Hour Past Midnight

By Jon Levy

An hour past midnight, and I'm all alone 
Standing on the platform waiting to go home 
And it's been too long since I've been at ease 
I can't wait to stop and rest my feet 
Burning all my candles at both ends 
But ask me and I’d do it all again 

I will always be the one to carry on 
Give me strength to push right through until the dawn 

Even though I'm home now, my eyes just won’t close 
When will it be over, God only knows 
And it’s been too long since I've seen some peace 
I can't wait to stop and get some sleep 
Drifting through the hours 'til the end 
I can see it just around the bend 

I will always be the one to carry on 
Give me strength to push right through until the dawn 

And it's been too long since I've been at ease 
I can't wait to stop and rest my feet 
Burning all my candles at both ends 
But ask me and I’d do it all again 

I will always be the one to carry on 
Give me strength to push right through until the dawn
