Wrong Side of Midnight

© Faymusic Publishing Written and composed by Mike Silver

He’s too close for comfort to some misty dream
Rather be part of something
That ain’t what it seems
The eyes behind the smile never match up to the grin
Why should she trust a man like him
He’s the wrong side of midnight again

He heads straight for the shower when he walks through the door
Hangs up his suit and his shirt on the floor
He won’t look in her eyes when she speaks out his name
She knows its no good to pretend

Its so hard not knowing it plays on her mind
She looks through his clothing oh what does she find
Theatre reservations second row stalls
For the week she’s away

He calls from the car says he won’t be on time
He’ll have to pass on the weekend cos his job’s on the line
Kiss the kids for me honey
I’ll see ‘em sometime

Wrong side of midnight
Wrong side of midnight

He talks on the phone when he thinks she can’t hear
Its the limo for him and limbo for her
He’s the wrong side of midnight lying again
Why should she trust a man like him
He’s always out when he’s s’posed to be in
Love’s a bitch when it gets to end
Cos he’s the wrong side of midnight agai
