Bastille has debuted their new single “Quarter Past Midnight” … (May 9), and it is, as they say, a tune.
“‘Quarter Past Midnight’ is about trying to capture that moment of a night out,” frontman Dan Smith says in a press release.

The release of a brand new, brilliant single “Quarter Past Midnight”, this week had fans frothing at the mouth with the prospect of a new Bastille album – which is currently in the end stages of being mixed, Dan says….

“By the second one it was a different time, but there were songs like ‘Warmth’ that I really felt should have been a single. But that’s how it was. ‘Quarter Past Midnight’ as the opening track is like the beginning of the story and sets the tone for that moment of the night.”……

[Verse 1]
It’s a quarter past midnight
As we cut through the city
Yeah, yeah, yeah, the streets are getting restless
Good times bad decisions
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a quarter past midnight
And the sirens are mending some hearts
But we’re the losers on the back seats
Singing “Love Will Tear Us Apart”
It’s a quarter past midnight
Still avoiding tomorrow
It’s a quarter past midnight
But we’re just getting going

[Chorus]
We keep on running
Running through a red light
Like we’re trying to burn the night away
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh

[Post-Chorus]
This is my favorite part oh
Help me piece it all together darling
Before it falls apart oh
Help me piece it all together

[Verse 2]
It’s a quarter past midnight
And the speakers are blowing
Yeah, yeah, We want the bodies on the billboards
Not the lives underneath them
Yeah, yeah, yeah, and now we’re crawling up the walls again
And its a quarter past the world
And you said we’d leave this place in dust
And fall from heaven straight through hell
We never know what we have
We never knew what we had

[Chorus]
We keep on running
Running through a red light
Like we’re trying to burn the night away
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh
Why are we always chasing after something
Like we trying to throw our lives away?
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh

[Post-Chorus]
This is my favorite part oh
Help me piece it all together darling
Before it falls apart oh
Help me piece it all together

[Bridge]
(I can’t remember, I can’t remember
I can’t remember, I can’t remember)
It’s a quarter past midnight
And the secrets are flowing
Our lips are getting looser
I don’t know what I’m saying
We never knew what we had
I never know what I’ve had

[Chorus]
We keep on running
Running through a red light
Like we’re trying to burn the night away
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh
Why are we always chasing after something
Like we trying to throw our lives away?
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh

[Post-Chorus]
This is my favorite part so
Help me piece it all together darling
Before it falls apart
Help me piece it all together
