"Lamp at Midnight" as written by and Corey Hart....
You take my heart like a bow and arrow
Shoot it at me, I know
I walk a tightrope when it's narrow
To earn my degree, I know
Now I'm the last boy at the playground
Who's laughing 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
But I know you're not the talking kind

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

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 Wight, 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 midnight
Said I really want to know you
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnight
And to really understand me
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnight, night, night, night

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 midnight
Said I really want to know you
(Oh, you know)
Burn a lamp at midnight

And to really understand me, oh you know
Burn a lamp at midnight
I said I really want to know you, oh you know
Burn a lamp at midnite yeah
