FACE OF MIDNIGHT
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1997 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


TIME IS JEALOUS OF MY PRECIOUS YOUTH
OR SO I'M TOLD
AND THOSE WHO FOUND THE BITTER TRUTH
ARE NOW SO COLD
I HAVE THIS PRIZE IN MY POSSESSION
BUT IT WON'T LAST
THE WORLD IS MINE FOR JUST A SEASON
THAT'S FADING FAST

AND EVERY BREATH THAT I HAVE DRAWN
TAKES ME FURTHER FROM THE DAWN
IN THE FACE OF MIDNIGHT
I WILL STAND SO STRONG
AND EVERY DAY THAT COMES
I'LL JUST KEEP MOVING ON

IN THE KITCHEN OF MY MEMORIES
TEMPTATION BAKES
FLAVORED WITH MY INDECISIONS
AND PAST MISTAKES
BUT I CAN'T CHANGE THE ROAD I'VE TRAVELED
FOR IT'S BEEN PAVED
I'D GIVE MY SOUL TO BUY MORE TIME
BUT THERE'S NO TRADE

(CHORUS)

HOURS FALL LIKE GRAINS OF SAND
BRINGING DARKNESS CLOSER TO MY AGING HANDS
AND WHEN THE AUTUMN FINDS MY WAY
I HOPE I HAVEN'T CAUSE FOR REGRET
REMEMBERING MY CHILDHOOD DAYS

AFTER TIME HAS HAD HER WAY WITH US
WE'LL ALL BE CHANGED
AFTER TIME HAS DONE HER DAMAGE
WE'LL NEVER BE THE SAME

(CHORUS)
