The Stranglers - Midnight Summer Dream

[Verse 1]
Woke up on a good day
And the world was wonderful
A midnight summer dream
Had me in its spell

I dreamt about an old man
Sat and watched the rain all night
He couldn't sleep a wink as all the drops fell

He told me of the beauty
Hidden in our foreheads
And he told me of the ugliness
We show instead

And when we put a foot wrong
Do we learn from all the pain?
A midnight summer dream
As he watched the rain

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Then at midnight he poured another drink and bent my ear
And after midnight, we sat up half the night, or maybe more
And he began to tell me what it was all for

I woke up in an armchair
He had gone I don't know where
He left me there to sit and look at the rain
