The Midnight - River of Darkness

Δημοσιεύτηκε στις 20 Οκτ 2017
The Midnight "River of Darkness" from the album "Nocturnal" (2017).
Look I know you miss her man, but..
But you can't keep doing this to yourself
She's moved on
Meanwhile you're out there just
Walking the streets at night
Alone, in a river of darkness
[Verse 1: Tyler Lyle]
Glowing windows in the buildings from the elevated train
I see a thousand different stories pass
And faces without names
Forget why I came here
And I forget why I stay
And wonder if they'd notice
If I slipped away
[Verse 2: Tyler Lyle]
What if I kept going
If I don't get off tonight
What if I ride this to the edges
Through the darkness to the light
[Chorus: Tyler Lyle]
Could I find you there?
Could I find you there?
If I slipped away?
[Verse 3: Tyler Lyle]
What if there's no answer
We’re all just hearts that have to fight
Through the dangers of the rapids
Through the darkness to the light
[Chorus: Tyler Lyle]
Could I find you there?
Could I find you there?
If I slipped away?
Look I know you miss her man, but..
But you can't keep doing this to yourself
She's moved on
Meanwhile you're out there just
Walking the streets at night
Alone, in a river of darkness


  • Could I find you there? T_T

  • This song takes me so far away I can’t take it. One of my favs

  • It's a masterpiece, tears me apart... because i'm also in a river of darkness...

  • 내차 세팅이여 ㅋㅋ

  • Whoa what just happened..

  • Long life to The Midnight ❤

  • Love this! Glad real music is making a comeback (I'm trying to do my part!).

  • If I slipped away.....

  • nice background image and song

  • Was just listening to this song as I walked in the rain in the late evening the cold rain and street lights reflecting off the wet streets as cars seldom pass by with this song in the background. Was amazing.

  • what's your point

  • She might have moved on but she'd notice if you slipped away. So do it. Leave her in your dust. She'll regret it and you won't care cause you'll have moved on.

  • Heard this on a synth pop playlist and had to come , comment, like and share.... good work:). As with most the other comments this reminds me of something that would be on a mid-80’s movie soundtrack, if that was the vibe you was going for, you hit the nail on the head :D

  • Like straight out of a Miami Vice hit video with that tragic edge.

    • That's because they ripped it off from Glenn Frye's "You belong to the City" This is still a very good song though it had some help

    • They really seem to have nailed that melancholy post-apocalyptic synthwave vibe, Maester. And I love them for it :D Welcome to the channel, subscribe to keep updated with their latest album!

    • Did it in my old Mitsubishi from the 90s in the mountain roads here in Costa Rica. It´s such a bittersweet song.

    • Same. I play this every time I get into my 2000 Toyota Sienna.

    • Same in my 1995 D21, my 1994 Del sol, and when the weather's good, its goes great through headphones while on my 1992 XJ600.

  • So good.

  • Un altro capolavoro...

  • I'm walking alone at night for her...How could I stop? Can't....She's my midnight dream...It didn't last...My life stopped...Now I'm lost in the darkness of the night trying to find my way back home...My tears are flowing like a river of darkness carving the shielding of my soul, to reveal my light again...She was my own light must shine again so that I can get out of this...I must be my own beacon....but I really miss her....

    • You'll find love again.
