Shilo Lyrics - Neil Diamond

Review The Song (1)



Young child with dreams
Dream, ev'ry dream on your own
When children play
Seems like you end up alone

Papa says he'd love to be with you
If he had the time
So you turn to the only friend you can find
There in your mind

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
And we'd play

Couting the years
keeping my dreams to myself
┬┤til the young girl with fire
sponsored links
made me trust somebody else

Held my hand out, I let her take me
Blind as a child
All I saw was the way that she made me smile
She made me smile

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
But you'd stay

Had a dream, and it filled me with wonder
She had other plans
"Got to go," says, "she knows that I understand"
I understand

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
Come today

Had a dream, and it filled me with wonder
She had other plans
"Got to go," says, "she knows that I understand"
I understand

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
Come today

His best song | Reviewer: Bear | 4/20/13

I've always thought that this was Neil Diamond's most underrated song and it affected me deeply when it came out. Funny though, the second verse listed here has the lyrics from the single, but the album version appears to have lyrics a bit different. I like the single version (1969) better.
