🎵 The Midnight – Good in Red

A fantastic new song from The Midnight’s new album released on March 19th. The style is obviously purely 80s.

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Called a curse in the cradle
Loving mother, unstable
Daddy gone, under the table
But you found a song in your heart
So you learned how to fight, how to starve, how to survive
When the others blocked your light you learned to see beyond the stars

[Pre-Chorus]
The curse of small desires
Easily acquired
It’s time to set your gasoline heart on fire

[Chorus]
Kill your demons, kill em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don’t you look good in red?
Slay your devils, kill em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive, hold that bloody head up high

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t you look good in red?
Don’t you look good in red?

[Verse 2]
Is there more beyond those plains?
You cut your hair, changed your name
Left a note as you escaped – to thine own self be true
If there was no gold in those hills, no platinum in those pretty pills
Just werewolves tossing dollar bills and the wine dark sea of Malibu

[Pre-Chorus]
The curse of small desires
Easily acquired
It’s time to set your gasoline heart on fire

[Chorus]
Kill your demons, kill em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don’t you look good in red?
Slay your devils, kill em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive, hold that bloody head up high

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t you look good in red?
Don’t you look good in red?

[Bridge]
No one’s coming to save you
No one’s coming to save you
Swing that sword that you made
With the pain that they gave you
Like the pain is gonna save you

The pain is gonna save you

[Chorus]
Kill your demons, kill em dead
In your mirror, in your bed
In your heart, in your head
Don’t you look good in red?
Slay your devils, kill em all
Take your throne, paint the walls
And if you make it out alive, hold that bloody head up high

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t you look good in red?
Don’t you look good in red?

Monday walk: Desert Botanical Gardens…visitors — This, that and the other thing

For my birthday, we visited the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, a marvelous slice of desert life, past and present. The last time I visited was in 2014 when Dale Chihuly set up a marvelous installation. My sister-in-law and I arrived in the late afternoon, walked all the paths, then revisit after dark when everything was illuminated. […]
