Midnight in a Perfect World
DJ Shadow Lyrics


Insight, foresight, more sight
The clock on the wall is a quarter past midnight

I don't love you
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love, of love

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

Now, now, now, now, now, now
Ah ooh
12 o'clock
Ah ooh
Rock rock rock rock the midnight rush
Ah ooh
Ah ooh

Now, now, now, now, now, now

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

I don't love you
The midnight rush
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love , of love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Now now now now now approach now approaching now approach now approaching
Now now now now now now now now approaching midni-
Now now now now now now approaching mid
Now now now now approaching midni-
Now now approaching now now now now approaching midnight

The lyric at 2:09 is also from Outta State by Akinyele, the lyric "the midnight bus" is taken from there, and the "the midnight" parts at 1:16 and mostly throughout certain parts of the song are sampled

This was played at my best friends funeral. Thank you DJ Shadow🙏

Oh, Coast…that’s both beautiful and so sad. I’ve seen DJ Shadow 3 or 4 times. He is truly as talented as he seems…. And he is from California-like me! He went to UC Davis, I think. Middle of nowhere.

The song that played at your best friend’s funeral is a good one!

I feel you @coastsmokin ~ This was the first song that came to my mind and that I played when my dad passed away 7/10/2008 - RIP
