Allan Taylor - Chimes at Midnight



Looking out at the city through my window pane
Streets are shining in the falling rain
Taxis cruise the late-night bars
Watching the tail-lights of going-home cars
Watching the tail-lights of going-home cars

TV's shut down and the radio plays
Old time music from younger days
Phone up a DJ ask him to play a tune
For one of a thousand in love with the moon
For one of a thousand in love with the moon

Count down the miles and you run out of time
The chimes at midnight that blurred in the wine
The melody rolls into one long song
Round and round, on and on
Round and round, on and on
Again

But wasn't it good when the music played
When the people sang to the songs you made
Wasn't it good didn't it make you smile
Made you feel so good for a little while
Feel so good for a little while

So you're thinking it over and through the night
Watching the morning coming on light
No regrets, no cause to complain
You know you'd do it all over again
You know you'd do it all over again
Count down the miles and you run out of time
The chimes at midnight that blurred in the wine
The melody rolls into one long song
Round and round, on and on
Round and round, on and on
Again
