Hey guys! Today we’re gonna listen to an obscure song (you can’t find it in Wikipedia). But it is such a beautiful song with high quality!

It is Midnight from Barcelona, an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington. The band’s sound is harmonious and piano-based with elements of rock.

Did you notice that: the name of the song + the name of the band

= Midnight in Barcelona! Is it so sweet?

Now let’s start to listen! See if you could feel the atmosphere of Midnight in Barcelona!

Lyrics:

Curled around you babe,
You’re lost in your head,
I get lost in your word.
You feel far too deep,
It keeps you from sleep,
And I know that it hurts.Tell me everything that you lost,
Show me every home you left behind,
Point out all the ones that you loved,
I’ve got time.Please don’t be sad,
You don’t have to smile to make it by.
It’s a new midnight, a new sunrise,
And that can’t be bad.
 
Breaking through your walls gets hard when it falls,
But I think you should know,
When you hide away from the light, and shiver at night,
I’ve been there before.I’ll tell you everything that I lost,
Show you every home I’ve left behind,
Point out all the ones I loved,
We got time.

Please don’t be sad,
You don’t have to smile to make it by.
It’s a new midnight, a new sunrise,
And that can’t be bad.

And I’ll stay and help you find a way,
In the new midnight, the new sunrise,
Everyday.


Practice:

Choose a line you like the most, and explain why.

My favorite line is “you don’t have to smile to make it by”. Life always pushes us forward, and everyone is telling us “just smile!” Maybe sometimes we need a voice telling us we don’t have to smile all the time.

How about you? 

Share your feelings with us!

See you!
