Steve Winwood Midland Maniac Lyrics

Take me away beyond the night

Take me away before the day

Happens nowhere else but here

Where can I go

Except for the show?

And sometime from now -and it won’t be long

I’m gonna stay in my home country

And you see it, can you see it?

Let me tell you’ bout someone I knew

Communicated but he didn’t know how

Telepathy

Met a lady but he didn’t know who

Midland maniac

Pouring out his soul to me

He’s a prisoner but he thinks he’s free

He has no one in the world to be

Let me tell you ’bout a thing or two

I sail the ocean just to get to you

Telepathy

I hear you calling but you can’t get through

Midland maniac

Pouring out my soul to you

I hope you get it and I know you do

That is one thing I can do for you

Take you away beyond the night

Take you away before the day

Happens nowhere else but here

Where can i go- except for the show?

And sometime from now-and it won’t be long

I’m gonna stay in my home country

And you see it, can you see it?
