Outside of the window
I was sticking with you
We were only kids then
We'd get soaked right through
We used to tell them
I was staying at yours
Sheltered in our own worlds
We'd watch the rain right through

We grew up at midnight
We were only kids then
We grew up at midnight
We were only kids then

Loving woman, loving man
Here for you doing the best we can
Hard to figure, hard to bare
Hard to think knowing how much you care
It's the strangest thing through thick and thin
All this time kept the promise you made

If you're telling I'll be told
I'll come running and be there
As soon as I can

Outside of the window
I was sticking with you
We were only kids then
We'd get soaked right through
We used to tell them
I was staying at yours
Sheltered in our own worlds
We'd watch the rain right through

We grew up at midnight
We were only kids then
We grew up at midnight
We were only kids then
But that night we knew

    General Commentseems to me this song is about "first love". maybe the kind of love that evolved from a childhood friendship into teens' romance... anyway, although i never really ever had that kind of experience, this song makes me feel "nostalgic" in a very beautiful way

    General CommentI dont know if it is a first love thing, but for sure it is their "first night". Just look at the last line:
    "But that night we knew" (they were kids, but they knew that they were doing some nice love).

    I understand "grew up at midnight", like after they did the thing they were now grown-ups.

    Indeed a very beautiful song. Also feel nostagilc about it.
