Hold that chrysalis in your palm
See it split and change
It won't do you any harm
It's just trying to rearrange

It was born to live a day
Now it flies up from your hand
It's beautiful
It's the one they call your ever loving man

Wolves have carried your babies away
Oh, your kids drip from their teeth
The nights are long and the day
Is bitter cold beyond belief

You spread yourself like a penitent
On the mad vibrating sand
And through your teeth
Arrange to meet your midnight man

Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around, baby don't you see?
Everybody wanna be your midnight man

Don't disturb me as I sleep
Treat me gentle when I wake
And don't disturb me as I sleep
Even though your body aches

And even though your body aches
To serve at his command
Between the wars
She still adores her ever loving man

Close your eyes, sleep in him
Dream of your lost sons and daughters
Me, I'll raise up my dorsal fin
And glide up and down the waters

I'll glide up and down the waters
And I'll walk upon the land
And I'll call 'em out
The ones who doubt your midnight man

Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around, darling don't you see?
Everybody wanna be your midnight man

It's early in the morning
And I don't know what to do
It's early in the morning
And I can't believe it's true

It's early in the morning
And it's happening again
Well, I called you once, I called you twice
Ain't I your midnight man?

Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around to my place
Everybody's coming around, they want you, they love you
They need to be your midnight man

Everybody's coming, everybody's coming
Everybody's coming around to be your midnight man
To be your midnight man
