Midnight boys are outside
Scrapin’ tears up off the street
Standing guard over the window
Where the lonely linda sleeps
There’s a kid named eddie
Walks like an angel in defeat
The ashes of a romance come
Traces linda’s name in a seat

Calls
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one

In a room full of contenders
Shadow boxin’, eddie’s strong
Till he drops through a feigned surrender
To the canvas draped in scarves
Stole from linda’s bedroom
The night he laid at her feet
And the midnight boys were wasted
Down on king street

He calls out
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one

Midnight’s base is st mary’s
Midnight boys hide from the rain
Stay with the stolen sisters
Till the streets are dry again
Talking fast cars and chrome parts
Different worlds and strange girls
Empty homes, busted hearts
And kneeling with linda in the dark

Linda will you let me be the one
Linda will you, hey let me be the one
Linda will you let me be the one
