Electric Light Orchestra - Midnight Blue Lyrics

I see the lonely road that leads so far away,
I see the distant lights that left behind the day
But what I see is so much more than I can say
And I see you midnight blue.

I see you cryin' now you've found a lot of pain,
And what you're searchin' for can never be the same,
But what's the difference cos' they say what's in a name.
And I see you midnight blue.

I will love you tonight,and I will stay
By your side,lovin' you,I'm feelin' midnight blue.

I see you standing there far out along the way,
I want to touch you but the night becomes the day,
I count the words that I am never gonna say
And I see you midnight blue.

[Repeat Chorus]

Can't you feel the love that I'm offering you,
Can't you see how it's meant to be,
Can't you hear the words that I'm saying to you,
Can't you believe like I believe,
It's only one and one it's true
Still I see you midnight blue.

I see beautiful days and I feel beautiful ways
Of loving you,everything's midnight blue.

[Repeat Chorus]

    The first time I heard ELO they were the opening band for Deep Purple. I thought they were fantastic, and will become very popular. I'm so glad that I was right. I'm so glad they are still preforming and writing wonderful music!!

  8. Wendel Madriaga

    I love that song,🥰

  9. Sangwook Son

    I’m 47. When I feel the heavyweight of my life, this “midnight blue” sends me back to the past when i needed to put a cassette tape into the player to listen my favorite songs and pushed “rewind” button several times to listen that song again.

  10. roberto rodriguez

    Que buen grupo, me recuerdo los hermosos 70's, grandes canciones, grandes temas, a veces injustamente olvidados como este, con bastante poca difusión. ELO muy buenos interpretes.

  11. Marce Blues

    genial temazo temon

    Que lindo !!!...❤️

  29. Juan Carlos López

    hay melodias, hay canciones que son como las estrellas del cielo, como los arboles del bosque. me llenan el corazon de amor y ganas de levantarme para que juntos nos movamos y salvemos las maravillas que nos rodean y que nunca pidieron que les hagamos tanto mal hay refranes asi que me ponen melancolico y me dan ganas de ser positivo El dia que me valla quiero que queden los pajaros, las flores el mar la nieve los elefantes y los leones los ninos los arco iris los musicos los pezes hombres y mujeres palmeras ..........y mucho amor

    Paul McCartney once said that if The Beatles continued they would sound like ELO.

    Linda Anderson

    Nooo I doubt that. Paul died back in the 60's I believe. I've always said Hey! Will the real Paul Please stand up?!

  41. HGST

    Can't you feel the love that I'm offering you?
    Can't you see how it's meant to be?
    Can't you hear the words that I'm saying to you?
    Can't you believe like I believe?
    It's only one and one, it's true
    Still I see you in midnight blue
