Thom Pace - Midnight School Blues

Midnight!
I'm goin' out of my mind
and it's not right
to pretend that everything's fine!
I tried to learn what pleases you
But all my lessons fell behind!

All the time I thought I had it
But you know it never seemed right
Your lessons made me stop and wonder
Didn't need them every night
I can only learn so much at once
When class begins around midnight

Yeah it's midnight!
I'm goin' out of my mind
and it's not right
to pretend that everything's fine!
I tried to learn what pleases you
But all my lessons fell behind!

You never tried to understand me
Never tried to take me away
But you always wanted me to notice
Everything you tried to say
But eventually I realized that nothing heard
Is everything gained

And now it's midnight!
I'm goin' out of my mind
and it's not right
to pretend that everything's fine!
I tried to learn what pleases you
But all my lessons fell behind!

Well maybe I could leave tomorrow
And I'm sure I'd get along fine
I'd tell you that I have to move on
Go someplace that you can't find!
But I know you'd only track me down
And make me realize it's time
It's time!

The time is midnight
I'm goin' out of my mind
and it's not right
to pretend that everything's fine!
I tried to learn what pleases you
But all my lessons fell behind!

Oh midnight!
I'm goin' out of my mind
and it's just not right
To pretend that everything's fine...
