Theme from "Middle of the Night"
1959 George Bassman, Chayefsky
From the Columbia movie Middle of the Night (Delbert Mann, 1959) with Kim Novak.

Recording sessions
1959: New York
Only the lonely love
Only the sad of soul
Wake and begin their day
In the middle of the night

To breakfast on their pride
Their joys and tears just ride
To breakfast with the moon
In the middle of the night

Then to count once more
My miserly hoard
Of your kisses
In this darkness restored

To grasp your raps in grace
In desperate embrace
To make your false heart true
Middle of the night oh oh oh

Then to count once more
My miserly hoard
Of your kisses
In this darkness restored

To grasp your raps in grace
In desperate embrace
To make your false heart true
Middle of the night the night
