Woke up on a good day
And the world was wonderful 
A midnight summer dream had me in its spell 

I dreamt about an old man
Sat and watched the rain all night 
He couldn't sleep a wink as all the drops fell

He told me of the beauty  Hidden in our foreheads 
He told me of the ugliness 
We show instead 

And when we put a foot wrong do we learn 
From all the pain
A midnight summer dream as he watched the rain

Then at midnight he poured another drink 
And bent my ear
 After midnight we sat up half the night 
Or maybe more
And he began to tell me what it was all for

I woke up in an armchair 
He had gone I don't know where 
Left me there to sit and look at the rain

Don't remember much at all
But his words were echoing 
A midnight summer dream and then wake again 

 Maybe I'll never find him
 Maybe he's gone forever  Maybe I'll have to sit here
 Watching the weather 

One thing's pretty certain helped me
Make it in the night  Showed me somewhere else between wrong and right 

And at midnight if you can't sleep 
Then I can bend your ear
 After midnight we'll sit up half the night 
Or maybe more
And I'll begin to tell you what it is all for

Wake up on a good day
And the world feels wonderful  Midnight summer dream has me in its spell.
