This song is by Toxic Airborn Event and it's called "Sometime Around Midnight"
And it starts, sometime around midnight. Or at least that’s when you lose yourselffor a minute or two. As you stand, under the bar lights .And the band plays some songabout forgetting yourself for a while. And the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile. And that white dress she’s wearingyou haven’t seen her for a while.
But you know, that she’s watching. She’s laughing, she’s turning. She’s holding her tonic like a cross. The room’s suddenly spinning. She walks up and asks how you are. So you can smell her perfume. You can see her lying naked in your arms.
And so there’s a change, in your emotions. And all these memories come rushing like feral waves to your mind. Of the curl of your bodies, like two perfect circles entwined And you feel hopeless and homelessand lost in the haze of the wine.
Then she leaves, with someone you don’t know. But she makes sure you saw her. She looks right at you and bolts. As she walks out the door,your blood boiling your stomach in ropes .Oh and when your friends say,“What is it? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”
Then you walk, under the streetlights. And you’re too drunk to notice,that everyone is staring at you. You just don’t care what you look like, the world is falling around you.
You just have to see her. You just have to see her. You just have to see her. You just have to see her. You just have to see her. You know that she’ll break you in two.
I really like this song , there are alot of similies in the lyrics and the acoustic verison helps the song to fit in my genre. It's a little hard to relate to my genre but the singers perspective on life could revolve around this girl. He is awe stricken when he sees her for the first time in a while and she obviously is having a major impact on him. He does not care about anything going on around him because he is so wrapped in seeing this girl who he knows will "break him in two". It's a sad song but the similies in it are perfect for this assignment. I put in bold all the similies ,the first one is "she's holding her tonic like a cross", meaning that she is gripping the drink with a firm hand almost as a means of support because she see's her ex-boyfriend. She gets nervous and holds on tight to the drink as if it would somehow magiclly give her strenght like a cross would. In the next verse there are two more simlies "like feral waves to your mind" and "like two perfect circles entwinded". Feral waves to your mind mean wild thoughts occuring in your mind, or in the singers case a feral memories coming out of nowhere and taking over. Two perfect cicrles entwinded means that there bodies fit together like puzzle pieces and he is remembering this because the feral memories rushing into his mind make him remember. The last similie in this song is "you look like you've seen a ghost" , obviously he didn't see a real ghost but he saw his ex girl friend and to him she resembles a ghost because she is able to stop him in his path and make him feel emotionaly unstable. This is a really good song in my opinion and the lyrics are well written with a ton of similies :)
