Song Description

A song about not conforming to what everyone expects you to be, but feeling out of place and wanting help to get through it

Story Behind the Song

Basically about after many nights out in my home town and seeing all the in-crowd around town and being glad to not be part of it, but at the same time being a bit lonely cos' we all need to feel wanted.

Lyrics

Midnight in the city, that has no soul
Its midnight in the city that has no soul

They stand around in their uniform
Nameless faceless, uniform
I don?t ever want to conform
I?m me.

Midnight in the city, that knows not right and knows not wrong
Its midnight in the city that has no song

And I wish that you were with me
Helping me through
In this darkened city
Where nothing is new

And I don?t subscribe to the faceless crowd
Nameless faceless, rent-a-crowd
I just want to sing out proud
I?m me

They stand around in their uniform
Nameless faceless, uniform
I don?t ever want to conform
I?m me, just me.

And I wish that you were with me
Helping me through
In this darkened city
Where nothing is new
