Lightfoot, Gordon - East Of Midnight Lyrics




Put me somewhere east of midnight
West of the turnpike
Anywhere I wander is where I'll take my rest
As I lie down, toss some thoughts around
Dreams I'm told will come true if you
Believe in those who love you right now
Sea of dreams I long for you
Forget about the others
This is my hike, you can come if you like
To feel good, I would help you if I could
But I am out here searching
For the things that might have been
I need no more reminders
Not one love letter have I seen
And that's a pretty good start
The ocean is where lovers meet again
Sea of dreams by all means
Float me out of danger until then
Forever amen

It's a long long hike
We'll be leavin' early travelin' light
That's alright Heaven will be ours tonight

The road is paved with moonbeams
There are faces that I knew
They all came back to haunt me
But that ain't fair to the folks like me and you
It takes a bit of my heart
Tonight I shall be watching from the shore
Sea of dreams from now on
Forget about all the others
Back where the line forms
Destination sea of storms
By all means ever onward sea of dreams

Put me somewhere east of midnight
Along about daylight
Anywhere I wander is where I'll take my rest
If we could just lie down
Toss some thoughts around
It's a tough and a dirty long hike
You can come if you like
If we could just lie down
Toss some thoughts around

    East of Midnight
    ~ Gordon Lightfoot

    Put me somewhere east of midnight
    West of the turnpike
    Anywhere I wander
    Is where I'll take my rest

    As I lie down, toss some thoughts around
    Dreams I'm told will come true if you
    Believe in those who love you right now

    Sea of dreams I long for you
    Forget about the others
    This is my hike, you can come if you like
    To feel good, I would help you if I could

    But I am out here searching
    For the things that might have been
    I need no more reminders
    Not one love letter have I seen

    And that's a pretty good start
    The ocean is where lovers meet again
    Sea of dreams by all means
    Float me out of danger until then
    Forever amen

    It's a long, long hike
    We'll be leavin' early travelin' light
    That's alright heaven will be ours tonight

    The road is paved with moonbeams
    There are faces that I knew
    They all came back to haunt me
    But that ain't fair to the folks like me and you

    It takes a bit of my heart
    Tonight I shall be watching from the shore
    Sea of dreams from now on

    Forget about all the others
    Back where the line forms
    Destination sea of storms
    By all means ever onward sea of dreams

    Put me somewhere east of midnight
    Along about daylight
    Anywhere I wander
    Is where I'll take my rest

    If we could just lie down, love
    Toss some thoughts around
    It's a tough and a dirty long hike
    You can come if you like

    If we could just lie down
    Toss some thoughts around
