"Ease Of The Midnight Visit" as written by and Timothy ...
Show me a way to stop lovin you
And I'll stop coming 'round
Your flatmate in the front room,
He thinks he may have found -
The last of the teenage lovers
Surprised by what I feel
The last of the teenage lovers
I'm learning how to deal
With the ease of the midnight visit
The ease of the midnight visit
Takes a leap of faith
That you might be alone
I was dreamin of you this morning
Dreaming all last night
Your greedy new manoeuvres,
They moke me up in fright
I watched the sunlight climbing up my bedroom door
Who had taught my sweetheart to ask for so much more
Ahh with the ease of the midnight visit
The ease of the midnight visit
Takes a leap of faith
That you might be alone
Born again to die again
My soul is in this body
Born again to die again
My soul is in this body
Better give it a bit of peace
I was trying to save your flatmate
From getting out of bed so late
Like a big old clumsy cat
Perched on top of your side gate
The last of the teenage lovers thinks
"What a way to go"
I'd call the ambulance myself
If could reach the phone
The last of the teenage lovers
"What a way to go"
Its not enough to be in love wth you
I want to be loved too
Yeah that's the ease of the midnight visit
Takes a leap of faith that you might be alone
Yeah that's the ease of the midnight visit
Takes a leap of faith that you might be alone.
When's a fool like me gonna drive straight home?

    General CommentAhh this song is brilliant. What an album closer.

    This is about a narration of a man in love with a girl who lives in a flat with another man, and (Tim) keeps coming around to see her: "Show me a way to stop loving you and I'll stop coming 'round".

    I LOVE the closing line: "When's a fool like me gonna drive straight home?"

    Cheeky,.

    Song Meaninghi there LukeB, I think you're halfway there, mate. It's about a guy who's figured out his girl is cheating on him, but he's still in love with her... so he's gonna visit her at midnight and see if he can catch her out (hence the title of the song).

    the first verse, they're... well, gettin' it on ;) and he's musing how the housemate in the front room must be feeling, etc etc. the second verse has him thinking about why she's so... different in the sack (your greedy new manoeuvres, they woke me in a fright) and now his head his is going crazy, so he's going to get some sort of closure, which is the bridge. then the last verse is his attempt at climbing the side gate to get in the back and falling, hurting himself badly enough to need an ambulance. I'm wondering if he was able to peer in her window via the gate and saw something he didn't quite like. the next part is like he thinks he's dying, but his injuries prolly aren't that bad. it's his heart that's hurting more than anything else (it's not enough to be in love with you, I want to be loved too).

    this song always makes me laugh, but it's so sad at the same time. and Tim's damned good at that. funny lyrics to take the severity off a song. it's a wonderful skill and one of the many reasons I've been a fan for all these years. :)
