"Walkin' After Midnight" as written by Alan W. Block and Don Hecht....
I go out walking after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just like we used to do
I'm always walking after midnight
Searching for you

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way
Of saying I love you
I'm always walking after midnight
Searching for you

I stop to see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow
Maybe he's crying for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walking after midnight
Out in the starlight
Just hoping you may be
Somewhere a-walking after midnight
Searching for me

I stop to see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow
Maybe he's crying for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walking after midnight
Out in the starlight
Just hoping you may be
Somewhere a-walking after midnight
Searching for me

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite of hers. I like it more than Crazy. Both are damn good. She has a beautiful voice.

    My Interpretation"Walking after midnight" must mean wandering in metaphorical darkness, I guess. One wanders in this darkness hoping a past love is also wandering, looking to reconnect.

    My InterpretationThis is country Goth at it's best. It's not stated or established in the song, but the lover she searches for, late at night, is dead, and she misses him so much that she believes that if she walks alone in the middle of the night that there is a chance that she will see his ghost.
    It is romantic and macabre.
    I love it!
