Frank Turner – Blackout

I will be there waiting for you
It’s asking uneasy questions
[Outro]
They’ve been asking, asking the question
But down in the suburbs where it first went out
Bring a burning candle with you
I’ll be waiting for you
Wait for the morning

Meet me in the middle
[Chorus 2]
But it’s not enough anymore
I will be there waiting for you
Bring a burning candle with you
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Meet me in the middle
Are you afraid of the darkness?
[Verse 1]
Meet me in the middle
Meet me in the middle
[Chorus 2]
Meet me in the middle
You’re watching your favorite show
Wait for the morning
When the TV died
I was in my comfort zone
I was singing selfish songs
Bring a burning candle with you

[Chorus 1]
One power vacuum and we’re coming apart

I’ll be waiting for you
We should be asking ourselves uneasy questions
Are you afraid of the darkness?

We can’t turn just around and close the door on the world
Meet me in the middle
On the critical ward
We’re all caught in the blackout
Meet me in the middle
[Bridge]
[Post-Chorus]
Are you afraid of the darkness?
In the hospital
I’m afraid of the darkness too

Trying to feel our way out

We’re all caught in the blackout
The biggest power-cut in your neighbourhood since 1989
Meet me in the middle
The break and the backup of a life support
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Meet me in the middle
Are you afraid of the darkness?
I’m afraid of the darkness too
Trying to feel our way out
We should be asking, asking the question
Meet me in the middle
One system failure and it stopped her heart
Too long a breath between
I’ve been taking for granted everyone understood how easy trouble comes
I’m afraid of the darkness too
A blackout in the center of town
Meet me in the middle
[Verse 2]
