      About "Across From Midnight"

      Lyrics for Tony Joe White - "Across From Midnight"

      It's come down to just the two of us
      Me and my shadow on the wall
      Radio playing softly somewhere down the hall
      And over in the next room
      The hollow sound of a cigarette cough
      Oh I'm sitting across from midnight
      And morning's a long way off

      There's a fire in a trash can
      In the alley below
      The down and outers gather round
      Sippin' wine and talkin' low
      We're companions of the night time
      We got no place to go
      Sittin' across from midnight
      And time draggin' by too slow

      You can feel the night when you're all alone
      There's comfort in the room you keep hangin' on
      You wait until the dawn

      The skeletons in the closet
      March around like a platoon
      I guess it's too much to ask for
      I need some breathing room
      And the tall city buildings
      They cover up the moon
      Oh I'm sitting across from midnight
      And morning can't come too soon

      The early morning hours
      Bring out the darkness of your thoughts
      And you're sitting across from midnight
      And morning a long way off
