Midnight Blue

From time-to-time, I get all nostalgic and make music mixes and sometimes I find myself stuck in the 80s, a time when it was simple and still magical (for me at least, I don't need to know the cynical time it was for anyone else).

So I was making my friend Glenda an "Ultimate 80s Mix" the other day, and I found myself including the song "Midnight Blue" by Lou Gramm. I listened in to the words, and they were pretty cool.

Ain't got no regrets
And I ain't losin' track
Of which way I'm going
Ain't gonna double back
Don't want no misplay
Put on no display
An angel? No!
But I know my way
I used follow
Yeah, that's true.
But my following days are over,
Now I just gotta follow through
I remember what my father said
He said "Son Girl, life is simple"
It's either cherry red or...

Midnight Blue...
Midnight Blue...
You were the restless one
And you did not care
That I was the troubled boy Girl...
Lookin' for a double dare
I won't apologize for
The things I've done and said
I'm gonna paint it cherry red.

I don't want to talk about it
What you do to me
I can't live without it
And you might think that
It's much too soon
For us to go this far
Into the...
Midnight Blue...

Things could be different
But that'd be a shame, 'cause
I'm the one who could feel the sun
Right in the pouring rain
I won't say where
And I don't know when
But soon there's gonna come a day
I'll be back again
Yeah, I'll be back for you
You see, I'm saving up my love...
Midnight Blue.

Sums it all up for me today... I'm posting, yeah, posting when I want to and feel like it, and I hope to make it more frequent, but I'm a moody HEFFAH, so I'll be back when I have something on my mind and the energy to type it out.

Later Foo...

I didn't follow much music in the 80's, or 90's, or 70's. I'm a shit kicker, gimmie that old time country music. :-)

I'm pretty eclectic... Big music lover here, thanks to Mom she raised us with a radio practically in every room of the house. Some of my favorite childhood memories are listening to her old 45s.
