"Round Midnight" as written by and Cootie/hanighen Williams....
It begins to tell 'round midnight
'Round midnight
I do pretty well 'til after sundown
Suppertime I'm feeling sad
But it really gets bad 'round midnight

Memories always start 'round midnight
'Round midnight
Haven't got the heart to stand those memories
When my heart is still with you
And old midnight knows it too

When some quarrel we had needs mending
Does it mean that our love is ending
Darling I need you
Lately I find
You're out of my arms
And I'm out of my mind

Let our love take wing some midnight
'Round midnight
Let the angels sing
For your returning
Let our love be safe and sound
When old midnight comes around

Let our love take wing some midnight
'Round midnight
Let the angels sing
For your returning
Let our love be safe and sound
When old midnight comes around

    General Commentlove this song. it's basically about not being able to sleep at night because there are too many things on your mind. You're fine during the day when you are busy and evern at suppertime. but when you law down and are all alone, you cant help but get depressed
    "Memories always start, round midnight....I haven't got the heart to stand those memories"
    However, the song is mainly about a man (probably Blake) and him being gone, she cant stand all their memories that come back when she misses him. "Let the angels sing for your return" He is back home with her

    General CommentAs previously posted, the song is about how you can make it through the day pretty fine, but then when the time comes to sleep, you just cant manage to fall asleep because there's too much in your head.

    General CommentThis originally was a jazz song in 1944 by thelonious Monk. She sings it very well though.

    My OpinionThe first two stanzas are right the last three are different the third stanza isn’t even in her version.

    General CommentOne Direction even curse though it’s censored to a ‘shh.’ This happy number make me dance around and is hence one of my favorite tracks of the album. The chorus is even somewhat reminiscent of Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me. goo.gl/…
