Neil Diamond If I Don't See You Again Lyrics

Last updated: 06/23/2008 11:00:00 AM

If I don't see you again,
it was a hell of a ride.
Don't need to say let's be friends,
don't need to promise you'll write.
We rode that train through the night
and never cared where it went. If I don't see you again.

If I don't see you again,
we ran a whole other race.
Two strangers meet on the road
and find their time and their place.
We never once had to lie,
we pass the age of consent. If I don't see you again.

I know it's crazy out there.
I hated sleeping around.
I went out looking for love
and never liked what I found.
Don't pay to make it alone.
God knows it's lonely out there.
I made it once on my own,
and hardly anyone cared. If I don't see you again.

Who you gonna run to, baby?
Who you gonna hide behind
when the nights get suddenly cold?
Whose gonna hold you?
Whose gonna know? Who will you go to?

Who you gonna call if it ain't me?
When you feelin' lost
and there's nobody out there lookin' for you?
What will you do?
Where will you go? If I don't see you again?

If I don't see you again,
you made it happen somehow.
I think I gave up on life,
but I feel better right now.
Something you said turned me 'round.
Don't even know what you meant. If I don't see you again.

And at the end of the day,
I hated sleepin' alone.
There's nothing worse when you're lost,
and you don't want to go home.
It's gonna work out someway,
I just don't want to be found.
I'm waitin' here 'round the bend,
and I'll be hanging around. If I don't see you again.

Who am I kiddin,'
I'm going nowhere.
I can't even get through
an hour without you.
Should be ashamed,
just want to hear you, callin' my name.

Two of us missed connections.
Guess we must of somehow
missed something more.
'Cause we're here alone.
I know we're together.
But too far apart to know how to get back home.

It's time for sayin' good-bye
'cause if I stay for too long,
You'd get to know me too well
and find that something is wrong.
The time is perfect to go
before the curtain descends.
Right now when both of us know
that everything's got to end. If I don't see you again.

What's it gonna come to, baby?
Who you gonna hide behind
when the nights get filled up with doom?
Lookin' to run, you run out of room.

And will you be the one to save me?
Doesn't look like the future is clear and,
Need you to hear me
playin' a tune when nobody hears me,
I ended up playin' to the moon.

It's time for sayin' good-bye
'cause if I stay for too long,
You'd get to know me too well
and find that something was wrong.
The time is perfect to go
before the curtain descends,
Right now when both of us know
that everything's got to end. If I don't see you again.

If I don't see you again,
somehow we both made it through.
I woulda gave up on life
before I gave up on you.
You went and turned me around.
'Could be was something you said.
I couldn't make out the sound.
I didn't care what it meant.
If I don't see you again.
If I don't see you again. If I don't see you again.
