Lyrics:

THE EDGE OF MIDNIGHT Pat Luce Chapman

At the edge of midnight
Mr. Misery comes along
whispers you're with that young woman
kissing and carrying on
tells me your lips move over her
where they don't belong
at the edge of midnight

I feel her wrap around you,
hear you sigh and moan
her hair silky on the pillow
smelling of Cologne
I see your damned eyes smiling
you're forgetting where's your home
at the edge of midnight

At the edge of midnight
Mr. Misery comes on strong
slips between the shadows
brings that jealousy along
That old shape-shifter finds me
no matter where I hide
at the edge of midnight

SCAT

That Mr. Misery holds me
hurts me with his kiss
don't need all that misery
don't need no more nights like this
So I'll be moving on now
and baby, it's goodbye
at the edge of midnight.

At the edge of midnight
Mr. Misery comes on strong
slips between the shadows
brings that jealousy along
And that old shape-shifter will find you
No matter where you hide
at the edge of midnight
NOTE: The demo has one additional verse and scat. The song should stop here, with scat as the music fades.
