about

I did a ‘mentoring session’ with a songwriter I much admire who at some point in the conversation, abruptly stopped me and said with conviction ‘you know, your problem Dan is that you want people to like you---too much’. A day or two later I told that story to Slaid Cleves, who’d helped me out with ‘Goodbye to Dad’ a few years back, and he said something to the effect of ‘Oh man, she gave you 10 years of therapy in 20 minutes’, which was true I guess. This was the very next song I wrote…

lyrics

That Time of Night
By Dan Weber © 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

When the clock’s been punched, and your shift is through
That same old wave, washes over you
The loading docks let out a sigh
When that train rolls through, like it always does
She blows her whistle, maybe just because
It’s getting’ to be, That Time of Night

So you stop at the bar, and your blood shifts gears
Let the rain starts fallin’ on, deaf ears
Then you think too late, to call your wife
But she won’t be up, no, she don’t wait now
It’s too many years, and anyhow
It’s getting’ to be, That Time of Night

Chorus:
That Time of Night, when the dark begins
That Time of Night, when the clock don’t have no friends
When that drink you had, was the last, till you ordered one in spite
Cause it’s getting’ to be, That Time of Night

When some wine-drunk girl asks you to dance
Aw, she’s half your age, twice the chance
But as luck would have it, the song ends, just in time
While she bums a smoke, she talks so fast
The cold front settles down in your chest
Cause it’s getting’ to be, That Time of Night

Repeat Chorus

Come tomorrow, I’ll be back again,
when that old familiar ache, gets beneath my skin, hmmm…

So when the last stop home is 20 bucks in gas
And there’s a ‘Scratch and Win’ right there in your grasp
But it ain’t meant to be, at least not tonight
Cause the price of a dollar is exactly the same
As three nickels, three quarters and a dime in change
When it’s getting’ to be, That Time of Night

Repeat Chorus
