Red Mecca – The Longest Hour

Red Mecca - The Longest HourThe Longest Hour' is a fant­ast­ic synth pop song by the Swedish band 'Red Mecca', which can almost be cat­egor­ised as dream pop. The song comes with elo­quent, mel­an­chol­ic lyr­ics that fill the song's dur­a­tion with sub­stance and lots of emo­tion almost without a break.

The only cri­ti­cism I have of the song, but that's just my per­son­al opin­ion, is that the song has out­lived itself at around 04:05min. A short­er radio edit would be recom­mend­able as a single release. This song is part of our Spotify playl­ist ‘New Synth Pop Songs 2022‘. The playl­ist is updated con­tinu­ously. Follow this playl­ist now and don’t miss any of the latest synth pop hits in 2022.

Lyrics of 'Red Mecca – The Longest Hour'

I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me
but my place hasn’t changed
still smells of tobacco and gin

I pre­pare for winter, I grew up right here
I talk to the dark clouds about you
hop­ing you’ll hear me

I’ll be your per­sona hop­ing you’ll hear me
A tear you can not cry hop­ing you’ll hear me

I put on a red dress
just to set the tone
I’ll be wild for you now
I want you to come back for more

I want you to come back for more

hop­ing you’ll hear me
A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me
A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me

I put on some make up
I copied from TV
A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me

That’s build­ing up inside of me
That’s build­ing up inside of me
That’s build­ing up inside of me

I’ll be your per­sona (hop­ing you’ll hear me)
A tear you can not cry (hop­ing you’ll hear me)
The words you can not say (just to set the tone)
I’ll be your per­sona tonight
I’ll be wild for you now

I want you to come back for more
I want you to come back for more

hop­ing you’ll hear me

A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me
A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me

I want you to come back for more
I want you to come back for more

A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me
A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me

A chance to fill the void that’s
build­ing up inside of me
I’ve made it all the way here
I’ve been the stronger me
