Song Lyric of the Day

Contemporary music—rock, pop, blues, rap, country, whatever—proves again and again that nothing can happen to a person that hasn’t already happened to someone else. This song became famous 43 years ago, but it’s been relevant to my life for the last 31 years.

The sound of your footsteps
Telling me that you’re near
Your soft gentle motion, babe
Brings out a need in me that no one can hear, except

In my midnight confession
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confession
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you

But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
There’s another before me, you’ll never be mine
I’m wasting my time

Staggering through the daytime
Your image on my mind
Passing so close beside you, babe
Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, but

In my midnight confession
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confession
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you

There’s a little gold ring you wear on your hand that makes me understand
There’s another before me, you’ll never be mine
I’m wasting my time

In my midnight confession
When I’m telling the world that I love you
In my midnight confession
When I say all the things that I want to…
