Lyrics for Midnight City by M83:

Verse 1
Waiting in the car
Waiting for the ride in the dark
At night the city grows
Look at the horizon glow

Verse 2
Waiting in the car
Waiting for a ride in the dark
Drinking in the lights
Following the neon signs

Verse 3
Waiting for a word (Word)
Looking at the milky skyline (Skyline)
The city is my church (The city is my church)
It wraps me in its blinding twilight (Twilight)

Outro
Waiting in the car
Waiting for the ride in the dark
Waiting in the car (Waiting in the car)
Waiting for the ride in the dark (Ride in the dark)
Waiting in the car (Car)
Waiting for the ride in the dark
Waiting in the car (Waiting in the car)
Waiting for the ride in the dark
Waiting in the car (Waiting in the car)
Waiting for the ride in the dark

Song Facts

“Midnight City” is off of M83’s sixth, and critically acclaimed album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming (Naive, 2011). The song’s catchiness quickly made it one of the most popular songs of the year, appearing on the top of many “Best of” lists. The song is a tribute to city life and the city itself, especially how it comes alive during the nighttime.

Anthony Gonzalez’s comment on the use of the saxophone:

Sometimes a song needs an element to be finished. You know that this element has been overused in the past and is considered clichéd or cheesy, but the song needs it. With this album, the whole idea was to do something and have no regrets.

The music video is a tribute to the movies Village of the Damned and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
