AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Sometime Around Midnight

Go directly to iTunes and download this song. Get addicted like I did. Only don’t cry like I did… It’s SAD.


And it starts…
sometime around midnight
or at least that’s when
you lose yourself
for a minute or two

As you stand…
under the barlights
and the band plays some song
about forgetting yourself for a while
and the piano’s this melancholy soundcheck
to her smile
And that white dress she’s wearing
you haven’t seen her
for a while

But you know…
that she’s watching
She’s laughing, she’s turning
she’s holding her tonic like a crux
The room suddenly spinning
she walks up and asks how you are
so you can smell her perfume
you can see her lying naked in your arms

And so there’s a change…
in your emotions
and all of these memories come rushing
like feral waves to your mind
of the curl of your bodies
like two perfect circles entwined
and you feel hopeless, and homelss
and lost in the haze
of the wine

And she leaves…
with someone you don’t know
but she makes sure you saw her
she looks right at you and bolts
As she walks out the door
your blood boiling
your stomach in ropes
and when your friends say what is it
you look like you’ve seen a ghost

And you walk…
under the streetlights
and you’re too drunk to notice
that everyone is staring at you
and you so care what you look like
the world is falling
around you

You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her

and you know that she’ll break you
in two

  1. you have great taste in music.

    i love your header with the devil person in the pupil.

  2. I like! How do you find all this stuff?

  3. I love the tune. I was doing other things while listening, instead of reading the lyrics, and it seemed upbeat. I like that, because I needed a lift after today’s frightening events. More on that later, but probably not on Friday’s post.

  4. Mark: The whole Under the Blacklight cd (Rilo Kiley) is awesome, I highly recommend it. LMK if you’re interested. Also, I watched that portion of the Russell Crowe vid you described and definitely noticed of resemblance of “someone…” That could very well drive me a little nutso. I’ll let you know if it comes to me.
    Glad you liked the other music as well. There isn’t much out there by Airborne but everything I’ve found is excellent.
    Hope everything is ok with you, this sounded ominous… will be watching for your post.
    You need a hug???

    Brian: Glad you like this. My answer to your question may be a bit lengthy, may I email you?
