Benson, George - Turn Out The Lamplight Lyrics




Comin' home is always joy to me
Ain't a place that I would rather be
I need to see the heaven in your eyes

'Cause you're the love that's always hard to find
Every dreams that's ever crossed my mind
Only you can make the day end right

So turn out the lamplight
Sit by my side, love me tonight
So turn out the lamplight
Let's dream for a while just you and I
And we'll let the world go spinning by

On a day when problems get me down
It's nice to think about the love we found
All I need is you and I'll get by

And though the years may make me old and gray
Darling you'll still take my breath away
'Cause time can't change the warmth inside your smile

So turn out the lamplight
Sit by my side, love me tonight
Turn out the lamplight
Let's dream for a while just you and I
And we'll let the world go spinning by

Sit by my side
Sit by my side and love me, love me tonight
Turn out the lamplights and let's dream
Let's dream for ??
Yes, you and I
Oh, sit by my side

  13. kimhotlips

    This tune always touches my heart, from a very young age (old soul)

  14. tuxguys

    When "This Masquerade" cracked the Top-40 in July of 1976 (Bicentennial month!), Benson was not a household name, except to Jazz listeners; I happen to know that a lot of people who heard that record for the first time, perhaps coming into the middle of it on their car radios, thought that they were hearing a new Stevie Wonder tune:
    This track illustrates how easy it could be to make that error.
    (As smooth and sexy as this 1980 recording is, I can't help but wonder how many children were conceived with it playing in the background.)

  15. cleandiaper

    The entire album is flawless.

  16. kimhotlips

    One sexy tune right here....

  17. Percy Walker

    George u a bad m f on this q producing play on player percy in dallas

  18. Jeff Darden

  19. jairzinho1974

    I Love this beautiful Song!

  20. Leon Holt

    My parents played the hell out of this album. '79. Summer.

    celt67

    They'd have had a job,..... it wasn't released till august 1980.

  21. Michael Tsung

    Possibly the most beautiful song ever recorded

  22. Ronald Jones

    Hands down the best G.B. love ballad EVER! If there's better, I haven't heard it.

    Lady T

    his cover of "Unchained Melody" is stellar!

    Daniel Hines

    Yes, this is one of the greatest GB songs ( and therefore one of the greatest songs ever recorded ). "Love Dance" from the same album is also superb, as is "Love all the hurt away" ( different album ). Give Me the Night is an incredible album....

    Moody Avocado

    @Daniel Hines I agree. Love All the Hurt Away leaves me speechless.

    Earnestine Darling

    I agree Sir.

  23. Charles Peterson III

    Oh yeah, this is the spot that I wanna be in! Play on George. Play on.

  24. Robert Olidge
