After Midnight Lyrics - Blink-182

Review The Song (2)



I can't get my feet up off the edge
I kind of like the little rush you get
When you're standing close to death
Like when you're driving me crazy

Hold on as we crash into the earth
A bit of pain will help you suffer when you're hurt, for real
'Cause you are driving me crazy

Bite your lips, the word's a robbery
Do you grin inside? You're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kind of think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away
Did you know? I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell

We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

I can't keep your voice out of my head
All I hear are many echoes of
The darkest words you said
And it's driving me crazy

I can't find the best in all of this
But I'm always looking out for you
'Cause you're the one I miss
And it's driving me crazy

Bite your lips, the word's a robbery
Do you grin inside? You're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kind of think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away
Did you know? I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

"After Midnight" is a song written and produced by the American pop punk band Blink-182, is the second single from their sixth album Neighborhoods. The song debuted on English radio station BBC Radio 1 at the Zane Lowe's program on September 6, 2011. On October 22 the song entered to the Alternative Songs chart at number 39.

"After Midnight" was one of four new songs birthed from a last-minute writing session after the band canceled their European tour in early 2011. The band said that "After Midnight" is like most of the old songs of the band, referring to the speed with which it was created, they said that creating this song was easier than the others.[3] Tom DeLonge described the song as "our new I Miss You". The song was originally titled "Travis Beat", for being Travis Barker's favorite song, it was created based on a beat that Travis composed a day working in the studio. Mark Hoppus commented, "One day we got in studio, we heard the rhythm, and we got attracted to it. It was one of those moments in the album where, suddenly, we all had ideas and all rushed out. I think that in two or three hours, we had the basis of the song written."

In the same way that the lyrics to 2003's "I Miss You" were composed (Hoppus that wrote the chorus, DeLonge the verses), lyrics were written separately. According to the band, they didn't necessarily know what the other was writing about, but it ended up fitting together well. Tom DeLonge commented on an interview with MTV: "What's cool about this song and 'I Miss You,' when Mark and I both write lyrics in different places, they come together and they're both about the same thing. We end up writing super romantic songs. And I think it worked out really good on this one".

"After Midnight" was played for the first time on the Honda Civic Tour along with "Ghost On The Dance Floor" before the release of the album. The first time the song was played live on TV was on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show on October 3, 2011. And on December 8 the band presented on the Conan O'Brien show where they played the song.

The song got positive feedback from music critics. Some of them cataloging it as one of their best songs. Tom Goodwyn from the British magazine NME said that this song is one of the best from this album, A lovely subtle love song and the lightest moment on Neighborhoods. "We'll stagger home after midnight, sleep arm in arm in the stairwell" croons Mark Hoppus over a gentle riff. Whoever fancies themselves as the new John Hughes should be locking this down for the big kissing scene at the end of their new flick now. Consequence of Sound's web critic Chris Coplan said the song is "decidedly epic with an intimate touch, an effort that highlights each member’s strengths, Tom DeLonge’s romantic verses, Mark Hoppus’ grand chorus, and Travis Barker’s bangin’ drum skills, to make for one fairly anthemic effort". SPIN's critic Marc Hogan said: "It's a bittersweet midtempo rocker, and the most contemplative of the new songs Blink has unveiled so far. 'These nights go on and on' goes the chorus, perfect for bored teenagers shouting outside car windows". Thomas Nassiff from AbsolutePunk said: "After Midnight" is instantly a classic Blink-182 song. Scott Heisel from the US magazine Alternative Press wrote: "Is one of the finest moments of Blink's career, a song so simple, catchy and geniune that it's amazing it took them nearly two decades to write it".

On October 15 before "After Midnight" was a single, it debuted at number 52 on Bilboard's Hot Digital Songs and on Hot 100 at number 88. On October 22 the song debuted at number 39 on Billboard's Alternative Songs. From Wikipedia

love it. | Reviewer: Ellie brown | 1/15/13

I am absolutely in love with this song. in a way it's very simple yet so unique and it has that sound where it forces you to play it on repeat after repeat, you can tell its a pop punk song but it has a soft and romantic feeling. truly incredible.

new favorite blink-182 song? | Reviewer: Jen DeLonge | 9/12/11

Obsessed. I am in love. Oh how I fucking miss the sound of Tom and Mark's voice together on one track. The live version of this song on tour this year was incredible. Blink-182 is incredible, to the haters, get a hobby. This is music, and nothing makes me happier :)
