Half past twelve
Watchin’ the late show
In my flat all alone
How I hate to spend
The evening on my own

Autumn winds
Blowin’ outside the window
As I look around the room
And it makes me so
Depressed to see the gloom

There’s not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won’t somebody help me
Chase the shadows away
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day

Movie stars
On end of the rainbow
With a fortune to win
It’s so different from
The world I’m living in

Tired of TV
I open the window
And I gaze into the night
But there’s nothing there to see
No one in sight

There’s not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won’t somebody help me
Chase the shadows away
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight

There’s not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won’t somebody help me
Chase the shadows away
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Won’t somebody help me
Chase the shadows away
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
A man after midnight
Take me through the darkness
To the break of the day

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
