If You Know What I Mean Lyrics - Neil Diamond



Review The Song (1)


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

My fave N.D. tune | Reviewer: Flank Zappath | 8/5/2008

In the dreary Winter of '76 when I was in fifth grade fighting rampant exema, it was a good time to have a dark, brooding hit in the top 40. Elton John's prog-rock ballad "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", Eric Carmen's Rachmaninov-drenched tear-jerker "All By Myself", and this beautiful ode to bittersweet nostalgia by the old master Neil Diamond. Neil was pushing forty when "Beautiful Noise" was written and recorded, and this song may have been a sort of pensive, valedictory recollection statement of a career that had already spanned two decades. Whatever your interperetation, gotta' admit this one's a keeper!
