About Lamplight

"Lamplight" is a song by the Bee Gees, released as the B-side of "First of May", but featured as the single's A-side in Germany. It also featured on their double album Odessa in March 1969. The song was written and composed by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb and featured lead vocals by Robin Gibb. No other singles were released from the album, and the fact that the group's manager Robert Stigwood chose "First of May", which only featured Barry Gibb's voice for the A-side, that caused Robin to quit the group (he would return in 1970).

Alons, viens encore, cherie. 
J'attendrai patiemment sous la lampe dans la vieille avenue. 

Then I may end. 
She had things to buy. 
I close my eyes. 
Yet I don't know why. 
I gave her money, said she knew someone. 
And she said she won't be long. 

Lamplight keep on burning while this heart of mine is yearning. 
Lamplight keep on burning till this love of yours is mine. 

I sat alone with my thoughts and laughed. 
Then saw your face in an old photograph. 
I didn't think that I could live without you but what am I to do ? 

Lamplight keep on burning while this heart of mine is yearning. 
Lamplight keep on burning till this love of yours is mine 

Come home again dear. 
I have waited year after year 
Under the lamp in our old avenue. 
If all in the world that's laughing, why should it make us cry?

Bee Gees

The Bee Gees were a musical group founded in 1958. The group's line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a pop act in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s. The group sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognisable; Robin's clear vibrato lead was a hallmark of their earlier hits, while Barry's R&B falsetto became their signature sound during the late 1970s and 1980s. The brothers wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. more »
