Neil Diamond - Melody Road Lyrics






Melody Road

Melody road I'm on with you
All the way to the end
I know every song you lead me to
Is gonna be my friend
Melody road I play all night
Take my guitar and strum
Find me some words that feel just right
The music's gonna come from Melody Road

Melody from the heart,
Melody from the start,
Telling things will be okay
I think that I just might stay
On Melody Road

Melody Road, let's go a mile
I'll tie on my rambling shoes
Write me a song to make you smile
There's no need to sing the blues,
On Melody Road

Melodies that unfold,
Melodies made of gold,
Making up songs along the way
I'm thinking I just might stay
On Melody Road

Ringing out like a bell
Singing out I can tell
I'm not alone
Melody Road it's you and me
Floating out on a dream
I love every song that comes to me
'Cause I know it comes to be
On Melody Road, Melody Road
Melody road, Melody Road
Melody Road!

First Time

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
First time
How do you feel?
Little bit strange it's little unreal that
First time
You're far from home
Finally out there on your own and it's
Your time
For making it happen
It's your time, and it's gonna happen your way
Every step you take from now on,
Be taken as far as you can
You oughta be moving along
Singing your song, and making your plans
First time, first time

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
First time
Like a Ferris wheel
Scared to go, but it's no big deal that
First time
It's always the best
Remember it's still you forget all the rest it's
Your time
So live in the moment
It's your time, you don't want to throw it away!
Still remember the first word you wrote
And every single note that you've played!
Got a book and you learned it by road
Long time ago, remember that day?
Make rhyme
So fine
First time!

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
First time
It comes unaware,
You're un-rehearsed, and unprepared for that
First time, you're free and unbound
No planet's safe gotta jump on the sound it's
Your time
And good things will happen
But this time, you gotta put your heart in the game!
You're out for the very first time,
But you're not really out there alone
Keep doing it, and words gonna spread
Get out of your bed, set out on your own.
Keep trying
Be fine
First time!
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh

This time
The whole world is watching
This time, you better put your heart in the game!
You're rocking for the very first time
You only want the feeling to last,
And every single ? Going out
Leaves less of a doubt, it's all in the past!
This time
You shine
You're flyin'
First time

In Better Days

How do I just forget that you were a part of me?
How do I leave behind everything we knew?
Looking inside of myself, where my heart would be
And all I see is you there too

Two of us goin' around in a state of denial, girl
Neither believin' the way it all came down
Didn't count much lost in paying the cost for a while, girl
Then this old world stopped spinning 'round

In better days we had it all
In better days when love came easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much there was when I had you
In better days, in better days

I remember a time there wasn't a dime between us two
We lived in a little old place on the side of a hill
Gave it our best in love, did the rest for me and you
Too young to lose, too hot to chill

In better days we had it all
In better days when love came easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much I lost when I lost you
In better days, in better days

Why do we promise forever and never stay that long?
Why do we swear to care until we die?
And what does it mean when two lovers sing loving songs
Then move along, and not know why

In better days we had it all
In better days when love was easy
We had it all but I never knew
How much there was between me and you
In better days, back in better days
In better days, way back in better days

(Ooo) Do I Wanna Be Yours

I had a dream we were out on a meadow
Just you and me lyin' out in the sun
I knew that somebody would soon come to get you
Was hopin' that maybe I could be the one

Baby, ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
And all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

I dreamed you were waitin' somewhere on the station
Were hopin' that maybe the right train would come
I heard myself startin' a conversation
And sayin' your waitin' was finally done

Told you, ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
Now all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

I dreamed you were sittin' up there at your window
Lookin' at me with a strange kind of smile
I knew that you'd take me where I'd never been to
Was hopin' you'd ask me to stay for a while

Sayin', ooo, do I wanna be
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Knew that I wanna be
Like I never knew it before
And now everywhere I go
I go havin' you on my mind
Now all I wanna know
Is ooo, do you wanna be mine
Because
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
For sure
Ooo, do I wanna be yours
Of course
Ooo, do I wanna be yours

Alone At The Ball

Need a life with a set of directions
Get it right with a few small corrections
Find a groove, you just got to stay with it
Got to move, it's your life got to live it

Spirit down, look around
There's a cold wind a-blowin'
Being strong's what you long for
But you've got to show it
You're too vain to complain and ashamed
No one knows you at all

And you're alone at the ball
You're all alone at the ball

Got a car
Cadillac
El Dorado
Take it far, up to high Colorado
Got to move, it's your life got to live it
Find a groove then you got to stay with it

Hey this life's all about striking out taking chances
What's the point of it all if you call no one answers
Spend your time make rhyme
Just to find no one dancing at all

Then you're alone at the ball
You're all alone at the ball

Sing your song move along
'Cause the future awaits you
Free your brain from the chains
That remain to enslave you
Took your hits kept your wits
Never flinched stayed yourself through it all

Now you're alone at the ball
You're all alone at the ball
All alone, at the ball
You're all alone
Alone at the ball
You're all alone
Alone at the ball

Sunny Disposition

She had a sunny disposition
He had a cloud that never went away
She woke up singing almost every day
It turned him all around
And brought him in from the pouring rain

She had a sunny way of talking
And when she finished she'd always smile
It wasn't flashy but she had style
She touched him so profound
That he was never to be the same

First she had him walking
Then he'd be talking
Walking and talking
And soon he'd be laughing out loud

Never would believe it
If you couldn't see it
She came to be someone that he could not be without

They made a sunny combination
You wouldn't think so but it was true
They heard a voice coming from the blue
True love was calling out
And it was calling them both by name

Started with a whisper
Pretty soon he kissed her
That's when that whisper
Turn into a mighty roar

More than just affection
Made a real connection
That's when he knew she was what he was missing before

She gave him plenty inspiration
And every song he wrote from then til now
Had something about it explaining how
She turned his life around

Before her sunny disposition
He didn't know where he was going
She had a funny way of knowing
And knowing felt so right
When she became his wife
She brought her disposition

Marry Me Now

We don't believe in breaking up
We do believe in making up
That's all we really have to know
To make it so, it's official

Yesterday is here and gone
Tomorrow's where we both belong
Today's the day to make that change
And rearrange your initials

Marry me now
Say that I do
Don't wait around
You know I'm gonna be true
I'll give you my life
It's all that I got
I love you, believe it or not

Got so much celebrate
So why do we even hesitate
We've got the time, let's make the date
'Cause ain't life great, together

Married's not an easy thing
But look at all the joy it brings
And you and me can't be afraid
'Cause each day's made to treasure

Marry me now
Say that I do
Don't wait around
You know I'm gonna be true
I'll give you my life
It's all that I got
I love you, believe it or not

You know I'm gonna be true

Melody Road is Neil Diamond's 32nd studio album, and first album of original music recorded since 2008's well-received Home Before Dark, which debuted on the US album charts at #1. It was produced by Don Was and Jacknife Lee.

After 40 years recording solo for Columbia (Capitol had released Diamond's 1980 soundtrack album for The Jazz Singer.), Diamond signed with Capitol Records in early 2014. At the same time, his back catalogue was moved to Universal Music Group, Capitol's parent company.

On September 8, 2014, six of the tracks from Melody Road were premiered at the Capitol Records studios in Hollywood, CA at a listening party for a small group of music industry executives and journalists. Following the event, Billboard wrote that the album is "rich in orchestration that retains the dark rustic qualities of his last two studio albums of original material, 12 Songs and Home Before Dark." Of the songs, the article stated that "'Something Blue', the most commercial of the songs played Monday, has the classic Diamond mid-tempo lilt; the ballads 'The Art of Love' and '(Ooo) Do I Wanna Be Yours' offer springboards for Diamond's still-potent voice; and 'Seongah and Jimmy' is an eyewitness account of a romance between a woman from Korea and a man from Long Island." The Wall Street Journal wrote that "The Art of Love" is a "tender offering from Diamond, who at age 73, hasn't lost that ability to convey a wide swath of emotions in just four minutes."

In September, three videos from the album were released. A lyric video for "The Art of Love" debuted on Diamond's YouTube/VEVO channel, and the video for the album's first single, "Something Blue", premiered on Yahoo! Music. Rolling Stone debuted the video for "Nothing But a Heartache".
