EAST OF MIDNIGHT (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1986 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. (bridge) It's a long, long hike, we'll be leavin' early traveling light. (bridge) 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. (bridge) It's a tough and a dirty long hike, you can come if you like. (bridge) If we could just lie down love, toss some thoughts around. (fade) (Transcribed by David Story - March 2013)
