Ocean Colour Scene

40 Past Midnight – Ocean Colour Scene

Well I’m waiting standing on the corner
And it’s coming 40 past the hour
In the midnight lonely freezing hour
With my insides churning in the gutter

And I’m waiting 40 past midnight
Catching rain in the soda light
Won’t you come & call me to your window
Please don’t leave me waiting on the corner

We could have the best time if you lighten up your life
With my pockets holey in the inside
With my bus ride rolling in the gutter
But if you would only light your lamp light
Then I would be here than any other

Well I’m waiting 40 past midnight
Catching cold in the pouring rain
Won’t you come & take me to your door
So I can take myself home again

When I’m waiting standing on the corner
And the soda light begins to flicker
And it’s getting 40 past the hour
And I think I won’t see what I figure
Well I’m waiting freezing on the inside
Staring up at your window pane
If you won’t come see me this evening
I can see myself here again

Half A Dream Away – Ocean Colour Scene

We’re just half a dream away
Sitting on our fences
Building up defences
Making up rules by which you play

We’re just half way down the road
Staking our postions
But stupid supersitions
Only give fools too heavy a load

The magpie screeched and the windows shattered
Her body’s bruised but her soul’s not battered
The fireman tried but the hose was broken
The cupboards bare but the door needs closing

We spend half our time away
From being where we want to
And seeing who it’s fun to
Not blaming ourselves for our mistakes

We spend half a dream away
Looking out of windows
Waiting for a signal
Waiting for night to close the day

The tree was bare but the birds were singing
The milk turned sour and my thirst needs quenching
The meat was dead and I need me feeding
The room was cold but the night was freezing

The rainbow frowned when the sun was laughing
A baby’s snatched on a beatiful morning
A dog runs wild and the brakes are screaming
A church on fire is struck by lightining
The dead man’s hands had beautiful fingers
The princess frowned at her lovers mistress
She went insane and poisoned the children
A teacher’s drowned and a child is laughing
