Randy Meisner- Midnight Rain Lyrics

Midnight Rain
written: R. Meisner

Far off in the distance I hear a train
Rolling like thunder on this hot summer night
It's taking me back to when she came
And stole my heart in the midnight rain

The night was contagiously calming and warm
We met as strangers coming out of the storm
We looked into each others' eyes and we fell in love
Hoping that time would stand still

Midnight rain, midnight rain
Will I ever see this girl again?
Midnight rain, midnight rain
She left me standing all alone in the midnight rain

She came down and stayed for the summer
She was my first real love
We'd hold hands and watch the sun go down
Thanking the sky above

We knew it couldn't last forever
We knew we were running out of time
The nights were long and so tender
The days we left behind

Midnight rain, midnight rain
We were wild and still untamed
Midnight rain, midnight rain
I could still see her standing in the midnight rain

The hardest thing I ever had to do
Was tell this girl goodbye
I stood out by the railroad track
And I buried her that night
She's buried me by now

I turn out the light, and lying in my bed
Banging against the window all these things in my head
I can't sleep, I'm just thinking about her
And I'm restless, and I'm so empty

Storm flashes light up through my window
Shadows dance across the wall
I can't escape, she possesses my dream
I can still see her saying goodbye to me

Midnight rain, midnight rain
Will I ever see this girl again?
Midnight rain, midnight rain
I can still see her standing
I can still see her standing
I can still see her standing in the midnight rain

She was my first real lover
She stole my heart in the midnight rain
Midnight rain
