Diamond, Neil - If I Never Knew Your Name Lyrics




You, get me feelin' crazy
There always on my mind
And I get to feelin' lately
If I never knew your name,
I'd love you all the same
But I have you to myself
Wanting nothing else
Knowing that you're mine

Good time,bad time,all the time
Hands reachin' 'cross a room
And I know somewhere inside my mind
If I never knew your name,
I'd love you all the same,
But I have you to myself
Wanting nothing else
Knowing that you're mine

Ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba

And I know somewhere inside my mind
If I never knew your name,
I'd love you all the same
But I have you to myself

Wanting nothing else
Knowing that you're mine
Have you to myself
Wanting nothing else
Knowing that you're mine...

  4. Cathy Borgmann

    Neil Diamond has always been a favorite of mine but I have to say the song "The Story of My Life" touches my heart so deeply. It definitely speaks to the kind of man he is and would be any woman's dream come true. My memory is starting to fail me but I hope I can always remember, enjoy and understand Neil Diamond "the singer" and Neil Diamond "the man"

    I just heard this song with passionate and romantic lyrics for the first time. It is composed and sung so well by the ‘iconic’ Neil Diamond. Thank you ‘mig qcoen’ for posting the lyrics! The photos are just so beautiful, so majestic, ‘Lisa palacol’. They add to the listening pleasure. I watch this video every day. UTube brings me so much pleasure. 🥰👍

    This guy could Sing a telephone directory and make it sound great genius.

    Rachel Rodgers

    Or even a Dictionary, or Bible, or any book for that matter. He has a very versatile voice that lends itself well in any kind of music.

  29. Michael Kedor

    What a great song for Neil to do. I've always liked this song and then to hear Neil's version, OK. I guess that's why I've always liked Neil Diamond and hey let's face it the early 70's was a time of great change in pop music or music in general. Neil was no exception. "If I Never New Your name" OK.

  30. carmela becerra paco

    Wawwwwww, maravilloso , que bonito y la naturaleza ...... sin palabras , me encanta .

  31. Nadia Nadezhda

    "Wanting nothing else

    Vic Dana did this song first, (I prefer it) I bought the 45 when it came out in the 60's, I use to love it and still do, it was a hit then but you'd never know it, throughout all these years they never played it!

  38. Carolyn Darling

    Lovely song!

  39. bluenote824 jones

    Love it

  40. James Sullivan

    Didn't know who this was the first time I heard it, but loved him, all the same. And no, I am not gay.

  41. Gianni Spatocco

    those High Notes!!

  42. Anita Huie

  45. Ruby Sein

    Truly one of the greatest musicians/song-writers of our time!

  60. susana bernardis

  61. Rm M

  69. chasjohn57

    I know it's Neil's song, but I really like Vic Dana's rendition better.

    Peter AIken

    Please!!!!!

  70. R Paz

    Another gem produced from the American studio sessions.

  71. Rudolf Trost

    I've got this on vinyl and am still glad to be able and listen to this early Diamond gem. This, by the way was before Neil took singing coaching. It was pure and sounded honest none-the less...

    Michael Daniels

    @Rudolf Trost actually he only took a few lessons as he was told by someone and also was afraid himself he would lose what elllie greenich and jeff barry liked about his natural manner.

    Vivek Gautam

    Rudolf Trost agree

  72. Martin De Wilde

    nice melody... nice song... great composition...nice arrangement... lovely performance... bella cansion... bella canzone... magnifique chanson... mooi... schön... bellissimo... baie mooj...

  73. Cathie Novak

    Loved it!

  74. Jack Owens

    Have always thought this was one of Neil's better songs that never received the attention it deserves. Thanks for posting.

    Danny Rees

    Jack Owens Too Right Mate.👍

    Jackie Mcmeekin

    So true! I just heard this song recently. The lyrics are passionate, romantic. The melody is lovely. I listen to it every day now. 🥰

  75. Nam Water

    I love this song.

  76. Gloria De Bon

    Quanto è bella questa canzone!!!!

  77. 4evermore12

    Mine too!

  78. NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    A labor of love, no less. Beautiful.

  79. m daniels

    check out vic dana's cover

  80. m daniels

    great early diamond song..always a favorite of mine..

  81. L Morales

    "I never knew her name", is one of the most mysterious and captivating Neil Diamond songs. When I heard it for the first time some weeks ago, I was completely surprised of Neil singing baritone. Weeks later this song is still on my mind and popped up again and again. Nice job, Neil, You are really the bom. Glad I could hold your hand for some seconds in Ahoy, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, on 11-June 2011. A Precious gift fo me. The Caribbean lady that wanted to take a picture so badly with you!
