Frank Turner – Blackout

Meet me in the middle
I was singing selfish songs
It’s asking uneasy questions
[Outro]

We can’t turn just around and close the door on the world
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Meet me in the middle
They’ve been asking, asking the question
Meet me in the middle
Are you afraid of the darkness?
One system failure and it stopped her heart
I will be there waiting for you

I’m afraid of the darkness too
Meet me in the middle
The biggest power-cut in your neighbourhood since 1989
We should be asking, asking the question
[Chorus 2]
I’m afraid of the darkness too

Meet me in the middle
Wait for the morning
Meet me in the middle
Meet me in the middle

Are you afraid of the darkness?
Too long a breath between
Meet me in the middle
On the critical ward
I’m afraid of the darkness too
Bring a burning candle with you
In the hospital
Trying to feel our way out
[Chorus 1]
[Post-Chorus]
Are you afraid of the darkness?
We should be asking ourselves uneasy questions
Bring a burning candle with you
But down in the suburbs where it first went out
Meet me in the middle
I’ve been taking for granted everyone understood how easy trouble comes
I was in my comfort zone

You’re watching your favorite show
We’re all caught in the blackout
Wait for the morning
[Verse 1]
When the TV died
[Verse 2]
We’re all caught in the blackout
I’ll be waiting for you
The break and the backup of a life support
I’ll be waiting for you
But it’s not enough anymore
Trying to feel our way out
[Bridge]
One power vacuum and we’re coming apart
[Chorus 2]
Meet me in the middle
A blackout in the center of town
Bring a burning candle with you
Meet me in the middle
I will be there waiting for you
Are you afraid of the darkness?
