Night Song

from Nuit Blanche by Marc Farre

/

about

recorded in a single take, very late one summer night, three musicians playing across the deep darkness of a large room

lyrics

highway, highway at night
in the middle of my way
my way, all right
in the middle of time on
time on my side
in the middle of life

life is, life is a dream
in the middle of love song
love song supreme
in the middle of night
on the radio tonight

night song, night song inside
in the middle of life song
life song a ride
on the highway tonight
on the highway

< incantation >
the road, the signs on the road
the words on the signs on the road
the lights on the words on the signs on the road
the cars from the lights on the words on the signs on the road
driving home late across the state
thinking of you

one hand on my heart
one hand on the wheel
one hand on the dial
one hand on the night
thinking of you

driving home late
across the state
the window’s open, it’s very late
thinking of you

and the filling station man looks like a friend you used to know
you thought he was dead years ago
dead like a thing on the road

driving home late
across the state
thinking of you

highway, highway at night
in the middle of my way
my way, all right
and the taste of the night song
night song tonight

oh the taste of the night
on the highway tonight

about

Marc Farre Sebastopol, California

“In the company of European-influenced musicians like Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, and Nick Cave. A throaty voice, highly poetic lyrics and a kinetic band behind him. Compelling.”
