk, I waste my time
    And it's all been said before
    While further down behind the masquerade the tears are there
    I don't ask for all that much I just want someone to care
    That's right now

    Meet me in the middle of the day
    Let me hear you say everything's okay
    Come on out beneath the shining sun

    Meet me in the middle of the night
    Let me hear you say everything's alright
    Sneak on out beneath the stars and run

    Oh yeah, oh yeah yeah, oh yeah

    It's king and queen and we must go down now beyond the chandelier
    Where I won't have to speak my mind and you won't have to hear
    Shreds of news and afterthoughts and complicated scenes
    We'll huddle down behind the light and fade like magazines

    Meet me in the middle of the day
    Let me hear you say everything's okay
    Bring me southern kisses from your room

    Hey hey, meet me in the middle of the night
    Let me hear you say everything's alright
    Let me smell the moon in your perfume

    Oh now, meet me in the middle of the day
    Let me hear you say everything's okay
    Let me see you smiling back at me

    Hey, meet me in the middle of the night
    Let me hear you say everything's alright
    Hold me tight and love and loving's free

    Woah yeah Writer/s: STEVE FORBERT
