Jones, Quincy - 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 grey
Darlin' 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
So turn out the lamplight
Let's dream for a while
Just you and I
And we'll let the world go spinning by

    To the lady I brought to Logroño, Spain, this song I warmly dedicate. This music played in the back of my mind as we engaged in light banter during dinner and as we walked through the narrow alleys of Calle de San Juan. If you only knew how madly I was falling for you throughout those moments. The velvet texture and angelic harmonies of this song were the perfect compliment to those few precious evenings.

    Folks, let's not forget where this song originated. Heatwave did this first, sung by Johnnie Wilder Jr lead singer. Written by their lyricist Rod Temperton. Although I like Benson's version. Heatwave should get all the credit.

    Frank Smith

    Never realized this, I thought Benson wrote this. cheers

    Futuristic Concepts

    The One ...Heatwave's version was very good I must admit but George Benson's version? Makes your mind wander to a rainy night and the fireplace is lit, candles are lit, the faint smell of incense is in the air. And there you are, cuddled up with that special someone, sipping chilled wine, maybe sharing a tree, talking and grooving to the melody before intimacy gets into full swing. George's music is well known for setting the mood for romance. You become true Stars of the Story. Just my opinion from my own encounters.


    I actually like George Benson’s version better. Why? It’s because it has the Quincy Jones touch. His magic gives this song a velvety texture and a more well balanced sound.

    A I N

    The doubt about that and Mr. Johnnie Wilder Jr falsetto voice makes that tune more beautiful


    Rod Temperton's fingerprint is all over this. I need for Rod to get his props. He was too great not to. No doubt Q is the greatest producer to ever live. But during this period, one of the things that made Q's productions so great was Rod's songwriting and arranging contributions. The best songs on Off The Wall and Thriller were the ones that Rod wrote.
