"A song about leaving something " by Admiral Bob

Verse 1:
At the pawn shop, the first time
Plugged a Strat into a Twin
I felt the crackle in the line
Like an IV fusing in

Refrain:
Played nearly everywhere
From the NAC to Montreal
I’ve heard each singer sing
The siren muse’s call

Chorus:
In the midnight song
Her crackled voice lets go
To wash away the passerbys
Walking by up on Rideau
She’ll play the midnight song
Again.

Verse 2:
The smoke sticks to my suit
Like the clingy drunken longing
That fills the air each night
Til the tired eyes cheer the dawn in

Refrain:
Finished the last set
In near every bar the same
The crackle of the amplifier
Sets my heart aflame

Chorus:
In the midnight song
Her crackled voice lets go
To wash away the passerbys
Walking by up on Rideau
She’ll play the midnight song
Again.

Bridge:
In the band’s embrace
My muse she finds her space
Ghosts of blue for a guide
Where my shadows all abide

Refrain:
Finished the last night
Where he knocked my guitar down
And in the dimming sight
The prince let’s go his crown

Chorus:
In the midnight song
Her crackled voice lets go
To wash away the passerbys
Walking by up on Rideau
She’ll play the midnight song
Again.
