Corey Hart - Lamp At Midnite Lyrics




You take my heart like a bow and arrow
And shoot it at me I know
I walk the tight rope when it's narrow
To earn my degree I know
Now I'm the last boy at the playground
Who's laughin' at me - I know, I know, I know

And through the corridor I follow you
And the chaos trips my mind
Now I write you short stories
Just to say we're gonna love each other all the way
Well I know you're not the talkin' kind

And if you really want to know me
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite
Said I really want to know you
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite

In a red school house where I see you
In the morning light - I know
Send me sailin' to pick you flowers
From the isle of white - You know, you know, you know

Take my eyes to the pages
Where I draw pictures of your name
Now I speak in dialects
Just to say
(We're gonna love each other all the way)
You're not the kind of girl that plays the game

And if you really want to know me
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite
Said I really want to know you
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite
And to really understand me
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite, nite, nite, nite

And through the corridor I follow you
And the chaos trips my mind
Now I write you short stories
Just to say
(We're gonna love each other all the way)
But I know you're not the talkin' kind, kind
And if you really want to know me
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite
Said I really want to know you
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnite
And to really understand me, oh you know
Burn a lamp at midnite
I said I really want to know you, oh you know
Burn a lamp at midnite yeah

(Da, Della) continued until the end of the song.

    Hi baby at times I get and feel so lost I k how I got the world at my feet cuz I got you and I know you lost your mother recently and I lost my father this 2 wintesr and it times it could be really hard at times ,I wish you could talk to me I get very lonely for you ,I guess this means I dont mean that much to you ,cuz I could feel every feeling your feeling maybe we should drop everything, cuz it doesn't say in the rule book were going to end up together and most likely we won't, I just want to carry on has before ,where I didn't have a clue about you ,I'm not being mean I'm just facing reality ,even if we never see one another or meet at least I could say I loved you and I once knew a guy who loved me very much ,and I feel very much alone I know I said I felt you and I do but maybe I guess I want more but you love your partner and that's understandable ,sometimes I wish this never took place where you came to look for me but that's just me,I'm feeling sad cuz of my loved ones passing on I never had them as my family iwas an outsider but have a god and the angles to help me get over you but I will always love you and you will have a place in my heart gn 😇💙😎🤟i think you should leave me alone now please please I beg upon you ,your married ,I'm happy for you and have four beautiful children we come from different back grounds,I was happy being alone before I want the same things as before not to be bothered please understand but I will always lo e you forever ok before now 😇💙😎

    Hi baby I just wanted to say sweet dreams I have a feeling were never going to meet but that's ok ,you belong with your family and you know it ,in time I will get over us ,but that's just how I feel you said it in the poems but there just poems not your real writing ,I've never heard from you in years why you came searching for me that time beats me but I will never fall for another guy ,and I wish you all the best in the world,but you and I know you belong with your family and kids,I'll be alright well maybe not but I've cryed for you many nights for you to respond so why do you want to leave your beautiful partner when she belongs with you,I don't belong with you ,jeeze we haven't even met so why you talking about we should meet now,I live you to much to give up just like that over me ,please don't do it cuz of me I will let you go ,no I don't hold anything against you I love you to much for that ,besides your married I don't think you will just leave her just for me and I'm ok with that please you have to understand I haven't been in relationship in so long you have you have beautiful family I will always love you you are my first love and maybe my last I don't know what god has planned but I'm sure he would not want to leave your partner,besides she's beautiful and she needs you ,I live you I needed to get that off my chest I feel better about that now,I live you my live but it's the right thing to do or I'm I just having cold feet I don't know at the moment,but I'm glad god sent us to meet each other on here I'm so grateful for that I'm grateful for you cuz you changed my life forever and I can't thank you enough for doing that for me even though we never chatted I know your with me through spirituality and I feel you always with me I love you with everything in my heart ,you'll thank me one day for making the right choice enjoy your partner enjoy your life live, laugh,love ok sweet dreams my love 💓😎😘🙏😇💙🌻❌⭕

  21. bobby ferguson

    Corey Hart is one favorite male singers.

  22. Bryan Becker

    Ledoskell....very cool....I got this album in 1984 when I was 9 and the music on it reminds me of many a teenage crush...lol

  23. LedosKell

    I remember in 2004 finding Corey's First Offense on cassette. That being my first year in Jr High, I met this really pretty girl who never said much. Basically my first Jr High crush (really the only one) and listening to this song at the same time, the two are linked forever in my mind. Even now almost ten years later I still love the song and still think about that girl.

    We're getting married next year, btw.

    UltraPOPDJ

    Great story, thank you for sharing! I was just looking through the 1984 Album Rock charts and list then found this title. I thought that I'd check it out. What you said really helped me understand the song a little more and it's my first time hearing this. LOVE Corey Hart's vocals!

  24. Sean Sherrod

    Ya know, I was just informed / reminded that I (along with the drum line from my high school marching band) was in a video for Corey Hart! Does that sound familiar to you as well?

  25. MuscleJacker

    I remember seeing it too, on "Video Hits" hosted by "Samantha Taylor" (birth name Jadwiga Zakrzewski).

  26. gsobarzo

    I think once i saw a video-clip of this song. Is just my imagination, or it really exists??
