"Midnight Blue" as written by and Jeff / Lynne....
Whatever it is, it'll keep till the morning
Haven't we both got better things to do?
Midnight blue
Even the simple things become rough
Haven't we had enough?

And I think we can make it
One more time
If we try
One more time for all the old times

For all of the times you told me you need me
Needing me now is something I could use
Midnight blue
Wouldn't you give your hand to a friend?
Maybe it's not the end

And I think we can make it
One more time
If we try
One more time for all the old times
Midnight blue

I think we can make it
I think we can make it
Oh, wouldn't you give your heart to a friend?
Think of me as your friend

And I think we can make it
One more time
If we try
One more time for all of the old, old times

One more time
I think we can make it
If we try
I think we can make it
If we try
Looks like we're gonna make it
Looks like we're gonna make it
If we try
I think we can make it

    General CommentWho hasn't felt this way going thru a divorce? One feels like trying when the other doesn't, and visa-versa 2 weeks later.

    General CommentTo me this song doesn't necessarily imply divorce but rather a formerly good relationship which has ended but perhaps not permanently. I visualize her alone, late at night, feeling some regret (i.e. midnight blues) yet hopeful for some form of mutual reconciliation if not full-blown restoration - if only a different, better and probably slower approach could be taken compared to the way it occurred before.

    There is also a hint of selfish motivation in her words which would trouble me if they were said to me under such circumstances, unless I knew both parties were consciously seeking to establish some "interdependence" for the sake of the relationship as opposed to some temporary affection just to get through a needy night.
