Neil Diamond - If you know what I mean
Tekst en muziek: Neil Diamond
(1976)






When the night returns just like a friend
When the evening comes to set me free
When the quiet hours that wait beyond the day
Make peaceful sounds in me



Took a drag from my last cigarette
Took a drink from a glass of old wine
Closed my eyes and I could make it real
And feel it one more time



Can you hear it, babe
Can you hear it, babe
From another time
From another place
Do you remember it, babe



And the radio played like a carnival tune
As we lay in our bed in the other room
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
If you know what I mean, baby



And here’s to the songs we used to sing
And here’s to the times we used to know
It’s hard to hold them in our arms again
But hard to let them go



Do you hear it, babe
Do you hear it, babe
It was another time
It was another place
Do you remember it, babe



And the radio played like a carnival tune
As we lay in our bed in the other room
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
If you know what I mean



If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean, baby
If you know what I mean
