Wiki on Neil_Diamond

Neil Diamond – I am I said

LA’s fine, sunshine most of the time
The feeling is laid back
Palm trees grow and the rents are low
But you know I keep thinking about
Making my way back

Well, I’m New York City born and raised
But nowadays, I’m lost between two shores
LA’s fine, but it ain’t home
New York’s home but it ain’t mine no more

I am, I said
To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair
I am, I cried
I am, said I
And I am lost, and I can’t even say why
Leavin’ me lonely still

Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king
And then became one
Well, except for the names and a few other changes
If you talk about me, the story’s the same one

But I got an emptiness deep inside
And I’ve tried but it won’t let me go
And I’m not a man who likes to swear
But I’ve never cared for the sound of being alone

I am, I said
To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair
I am, I cried
I am, said I
And I am lost, and I can’t even say why

I am, I said
I am, I cried
I am…

 

 

Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline

 Where it began

I can’t begin to knowin’

but then I know it’s growin’ strong.
Was in the spring

then spring became the summer.
Who’da believed you’d come along ?
Hands
touchin’ hands

reachin’ out

touchin’ me
touchin’ you.

Sweet Caroline

good times never seemed so good.
I’ve been inclined
to believe they never would.
But now I –

Look at the night
and it don’t seem so lonely

we fill it up with only two.
And when I hurt

hurtin’ runs off my shoulders

how can I hurt when holdin’ you ?
Warm
touchin’ warm

reachin’ out

touchin’ me
touchin’ you.

Sweet Caroline

good times never seemed so good.
I’ve been inclined
to believe they never would.
Oh
no
no.

 

song sung blue – neil diamond

Song sung blue
Everybody knows one
Song sung blue
Every garden grows one

Me and you are subject to the blues now and then
But when you take the blues and make a song
You sing them out again
Sing them out again

Song sung blue
Weeping like a willow
Song sung blue
Sleeping on my pillow

Funny thing, but you can sing it with a cry in your voice
And before you know, start to feeling good
You simply got no choice

[break]

Me and you are subject to the blues now and then
But when you take the blues and make a song
You sing them out again

Song sung blue
Everybody knows one
Song sung blue
Every garden grows one

Funny thing, but you can sing it with a cry in your voice
And before you know, start to feeling good

 

====================

Neil Diamond – Love On The Rocks

Love on the rocks
Ain’t no surprise
Pour me a drink
And I’ll tell you some lies
Got nothin’ to lose
So you just sing the blues all the time
Gave you my heart
Gave you my soul
You left me alone here
With nothing to hold
Yesterday’s gone
Now all I want is a smile

First, they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you’re out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You’ve got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

You need what you need
You can say what you want
Not much you can do
When the feeling is gone
May be blue skies above
But it’s cold when you love’s on the rocks

First, they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you’re out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You’ve got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

 

 Neil Diamond – Hello Again (The Jazz Singer Theme)

Hello
again hello

Just called to say: hello.
I couldn’t sleep at all tonight
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait.
Hello
my friend
hello

Just called to let you know

I think about you ev’ry night
When I’m here alone
And you’re there at home.
Hello.
May be it’s been crazy

And may be I’m to blame

But I put my heart above my head.
We’ve been through it all

And you loved me just the same

And when you’re not there
I just need to hear.
Hello
my friend
hello

It’s good to need you so

It’s good to love you like I do
And to feel this way
When I hear you say:
Hello
my friend
hello.
Just called to let you know

I think about you ev’ry night
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait

 

 

Neil Diamond He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother

The road is long with many awaiting turns
That lead us to who knows where,
who knows where
But I’m strong,
strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So long we go
His welfare is my concern
No burden is he to bare, we’ll get there

For I know
he would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If Im laden at all,
I I am laden with sadness that
everyone’s heart isn’t filled with the gladness
I am alone for one and other

It’s so long long road
From there is no return
while we’re on the way to live why not share

And the load doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy , he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy
He’s my brother
He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy
He’s my brother

 

 

Neil Diamond – Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon (1972)

I love you so much, can’t count all the ways
I’d die for you girl, and all they can say is
“He’s not your kind”
They never get tired of puttin’ me down
And I never know when I come around
What I’m gonna find
Don’t let them make up your mind
Don’t you know

Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon you’ll need a man

I’ve been misunderstood for all of my life
But what they’re sayin’, girl, just cuts like a knife
“The guy’s no good”
Well, I finally found what I’ve been looking for
But if they get the chance, they’ll end it for sure
Sure they would
Baby, I’ve done all I could
Now it’s up to you

Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon you’ll need a man

Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon, but soon you’ll need a man

 

 

Neil Diamond – Solitary Man live 1971

 

 

Neil Diamond – Solitary Man (Best Quality Sound&Photo)

Melinda was mine
‘Til the time
That I found her
Holding Jim
Loving Him
Then Sue came along
Loved me strong
That’s what I thought
Me and Sue
But that died too

Don’t know that I will
But until I can find me
The girl who’ll stay
And won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

I’ve had it to here
Bein’ where
Love’s a small word
Part-time thing
Paper ring

I know it’s been done
Havin’ one
Girl who’ll love me
Right or wrong
Weak or strong

Don’t know that I will
But until I can find me
The girl who’ll stay
And won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

 

 

Neil Diamond – Cracklin’ Rosie – Original (High Quality)

Cracklin’ Rosie, get on board
We’re gonna ride till there ain’t no more to go
Taking it slow
Lord, don’t you know
Have me a time with a poor man’s lady
Hitchin’ on a twilight train
Ain’t nothing there that I care to take along
Maybe a song
To sing when I want
Don’t need to say please to no man for a happy tune

Oh, I love my Rosie child
She got the way to make me happy
You and me, we go in style
Cracklin’ Rosie you’re a store-bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin’ on

Play it now
Play it now
Play it now, my baby

Cracklin’ Rosie, make me a smile
God if it lasts for an hour, that’s all right
We got all night
To set the world right
Find us a dream that don’t asks no questions, yeah

Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me, we go in style
Cracklin’ Rosie, you’re a store-bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin’ on

Play it now
Play it now
Play it now, my baby

Cracklin’ Rosie, make me a smile
God if it lasts for an hour, that’s all right
We got all night
To set the world right
Find us a dream that don’t asks no questions, yeah

Neil Diamond – Beautiful Noise

What a beautiful noise
Comin’ up from the street
Got a beautiful sound
It’s got a beautiful beat

It’s a beautiful noise
Goin’ on everywhere
Like the clickety-clack
Of a train on a track
It’s got a rhytm to spare

It’s a beautiful noise
And it’s a sound that I love
And it fits me as well
As a hand in a glove
Yes it does, yes it does

What a beautiful noise
Comin’ up from the park
It’s the song of this kids
And it plays until dark

It’s the song of the cars
On their furious flights
But there’s even romance
In the way that they dance
To the beat of the lights

It’s a beautiful noise
And it’s a sound that I love
And ist makes me feel good
Like a hand in a glove
Yes it does, yes it does
What a beautiful noise

It’s a beautiful noise
Made of joy and of strife
Like a symphony played
By the passing parade
It’s the music of life

What a beautiful noise
Comin’ into my room
And it’s beggin’ for me
Just to give it a tune

 

 

Neil Diamond – Coming to America

Far, we’ve been traveling far
Without a home
Not without a stars
Free, only want to be free
We huddle close, hang on to a dream
On the boats and on the plans
They’re coming to America
Never looking back again
They’re coming to America

Home, don’t it seem so far away
We’re traveling light today
In the eyes of the storm
In the eyes of the storm
Home, it’s a new and shinning place
Make our bed and we’ll say our grace
Freedom’s light burning warm
Freedom’s light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Everytime that flags unfurled
They’re coming to America
Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they come to share
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America…
Today, today, today…
My country ’tis of thee we, today
Sweet land of liberty, today
Of thee I sing, today
Of thee I sing, today..

 

 

september morn * neil diamond

Written by: neil diamond and gilbert becaud

Stay for just a while
Stay, and let me look at you
It?s been so long, I hardly knew you
Standing in the door
Stay with me a while
I only want to talk to you
We?ve traveled halfway ?round the world
To find ourselves again

September morn
We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

Look at what you?ve done
Why, you?ve become a grown-up girl
I still can hear you cryin?
In the corner of your room
And look how far we?ve come
So far from where we used to be
But not so far that we?ve forgotten
How it was before

September morn
Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

 

 

Barbra Streisand & Neil Diamond – You Don’t Bring Me Flowers

(Duet with Brabra Streisand) Written by: Neil Diamond, Alan Bergman and Marilyn
Bergman

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When you come thru the door
At the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin’ me late at night
When it’s good for you
And you’re feelin’ alright
Well you just roll over
And turn out the light
And you don’t bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But “used to be’s” don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor
‘Til we sweep them away

And baby, I remember
All the things you taught me
I learned how to laugh
And I learned how to cry
Well I leared how to love
And I learned how to lie
Well you’d think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye
And yYou don’t bring me flowers anymore

Well you’d think I could learn
how to tell you ‘goodbye’
You don’t say you need me
You don’t sing me love songs
You don’t bring me flowers anymore

 

 

neil diamond red red wine

Written by: neil diamond

Red, red wine
Go to my head
Make me forget that i
Still need her so

Red, red wine
It?s up to you
All I can do, I?ve done
But memories won?t go
No, memories won?t go

I?d have sworn
That with time
Thoughts of you
Would leave my head
I was wrong
And I find
Just one thing
Makes me forget

Red, red wine
Stay close to me
Don?t let me be alone
It?s tearing apart
My blue, blue heart

 

 Neil Diamond – Forever in Blue Jeans

Money talks

but it don’t sing and dance and it don’t walk.
And long as I can have you here with me

I’d much rather be
forever in blue jeans.

Honey’s sweet.
But it ain’t nothing next to baby’s treat.
And if you pardon me

I’d like to say we’ll do okay

forever in blue jeans.

Maybe tonight

maybe tonight
by the fire all alone you and I;
nothing around but the sound of my heart and your sighs.

Money talks.
But it can’t sing and dance and it can’t walk.
And long as I can have you here with me

I’d much rather be
forever in blue jeans
babe.

And honey’s sweet.
But it ain’t nothing next to baby’s treat.
And if you pardon me

I’d like to say we’ll do okay

forever in blue jeans.

Maybe tonight

maybe tonight
by the fire all alone you and I;
nothing around but the sound of my heart and your sighs.

And money talks.
But it don’t sing and dance and it don’t walk.
And long as I can have you here with me

I’d much rather be
forever in blue jeans.

And long as I can have you here with me

I’d much rather be
forever in blue jeans
babe.
