M83 – Midnight City lyrics

Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
The night city grows
Look at the horizon glow

Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Drinking in the lights
Following the neon signs


Waiting for the word
Looking at the milky skyline
The city is my church
It wraps me in the blinding twilight

Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Waiting in a car
Waiting for a ride in the dark

    I think that this song is more of a self-exploration. Not about two people, but about finding the adventurer inside of you. Are you willing to take that chance and go where you don't know? Are you willing to seek out and experience everything the city has to offer? Stop waiting for a car that may or may not come, walk the streets and fall in love with all that is around you. Make those neon signs your cathedral and the skyline your alter. Fall in love with life and live your adventure.

    The first time I hear this song it made me feel like taking a ride in my car at midnight down sunset blvd, west hollywood, and hollywood. Strangely enough as I researched the song further I came to find that its title and lyrics described exactly what I had envisioned. This is the song that now plays in my car as I am cruising down sunset blvd after dark. This is an awesome track showing the perfect combination of sounds and lyrics.

    When ur driving you feel free but in control to explore a new destination. But I don't think this has to with a car. I think this has to do with the want of freedom and a time where they felt free and they supress themselves with doubt of not being able to have that freedom and possibly turning to the influence of alcohol. However in their mind, they see what I see. When I heard this before even hearing the lyrics I imagined picking up my friends and going for a ride in a lit but somewhat dark platform, the harbor of new york city if you will. The outskirts of new jersy. The boonies of florida even. Animal eyes glow in the dark and while they might be metaphoring the street lights, I feel they may be talking about nocturnal animals in which we all know we have somewhat in us at some point. Riding in the dark, watching as dusk falls over the sky, and loving the city ur in is inspirational and when they heard the melody of this production, they had to of come to that first thought. I mean, I did.

    As the song begins you immediately feel a sense of urgency. An overwhelming explosion of emotion comes at the end with the saxophone - ending the song, beautifully. "the city is my church"; a favorite lyric of mine, states that the listener perceives the city as his safe-haven - a place where he can freely express his faith; in partying. The overall meaning of this song is about, obviously, living in the night scene. Where a particular girl, who might be the very cause of this person waiting for the night to begin. His intrigue in her is heightened by light reflecting from her eyes.
    I just can't say that I like this song. Oh no, that would be understating my opinion - I love this song.

    Its almost like it wants you to feel nostalgic and to feel the yearning of the years before. Its makes me happy and sad, excited yet depressed all at the same time. And when the sax kicks in at the end its like it reasures me everything will be okay. To me it littaraly feels like I'm visiting some new city with bright neon light and an enitre new race of people that stop stare and ask where have you been? And welcome back to your true home. It makes me wonder if I am really meant to be part of where I am now or should I be waiting on that care to take me to the night city. This song is just instellar and beyond.
