Asia - Midnight Lyrics



They put away the DDT now
But gave metal to the sea
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

The only eagle, only tree
Within a desert that was green
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

Midnight
Draws ever near
Daylight
Is fading so fast
It's so close to midnight
Midnight

The melting ice will fuel the sea
By burning gold from ancient tree
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

This is progress, this is sin
Injecting poison in her skin
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

Midnight
Draws ever near
Daylight
Is fading so fast
It's so close to midnight
Midnight

Asia Midnight Comments
  1. Dany Ramírez

    good that lyrics like chicle.

  2. Benoit Vanhees

    My favorite song of this lesser known or appreciated Asia album. I have never had any preference for one of the Johns behind the mike, both Wetton and Payne contributed substantially to the total output of this band, that never made a bad studio album. Even the so-called left overs on Archives 1 and 2 are damned good !

    Cedrick Newsom

    Benoit Vanhees While I will agree with you that they never made a bad album. I don't care to much for arena it just sounds to much like lobby music and not prog rock. Just my opinion

    Carlos Ferrigno

    Benoit Vanhees my man, you're totally right. My favorite is Payne but both are Asia trademark, this beautiful career that perhaps become in the end. AOR pure Masterness, tremendously mixed with many genres, and this legacy will last forever in time

    Karen W
