"Middle of the Night" as written by and Dan Koch....



Tonight I'm staring at the moonlight
Tonight I'm wondering how this could've felt so right
And I could say it was a good time
But I can hardly say a thing
He's got you right where he wants you
Right where he wants you

He's going outside in the middle of the night with you
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
No I'm fine, I can go another time with you
But tell me why would I want to

And will you still be feeling alright
In the morning with the sun creeping through the blinds?
And will you say it was a good time?
And you will you tell him anything?
He's got you right where he wants you
Right where he wants you

He's going outside in the middle of the night with you
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
No I'm fine, I can go another time with you
But tell me why would I want to
He's going outside in the middle of the night with you
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
No I'm fine, I can go another time with you
But tell me why would I want to

And I've been away for far too long it seems
And this new group of friends is making me, ready again to leave
I'm ready again to leave

He's going outside in the middle of the night with you
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
No I'm fine, I can go another time with you
But tell me why would I want to
He's going outside in the middle of the night with you
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
No I'm fine, I can go another time with you
But tell me why would I want to
But tell me why would I want to

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song.
    it really makes you think about your relationship.
    or past relationships.

    how you give in so easily.

    General Commentokay so to me it sounds like this guy and girl used to have a relationship and broke up but they keep hooking up.

    but that's just what came to my mind..

    General Commentrockstaryeah hit the nail on the head. They used to have a relationship, but then they broke up. The girl hooked up with another guy, but every so often she sleeps with the original guy. The original guy likes the sex but I think he regrets it afterwards and wonders why he keeps wanting to do it.

    General CommentYeh so... To me, the chorus makes it sound like a guy that was supposed to be getting with a girl (not going out or anything official) but then at a party or something she goes off with some other guy and hes sayin ah ok... well i could go another time with you but now you'v gone off with this other guy why would i want to?! lol and with the way he says "no im fine" as if hes talking to the girl saying "no its alright do what ay want, but dont expect me to be waiting after".

    Yeh i think that form teh chorus

    Tonight I'm staring at the moonlight (reflective of a good night ahead?!)
    Tonight I'm wondering how this could've felt so right (now the chorus is happening hes wondering how/why he was so opptomisitic of teh night ahead)
    And I could say it was a good time ("could")
    But I can hardly say a thing (Cant say it was a good time now)

    General Commentactually i think him staring at the moonlight is him being lonely - it's probably a best friend who wnats to date his friend, and she's totally insensitive and forgets about him each time and each time goes out with this guy who mistreats her and she runs to her best friend but he can't bring himself to care anymore b/c she's left him so many times

    General CommentSeems to me that the guy used to be in a relationship with this girl and for whatever reason he had to go away ("And I've been away for far too long it seems") but when he comes back to possibly pick things up where they left off he discovers that she's been sleeping around and picked up a crew of friends who aren't the best... ("And this new group of friends is making me, ready again to leave"). Then he basically starts asking her loaded questions about how she really feels about how she is behaving ("And will you still be feeling alright In the morning with the sun creeping through the blinds? And will you say it was a good time? And you will you tell him anything?"), followed by a warning that the guy just wants sex from her and that she is just screwing herself.

    My InterpretationI agree with Spratty59 on this. He was hoping to get something started, I feel. Maybe not just hook-up but maybe a relationship as he talks of how "It felt so right", which could be referring to how it felt like some was there with her. But, she runs off with someone else. So, by running off with the other guy, he questions what it is he saw in her in the first place. Even if he gets another chance, does he really want to take it? (No I'm fine, I can go another time with you, But tell me why would I want to).

    I feel the verse:
    "(And will you still be feeling alright
    In the morning with the sun creeping through the blinds?
    And will you say it was a good time?
    And you will you tell him anything?
    He's got you right where he wants you
    Right where he wants you")

    Is the singer wondering if the morning after this girl and this guy hook up she will tell him she had a good time and if she will fell ashamed. It also conveys the other guy is manipulative and really has an ulterior motive for his actions.
