"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”

Carly Emerick and Hoyt Emerick

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!

"It's been such a crazy year. 2020 has had a lot of darkness. So in the song, I'm calling to the magical powers of the moon to set things right again." ~ Carly about Moon (Light up My Darkness)

Lyrics

Moon (Light up My Darkness)

Words & Music by Carly Emerick

Verse 1:
I lay here in the darkness
A sad sad lonely room
I count my blessings one by one
(One by one, one by one)

Lead-in:
Then there's a light that hits my window
(My window's so cold)
It shines so brightly on my soul

Chorus:
Moon, light up my darkness
I have nowhere to go
I'm hoping you could show me the way
Moon, light up my darkness
Your blue vanilla sky is shimmering in my eyes

Verse 2:
Purple shades of velvet illuminate my gloom
I feel the healing has begun 
(has begun, it has begun)

Lead-in 2:
But there's a monster in my closet
(My monster is old)
I keep him chained won't let him go

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge: 
Blue vanilla sky, blue vanilla sky

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-lib:
Moon, light up my darkness
I'm really lucky to see you shine tonight
I'm really lucky to see you shine tonight
Moon, light up my darkness
I'll brave the morning light if you stay with me through the night
Moon, light up my darkness
