Midnight Sun - Phillip Phillips


 

by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Midnight Sun builds on transforming the darkness of fears into the light of hope. "When you see yourself as the darkest shadow, I see you as the light." There's always hope. Phillip's deep voice brings real content to the world of rock again. 

Official Video: Waiting.

The meaning of Phillip Phillips' Midnight Sun is about light despite the darkness, hope despite fears... and ultimately about friendship giving you hope. Sometimes you see yourself in a mirror that you cannot clean, as if your faults won't go away. That's when you need someone to sing to you "My friend, let go of the fear that's inside your head" and isn't real. You need a friend. 
A friend can sing "Look how time has changed (us), the cracks in our skin" which means, "Yes, we've aged, but I've always been here for you." Only a friend can tell us, When you see yourself as the darkest shadow, I see you as the light. Only a friend can prove to us that the light in us is greater than our darkest shadow.

Ask Yourself: When all seems dark as midnight, do I still look for light and hope? (and chase the midnight sun!)


LYRICS:
There’s a storm ahead
I see it all round me
I feel it in the air
Shake the ground beneath my feet
And I know it’s all a part of me
Did you make a plan
Just to watch it crumble?
Now you see yourself
In a mirror that you cannot clean
And it’s all a part of you
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When the ceiling falls and there’s no one watching
We can build again to more than what we
Once could dream
We’re bigger than we seem
So break off these strings
That tie around you
Take smaller things
To make up something more to see
Make it bigger than it seems
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When you see yourself
As the darkest shadow
I see you as the light
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed the cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
