Exclusive Lyric Premiere: Phillip Phillips - "Midnight Sun"

Phillip Phillips Midnight Sun

Phillip Phillips is one huge star in the making. We got to know him on 'American Idol' and saw him win Season 11. His coronation song 'Home' became one of the best selling singles of 2012, and Phillip's riveting Mumford & Sons-ish debut album ("The World from the Side of the Moon") received positive reviews. Although getting snubbed by the Grammys the following year, Phillip didn't lose focus and continuing building up a name and increasing his fan-base with sold-out tours.

Now in 2014, 23-year-old singer from Albany, Georgia returns to the spotlight with the imminent release of his sophomore studio album, 'Behind the Light'. The lead single was released on March 3rd, 2014. Only one after the iTunes launch, Phillip performed for the first time 'Raging Fire' on television on the newest season of 'Idol'.

'Behind the Light' is scheduled for US release on May 19th. But before that new Phillip album impacts into our lives, DirectLyrics and Interscope Records team up to give you the exclusive premiere to the lyrics of one of the album tracks...'Midnight Sun'. The inspiring folk-pop mid-tempo was co-written by Derek A.E. Fuhrmann, Phillip Phillips and Gregg Wattenberg. We've heard the song, and Phillip sounds in it like never before!

Phillip Phillips is set to premiere the full audio of the countdown single 'Midnight Sun' via Twitter later today, May 16th. Make sure to follow his timeline!

Update: Phillip posted a 1:30 minute snippet of 'Midnight Sun'. Stream below.

There’s a storm ahead
I see it all round me
I feel it in the air
Shake the ground beneath my feet
And I know it’s all a part of me
Did you make a plan
Just to watch it crumble
Now you see yourself
In a mirror that you cannot clean
And it’s all a part of you
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When the ceiling falls and there’s no one watching
We can build again to more than what we
Once could dream
We’re bigger than we seem
So break off these strings
That tie around you
Take smaller things
To make up something more to see
Make it bigger than it seems
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When you see yourself
As the darkest shadow
I see you as the light
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed the cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that’s inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
