Almost Midnight

Recommended Posts

This is my ninth and most recent song inspired by watching the news, a somewhat dark ballad with a spiritual aspect, pop/rock tune.

Almost Midnight

(Written September 26, 2004

by Mike R. Smale

A child runs through

the dark and vacant streets.

He turns into an ally,

then begins to weep.

Running from a tortured past,

and into a world unknown.

Far away from the danger,

but still, there's more to go.

Almost midnight

A man comes home many hours late,

reeking of smoke and beer.

He starts to holler at his wife,

with words she will not to hear.

Almost midnight

Running from a tortured past,

and into a world unknown.

Far away from the danger,

but still, there's more to go.

Never quite at ease,

troubled souls still wander.

Heading for their paradise,

wondering how much further.

Someday soon the sun will rise again.

I can see that one to go along the lines of a Good Charlotte style of song

I thought it was a well written poem though..... not crappy at all, that comment was totally uncalled for.

whats the big problem with Good Charlotte? I mean honestly you dont see me running your guys bands down, I am positive, I dont care what you people listen to, I think it looks like a Good Charlotte style, I never said it was to be done by Good Charlotte, so why dont you people step off!

Really good work Mike, and as for the bands issued, I listen to Good Charlotte, and it would fit in the music, whether or not it blows. Music is music, in different forms, yet hear for the same reason.
