Lyrics

Tonight I close my eyes
And I start wishing you were here;
And even though you’re not around,
The vision is so clear—

Of all the nights spent dreamin',
Of warmer days gone by;
Of sunlit colors beamin'
A miracle across the sky.

But dreams that never come true
Aren’t always dreams that die;

You became someone I didn’t know,
While I became cavalier.

Now in my heart it’s true:
I still see you
Every time I stop and close my eyes;

I can hear the music play,
And I remember—

I can hear it,
I just can’t play it anymore.
Maybe I can improvise . . .

The sun, the moon, December, June,
The years go on, the same old tune
Resounding somewhere far away
From any hall I knew.

There was a time when I could play it,
And voices sang for free;
A symphony of plaudits—
Aristocrat and bourgeoisie.

These dreams I live my life through--
They ease my pain;
I don’t know how to reach you—
I keep calling out your name.

I know in my heart it’s true:
I still see you
Every time I stop and close my eyes;

I can hear the music play
And I remember--

I can hear it,
I just can’t play it anymore.
Maybe I can improvise . . .

It’s true:
I still see you
Every time I stop and close my eyes;

I can hear the music play
And I remember—

I can hear it,
I just can’t play it anymore.

Maybe I can improvise . . .
