Pushing Back Midnight
Lyrics
Last night I heard you singing
On my old radio
Singing about the sorrow
That was feeding on your soul
What was the cost of dragging
That heavy ball and chain
Was it a fair price for teaching
The whole world about hard rain.

Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight
Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight!

Saw your starry painting
On a New York museum wall
How'd you catch the stars dancing
Looking thru a window so small.
And what was the cost of choosing
Your own time to die
Was it far too much for showing us
The stars are so alive.

Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight
Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight!
Little book Iím reading, here's how it's gospel goes
Heroes sometimes walk around in anti-hero clothes!

So what's the use in trying
The search somehow is cursed
You can't catch a moonbeam
If your shadow gets there first.
And what is the cost of staying
A lifetime in the light
If you're seeing 20/20
In the middle of the night.

Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight
Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight!
Was it a chance to walk alone beyond the light of day
Or were you sent to shine at night and blow the dark away!
Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight Pushing back,
Pushing back, pushing back, pushing back midnight!
