Two Midnights

And I watch your hair bounce as you walk out that door
and a grin lays on my face
but it was only two midnights and you know it was nothing more
no more than a quick taste

you left me in the dark sitting there by the phone
but I had the tunes up loud
I guess you thought you were leaving me broken and alone
as you slipped back to the crowd

and now
two midnights later
I’m movin’ along
the sun’s up this morning
and two midnights are gone
now I’m back on the street
you know that’s where I belong
the sun’s bright today
and two midnights are gone

when I hung up the phone at least I knew where I stood
I knew how you felt inside
I won’t forget even though I know I should
it was a damn good ride

maybe you’re not worth me even writing this down
I just thought it had to be said
and I know it’s not worth me even waiting around
there’s too much on in my head

and now
two midnights later
I’m movin’ along
the sun’s up this morning
and two midnights are gone
now I’m back on the street
you know that’s where I belong
the sun’s bright today
and two midnights are gone

and I still remember those nights by your side
but now my head is clear
and I won’t forget your kiss or your arms open wide
but now I’m gone, my dear

sometime you might come lookin’ to find me in the night
but I can’t wait for you there
someday you’ll remember and you’ll know I was right
but it’s all over now, baby blue

and now
two midnights later
I’m movin’ along
the sun’s up this morning
and two midnights are gone
now I’m back on the street
you know that’s where I belong
the sun’s bright today
and two midnights are gone

no, I won’t forget your kiss or your arms open wide
and don’t you forget those nights by my side
and this is gonna have to be the end of the song
because the sun’s bright today and two midnights are gone

(from “Part Five: An Album Full”)

Sometimes, it’s not forever. And you both know it. I find it hard to hear this sung now all these years later. I’m sure it sounds good, though. BTW, I just notice now that in the first line she’s walking out the door and a few lines later he’s sitting there by the phone. ‘Sup?
