Yazoo - Midnight Lyrics



Midnight, it's raining outside, he must be soaking wet
Everyone is sleeping tight, God knows I tried my best
Darling, you know it looks bad
Just lost the best thing that I ever had, well
Still I don't know why I did him wrong, no
It's too late, now, he's gone to say

[CHORUS]
Baby, oh, no, can't leave me now
Said, think about it, please
'Cause I love you, and I need you
And I should have thought of that before I did you wrong, yeah
Before I did you wrong
I should have thought of that
Oo, before I did you wrong

Heartache, heartache, yeah
When I saw his face I could see how bad I'd let him down
Cheating when he was working hard, I just had to mess around
I knew from the start he ain't got much money
I should have stayed content with all that good, sweet honey
He's a good, strong man, and I love him so
So how on Earth can I let him go? said, whoah

[CHORUS]

And now, it's midnight, it's raining outside, yeah
And I'm soaking wet, still looking for that man of mine
And I ain't found him yet, well
All of this rain can wash away my tears
But nothing can replace all of those wasted years
In all of this I tell you I have learnt
Playing with fire gets you burnt
And I'm still burning

[CHORUS]

You say you'll lose your pride
Well, don't you know, dear? don't you know
I'll lose so much more if you go now?
No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no, no

Said, whoah
Do do

Do do do-do do do-do do-do do
Do do do-do do-do-do-do-do-do
Do do do do do
Na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-da da da-da da, ba ba-da
Da do da no
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

    This is truly one of the greatest albums of the 1980s. It deserves a remastered deluxe edition.

  35. garry parsons

    just fantstic

  36. chris carlisle

    Love Yazoo

  37. theNineCorners

    Enough with the Adele comments. Adele wasn't, and isn't New Wave. She's great for Chamber Pop or even Contemporary Pop like Celine Dion, and has amazing vocals .. yet Alison Moyet dwells within a completely different league of Soul, Synthpop and Alternative Androgynous Pop. Great ladies, but shouldn't be pinned against each other for comparison.

  38. Rasim Alijagic

    Yazoo is my life. Thank you for your time and longer life from Vulkan planets. Merry Christmas end hope new year may friends, ja vas volim i svako dobro vam želim. Pozdrav iz Bosne moji prijatelji. Ja vas pozdravljam iz Bos. KRUPE lijepoga grada u Bosni, dođite i uživajte u prirodi

  39. Rasim Alijagic

    To je Yazoo, moja omiljena pjesma

  40. J L.

    that voice engulfs me with every feeling ....makes me crazy

  41. agentcurls

    So Soulful! High school days 💕💕

  42. Grant Lyndsay

    Millenials take note ... this is music

    GEREMIA GIL

    Agreed. I'm 17 and it's very hard to find good music these days.

    turkeysub3000

    as a "millenial" believe me, to me this is far better than most music out today.

    Kitty Bubbles

    fuck off with that millenial shit, every generation likes this music and youre being a shriveled old man making a comment like that

  43. DJ K-DOG

    Vince and Allison are one of the best duos of all time.. Just his genius beats and her timeless voice

  44. Meghan Markle

    The breath and the vocal kinda go in and out like a saw blade. Catching your breath at the right time helps too.

  45. HYPNO SOUNDSYSTEM

    The tension At 2:24 onwards.

  46. Sarah D

    Brings back so many memories that I would not change

  47. Diego Quilodrán Reyes

    Soul vibes and electronics beats!! Masterpiece

  48. DRUNKEN RAMBLE

    Playing with fire can get you burned.

  49. John Damage

    Gives me goose bumps

  50. Vincent Gatekeeper

    Really wierd but I always heard them announced as YAZ not Yazoo, and I was there at their concerts during the 80s. No matter, this just makes me wish time travel was real cuz I would be back there in a heartbeat.

    John Damage

    Yazoo is the real name Yaz cos of some copyright in the USA

    Vincent Gatekeeper

    WorksopGimp ahhhh thanks for clarifying it! Makes sense.

  51. Jane Clarke

    god she is fantastic

    ReaktorLeak

    It's a shame the vocal is mixed so low and muddy. It sounds like she was standing 10 feet from the mic. :(

  52. honeygroove64

    I've never forget Alison's "baby" of this song for 36 years.

  53. Ninouche Delanight

    Sayait je plane ouiiiii

    Ninouche Delanight

    C'est pas interdit 😙

  54. oldskoolpaul

    I Love Alison we share the same birthday and from nearly the same town 20 miles away. I fell in love with her first time I saw her on TOTP. I was ten lol Awesome. Love you Alison Only you

  55. ThePhilGrimm

    I have always loved Yazoo.
    I have always loved Vince Clarke's work.
    I have never fathomed why he would rather work with anyone else.
    Alison's voice has always worked with electronic music.

    John Damage

    Andy Bell was great

    Meghan Markle

    But why are there two name? Yaz and Yazoo. Seems Yazoo does video and live performances but Yaz does not. But the music is the same, weird.

    Marci Sorrell

    @Meghan Markle -  They had to go by Yaz in the US because an American business already owned the trademark for the name Yazoo.

  56. Tim Sollén

    This is the result when two great entertainers collaborate, pure genius.

  57. Scott Beckstead

    Pretty sure she's one of the best singers I've ever heard.

  58. Josef Kulhavy

    Yazoo/Alf mega lowe you

  59. Marek Marlow

    naliehavé - I love you I love need you.....

  60. Senator Velveteen

    She sings the hell out of this song!

    John Damage

    Old jazz sing once said "you got to get ugly when you sing, you got to feel it"

  61. CNVideos

    A perfect marriage of soulful blues and crisp, mechanical synth.

  62. Joy Bach

    fond memories with this song...

  63. Adret 200

    Written by Alison Moyet and perfect for her voice

  64. Rhonda Richardson

    You never know what you have until you lose it! That is the ultimate quote of all time. To this day I regret the one I thought I loved wrong now I I found out he was the ONLY one I loved.😿

    Douglas Decker

    I'm sorry.for.your loss. There's one out there for me too

  65. Orla

    Adele's voice is just one big whine

    Meghan Markle

    And why do you say?

  66. David Maholchic

    If I had to pick a favorite off The album just saying

    Air Guitar

    yeah this one and Too Pieces for me.

  67. master pice 1 . master pice.2 ween ween.1

    Midnihet voise aver

  68. John Jameson

    Even if Adele ate her own heart out she still wouldn't sound quite as touching and as good as this!

  69. John Jameson

    TRULY AMAZIN, shows Alf as clearly the most expressive, wonderful and amazing female vocalist of the times. Listen just LISTEN! ;)

  70. Rhonda Richardson

    This song is the ultimate in making you realize how you did wrong to someone... But It's usually too late to take back what you might have done to your best love of your life.
    .

    Rhonda Richardson

    I loved two guy's at the same time and couldn't pick between the two and ended up losing both...

    steve humphries

    totally agree x

  71. Rhonda Richardson

    I will always love James Ryan Terry.. I

  72. Penny Cuff

    I got to see her perform last night at the Fonda in LA! I sure wish she would have performed this, my favorite song! <3

  73. Stephen

    one of the best

  74. Steve Mallett

    Astounding. Check out what she does at 2:35 with the word 'no'. This is control that few singers - in any genre - Ever achieve. Just stunning. LOVE Yaz.:)

  75. Andy Newitt

    I never tire of listening and singing this song... no one (I repeat no one) matches the vocal prowess of our Alison ... the Lady's a vocal genius... just sayin

  76. Hugh K. Ayers

    Elegance.

  77. Carl Bishop

    Yazoo best band and two brilliant albums ,so the live in 81 and 2008 also been to see erasure 39 times due to being a massive vince fan ,but give me the yazoo concerts any day

    Meghan Markle

    Taz not Yazoo

    James Simmons

    Yes Yazoo
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazoo_(band)

  78. Beardo Kalrizian

    this song has been braking my heart since the 5th grade!!!

  79. Jeremy parker

    There are many great moments on this album, but this one sticks out. The combination of the emotion in the vocal and the beautiful and subtle way the music backs it up.

  80. Inga Jurkeviciute

    Love. Fantastic! 🌟

  81. CusterFlux

    One of the best voices to come out of England in the 20th Century - no exaggeration.

  82. Joannie Trotter

    Still a fave album.

  83. lino klein meuleman

    allison moyet is better voice then adele,sorry adele thats wat i think .

    DJ K-DOG

    Agreed, she is an influence

    Jim LaWayne

    @DJ K-DOG the roots of techno... D.J.Dirty

    John Damage

    Both great singers imo Just that Xfacter crap wasn't around in them days, people think that it's Adele if never heard of Alison, and that Bassline and melody lets not forget Vince

    Bill A

    "Midnight" is one of my most favorite songs... every time I listen to, it takes me back emotionally to those innocent better times. Sigh...

    domster92

    But they do look a bit alike. Allison could pass for Adele's mom, I think.

  84. George Hinojosa

    I LIKE ADELE BUT ALISON MOYET HAS THE BEST VOICE EVER. DON'T FORGET HER SOLO CARRER.

  85. TOMASZ Kłos

    I L U.....

  86. Fabio Communications

    Adele and all the current bullshit music should listen carefully to all Yazoo albums.

    gixxerboy555

    very well said... ;)

    Patrick Murphy

    well maybe not the 2nd one tbh! But i will say that UaE was probably the best album i ever bought. Midnight and Didnt i bring your love down are two incredible pop songs. First saw this on an irish tv show...one of the other guests was Lionel Ritchie..he was blown away (they also did Bad Connection)

    JAMIE LESTER

    I was thinking the same..well said.
    Alison Moyet was pure raw talent...What a voice..incredible..so much feeling..brilliant.
    Yazoo were brilliant...Annie Lennox is also a brilliant female singer.

    Eric G. Young

    I couldn't agree more. Alison Moyet has an absolutely incredible voice. I'm still hooked after all these years and got the chance to tell her a few years ago in San Francisco where she gave an electric performance. Adele has noting on Alison

  87. Elaine Keary

    Fantastic 🌟🙌🏼🌟

  88. Nicolas Ho

    So many awesome memories with her voice and Vince behind the electronics...a wonder combo

    gixxerboy555

    damn sure...this was pure magic and will never ever come back... :/

    Rhonda Richardson

    I should have thought before I did him wrong .... It's usually too late

  89. Liz Oreilly

    So many memories, god I love this woman, vince is pretty dam good too xx

    lino klein meuleman

    Liz Oreilly vince does not sing alot,thats why he plays the syntersizer .

    Scott Beckstead

    Yep, she's the best.

    Marc Ludford

    Yazoo shouldn't of split

  90. artist Taylor

    this is the only song ive heard that really put`s it out there...losing THAT MAN U REALLY LOVED and theres nothing u can do about it

    Rhonda Richardson

    That's the simple truth .

    Rhonda Richardson

    I love james r Terry

    Éjfél

    Odakint esik

    Bizonyára bőrig ázott már

    Mindenki mélyen alszik

    Isten a tanúm, hogy én mindent megpróbáltam

    De kedvesem, te jól tudod,

    Hogy mindennek vége

    Nem az enyém már a legnagyszerűbb dolog,

    Ami csak volt ebben az életben

    Nos, még mindig nem tudom,

    Miért bántam így el veled,

    Most már túl késő,

    Ő elment, miért mondanám, hogy:

    Kedvesem,

    Ó, ne,

    Most nem hagyhatsz itt,

    Kérlek, gondold meg,

    Mert szeretlek téged,

    Érzem a szükséged (Rád van szükségem)

    Erre kellett volna gondolnom,

    Mielőtt így megbántottalak…

    Fáj, fáj a szívem

    Amikor megláttam az arcát,

    Tudtam, milyen csúnyán becsaptam

    Megcsaltam, míg ő keményen dolgozott

    S mindent elrontottam,

    Már a kezdet kezdetén tudtam,

    Hogy nincs sok pénze,

    Be kellett volna érnem

    Az én édes egyetlenemmel végre

    Ő egy rendes és erős férfi,

    Nagyon jó szeretni,

    De hogy a fenébe hagyhattam őt elmenni?

    Kedvesem,

    Ó, ne,

    Most nem hagyhatsz itt,

    Kérlek, gondold meg,

    Mert szeretlek téged,

    Érzem a szükséged (Rád van szükségem)

    Erre kellett volna gondolnom,

    Mielőtt így megbántottalak…

    S most eljött az éjfél

    Odakint esik

    Már bőrig áztam

    Még mindig keresem az emberem

    De eddig még nem találtam

    Bár ez az eső majd elmossa könnyeim,

    De semmi sem pótolhatja elpocsékolt éveim

    Most már elárulom neked,

    Megtanultam játszani a tűzzel

    Megégetlek

    S én is veled égek

    Kedvesem,

    Ó, ne,

    Most nem hagyhatsz itt,

    Kérlek, gondold meg,

    Mert szeretlek téged,

    Érzem a szükséged (Rád van szükségem)

    Erre kellett volna gondolnom,

    Mielőtt így megbántottalak…

    Azt mondod, semmivé lesz a büszkeséged

    Hát nem látod, kedvesem,

    Nem látod,

    Hogy én sokkal többet veszítek,

    Ha most elmész?

    Ó, ne…

    Fineas, várom a szöveget!
    K.

  93. Sally Ann

    This was sampled by SoundCrowd - Dublin based DJ's - in 1994 - "Think About It Please" - the mix itself and the melody for me was absolutely heartbreaking - never failed to bring on the emotions!! I am so surprised to hear all these years later that it was actually Alison Moyet/yazoo that were sampled - beautiful!

  94. andrew1236

    Great album - period

    Hope Kennedy

    My older sister hated me for constantly "stealing" this album (it never left the house, just changed rooms). I should've stole it permanently 😉💖

  95. Dorain Grey

    '' FOR YOU"! ;)

  96. Angharad

    Gods, that voice. Incredible. Even after all these years, it frakking kills me, every time!

    @Angharad < I know exactly what you mean... "Midnight" is the most favorite songs from them... every time I listen to, it takes me back emotionally to those innocent times. Sigh... Goosebumps every time I hear this song.... that voice, melody, and memories from my youth. :)

    Yes I indeed. Didn't get the awards that they so much deserved, but still iconic to me always and forever.

    I remember the first time I heard this song back in the 80s & I first falling in love with her voice 💖💖💖
