The Spill Canvas - 10,000 Midnights lyrics

10,000 midnights ago
Uptown at the Harlem Apollo
You sang a long, long blues
I loved the way you worked your voodoo

10,000 midnights ago
I wound up my watch 'til the spring broke
My, my time is so unkind
She got punch-drunk in the moon-shine

Old New York, tell me the truth
You know him better than I do
I know I'm not the one for you
I'm just another hand-me-down

10,000 midnights ago
I heard your voice, not your echo
Grand Central valentine
Tear my heart out on the main line

10,000 midnights ago
I lived just to die in your shadow
Black satin melody
That's what I heard when you left me

Old New York, tell me the truth
You know him better than I do
I know I'm not the one for you
I'm just another hand-me-down

10,000 midnights ago
I held myself back in the front row
You affect my memory
All consuming without mercy

10,000 midnights ago
Worn like a black and white photo
I stood behind the lens
Took your portrait, now I'm forgotten
