Midnights [3am Edition]

1.Lavender Haze: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

So real, I'm damned if I do give a damn what people say
No deal, the 1950s shit they want from me
I just wanna stay in that lavender haze

2. Maroon: Summer Sons

And I wake with your memory over me
That's a real f****** legacy to leave
The burgundy on my T-shirt when you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks, so scarlet (it was maroon)
The mark you saw on my collarbone, the rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home, so scarlet (it was maroon)

3. Anti Hero: The Picture of Dorian Gray

It's me, hi
I'm the problem, it's me
At teatime
Everybody agrees
I'll stare directly at the sun but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

4. Snow on the Beach Light From Uncommon Stars

I can't speak afraid to jinx itI don't even dare to wish itBut your eyes are flying saucers from another planetNow I'm All For You like JanetCan this be a real thing? Can it?

5. You're On Your Own Kid: Matrix

'Cause there were pages turned with the bridges burnedEverything you lose is a step you takeSo make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste itYou've got no reason to be afraid

You're on your own, kidYeah, you can face this

6. Midnight Rain: The Midnight Library

So I peered through a windowA deep portal, time travelAll the love we unravelAnd the life I gave away

7. Question...?: Normal People

But one thing after another
Lost in situations, circumstances
Miscommunications and I
Have to say
By the way
I just may like some explanations

8. Vigilante Shit: Circe

Ladies always rise above
Ladies know what people want
Someone sweet and kind and fun
The lady simply had enough

9. Bejeweled: The Dead Romantics

Baby love, I think I've been a little too kindDidn't notice you walking all over my peace of mindIn the shoes I gave you as a presentPuttin' someone first only works when you're in their top fiveAnd by the way, I'm going out tonight

10. Labyrinth: Queenie

It only feels this raw right now
Lost in the labyrinth of my mind
Break up, break free, break through, break down

11. Karma: Wahala

You're talking shit for the hell of it
Addicted to betrayal, but you're relevant
You're terrified to look down
'Cause if you dare, you'll see the glare
Of everyone you burned just to get there
It's coming back around

12. Sweet Nothing: This Is How You Lose the Time War

They said the end is coming
Everyone's up to something
I find myself running home to your
Sweet nothings
Outside they're push and shoving
You're in the kitchen humming
All that you ever wanted from me was
Sweet nothing

13. Mastermind: The Traitor Baru Cormorant

What if I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me?
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line

14. The Great War: The Poppy War

We can plant a memory garden
Say a solemn prayer, place a poppy in my hair
There's no morning glory, it was war, it wasn't fair
And we will never go back
To that bloodshed, crimson clover
Uh-huh, the worst was over
My hand was the one you reached for
All throughout the Great War
Always remember
Uh-huh, we're burned for better

15. Bigger Than the Whole Sky: The Great Believers

No words appear before me in the aftermathSalt streams out my eyes and into my earsEvery single thing I touch becomes sick with sadness'Cause it's all over now, all out to sea

16. Paris: Red, White & Royal Blue

Privacy sign on the doorAnd on my page and on the whole worldRomance is not dead if you keep it just yours

17. High Infidelity: Winter's Orbit

Storm comingGood husbandBad omenDragged my feet right down the aisle

18: Glitch: A Marvellous Light

A brief interruption, a slight malfunctionI'd go back to wanting dudes who give nothingI thought we had no chanceAnd that's romance, let's dance

19. Would've, Could've, Should've: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

I would've stayed on my knees
And I damn sure never would've danced with the devil
At nineteen
And the God's honest truth is that the pain was heaven

20. Dear Reader: Babel

Dear readerBurn all the files, desert all your past livesAnd if you don't recognize yourselfThat means you did it right
