Benson, George - Midnight Love Affair Lyrics

You stare at him at night and think of schemes
I stay with her each night but you're in my dreams
You tellin' him that you're goin' out just to meet some friends
I wonder if this treachery will ever ever end

We're just a midnight love affair
We get together and go nowhere
I'd really like to tell the world we care
But we're just another late night love affair

You have a little boy, you really love
I have a little daughter that I place no one above
If by chance you see me walkin down the street
You know that eyes like ours should never ever meet

We're just a midnight love affair
We get together and go nowhere
I'd really like to tell the world we care
But we're just another late night love affair

Just a midnight love affair
We get together and go nowhere
I'd really like to tell the world we care
But we're just another late night love affair

Hang ups cause a slip of tongue
Let that make us come undone
Little white lies we tell our friends
Hold our love until the end

We never seem to quit the lies
We live inside a crimson sky
We love each other in our mind
An answer is what we must find

We're just a midnight love affair
We get together and go nowhere
I'd really like to tell the world we care
But we're just another late night love affair

  8. Rodrigo F. R. de Souza

    I remember that when I was 9 yo, in the end of the 90s, my mom bought a greatest hits CD by George Benson and this was the opening track. She used to listen to that record every single day. That's how she made me a fan of his music. And I'm forever glad for that. 🙏❤

  19. guleet

    WHO can thump this down !

  20. Sultan Graf

    touch of the great quincy jones.....

  21. sandinyourshoes

    Classic Benson! This song makes me think of driving to L.A.'s Farmer's Market where I can meet someone for a friendly dinner... And having longing hopes for a midnight love affair would take place. Friendships are fine, but is it so wrong to want physical affection?

    V Wiggins

    Beach lover I love the mountains river front. Lol

    V Wiggins

    @sandinyourshoes first comment was for you.


    Lavica, yes, and cheers to this great music!

    V Wiggins

    Cheers my friend.😎✌♏


    V Wiggins , Benson helps to draw the sunset on Sunset Boulevard with this dazzling music.

  22. Enrique Herrera

    who's play drums John "JR" Robinson or Carlos Vega (RIP)? and the bassline is this Louis Johnson or Abraham Laboriel, great song!!!


    +Enrique Herrera it was Carlos Vega who provided the groove along with Louis Johnson (RIP) on bass. I agree, one magnificent song indeed.

    Peter Akinwunmi

    I knew that bass had to be thunder thumbs himself. My son is learning to play the bass and this is one song I get him to listen to for the baseline alone!

  23. Jeremy Lewis

    Back in the 80's, they used to play this nightly around midnight on the "For Lovers Only" radio show on 93.1 WZAK in Cleveland, hosted by Jeffrey Charles. Memories!!

    I still got it on tape .


    +guleet , iv just got hold of an old record player and iv been playing non stop for about a week now , at first the tone was terrible but you soon get used to it lol


    @giantbully1 when you the tone was terrible , do you mean , you did not the music , or the record player was faulty !!??? 


    +guleet no i meant that the tone we used to listen to compared with todays CDs at first its a shock when you listen to the old LPs because i have not heard an old record player in somrthing like 30 years it was a shock
