Joy to the World Anyway



Joy to the World Anyway is the new Christmas song from synth-pop band Candy Apple Blue featuring William Rule on lead vocals. We know first hand how hard the holiday season can be for a lot of people. This year has been especially tough on everyone. The composition is a bit melancholy but it truly has an optimistic hopeful spirit. This year we wanted to share with you the healing gift of music. We hope that you enjoy the song as we poured our hearts into it. Joy to the World Anyway is taken from the forthcoming Candy Apple Blue album, Second Sight, and is out now as a two-track holiday single. This digital 45 release contains both the main mix and the instrumental performance mix. Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings from Candy Apple Blue and William Rule! © & ℗ 2020 Mrix Muzik Records

"Midnight Hour is a pop-rock new wave song about the end of the world. Its dark lyrical subject matter mirrors the uncertain times that we all live in.  It's about global warming, it's about mother nature, it's about karma, and it's about the wicked things that men do for profit. Hoyt and I wanted to write an anthem for 2020." ~ Carly Emerick (songwriter, half of Candy Apple Blue)

Lyrics

“Midnight Hour”

Verse 1:
The full moon in the sky beckons me
as the nightbird takes to flight
The cleansing of the old was meant to be
We're all running out of time

Lead-In:
The powers that be that divide the sea
are coming for you and me

Chorus:
We're in the mid, midnight hour
Let's dance until we die, no one's getting out alive
We're in the mid, midnight hour
We'll never see the dawn, the world will soon be gone

Verse 2:
Apocalyptic tears fall from the sky
They've come to purify the earth
The gift of prophecy and second sight
forewarned us all of a rebirth

Lead-In 2:
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
We blew it. Now they're coming for us

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
The gods above us, where can you be?
Can you help us save humanity?
Mother nature although you've tried, mankind committed suicide

(Repeat Chorus)

Final Chorus:
We're in the mid, midnight hour
You can scream and close your eyes but it cannot be denied
We're in the mid, midnight hour
Judgment day is here, you have everything to fear
We're in the mid, midnight hour
Let's dance until we die, no one's getting out alive
We're in the mid, midnight hour
Yeah! Close your eyes, close your eyes
Close your eyes and scream!
