Paroles Midnight

Le - modifié le - Par .

I work the mill
The same as my father and my brothers, too
My mother works there
She has ever since she left school
But today they all got let go
I guess I'll have to keep this job

Tonight
I looked at the stars burning bright
An empty house
A lot like ours
And never more

And I'll let go
With nothing left to show
What once slept hard
Will come down
At midnight

People above us don't come up this river no more
This town is like a stone
We haven't seen the sun for days
And I'm here working on my own
And I wish I could leave

But tonight,
Under the stars
The building's burning bright
A heavy hope
That once was ours
And nevermore

But I'll let go
With nothing left to show
What once slept hard
Will come down
At midnight

But tonight
We'll pull it away
The stars'll be burning bright
Nothing more
But this house
Will tell the story

And I'll let go with nothing left to show
What once slept hard
Will come down
At midnight

Oh
