Neil Diamond - Songs Of Life Lyrics

Songs of life, they ring
From quiet steeples to distant valleys
Along the hillsides of lovers' hearts
Of lovers' hearts

Come sing you songs of life
And they will keep you
From ever wanting, from ever needing
For ever more, for ever more

Oh, and when the moment's true
It sings so softly to me and you
You know it's true

So I sing my songs of life
That I will hold you inside forever
And you will know me
And I'll be yours and you'll be mine

Oh, and when the moments true
They sing so softly to me and you
You know they do, you know they do

And I'll sing my songs life
That I may hold you, inside forever
And you will know me,
And I'll be yours and you'll be mine

  29. Gary Benedict

    "Songs Of Life" has to be my all-time favorite from The Jazz Singer. A close second is "Hello Again", mostly because he's singing it to the beautiful and mega-talented Lucie Arnaz. My name is GARY BENEDICT and I approved this message! ([email protected])

    Funny story about this movie in general and this song in particular.
    I was a senior in high school and had a crappy job as a busboy at a restaurant where the co-workers and managers were assholes at best. There was also a lot of family tension at home that week and high school sucked that semester. All of this came to a head one week and I needed to get out of the house late on a Friday night. The problem was the POS car I was driving had a dead battery. We had a spare in the garage so I switched batteries, hopped in the car to go see a midnight show. But at the local theater, this was the only movie showing and I wasn't a big Neil Diamond fan. Any port in a storm, I reasoned, so I bought a ticket and went inside. I was surprised by how much I liked the movie and the music. This scene along with the song fit in with how I felt that night. Things sucked in my life and I wished I would have had the guts to just take off and leave my suck assed life behind like Neil did in the movie(Gimme a break, I was a teenager). By the time the movie had ended at 2AM, I was felling better about things. I just needed a night to unwind.
    After the movie, though, I went to start my car and discovered that I had left the headlights on. When I turned the key, all I heard was CLICK! Now, 2AM was NOT the time to call home and holler for help about a dead battery. Not with my dad and the BS going on in my family back then. Especially since I was wayyy out past curfew with a car I took without permission. I popped the hood to see if there was anything I could do to get it started. It was then that i discovered that there was a God after all and he REALLY cared about a four eyed social outcast. You see the battery I put in the car was one of those side post batteries that screwed into place. In my rush to get out of the house, I didn't tighten the nut all the way and it had popped out when I shut the car off earlier once I got to the theater. That prevented the battery from being drained. All I had to do was reconnect the cable(Which I did) and start the car(Which it did). I got home safe and the parents were non the wiser(Songs Of Life, indeed. My dad didn't kill me because I had to get him out of bed that night).
    After that, things gradually improved in my life for awhile. I did sacrifice a graduation party in order to keep the peace in the family(Small price to pay for domestic tranquility). But the family stayed together and that night I finally believed in miracles because I know of no other instance where two mistakes on my part actually combined to keep me from a very unpleasant experience. Its was like adding two negative numbers and getting a positive resul.
    And let me say that my father(RIP) was a very good father. A lot of the family issues were the result of his quitting smoking.

    Great story! I took the time to read it thru...& YES you better believe there's A GOD! He'll show up when you need it most & expect it least. The pure emotional "power" of music on the heart & mind didn't hurt either, good luck & GOD BLESS!

    Layla Adair

    This was like reading a book......Super great ending mostly.

    Beautiful song. He should have been at least nominated for an Oscar for best soundtrack. Wonderful music throughout the movie, which was ans is awesome. Thank you Neil for ur beautiful talent and voice.

  70. Linda Cap

    It's sad when we just can't be.Were a;ll born with authentic gifts and personalities.BUT someone in our family or outside our relations tries to tell us that the know what's best for us.

    ONLY we can know what's best and I'll tell you a true story.My brother was in Laurentian University in the late 70's.He got to know a brilliant scientific student called Gary.Now Garys father was dead and his mother always wanted Gary to be a scientist.She would brag to the ladies at the auxillary that Gary would soon have his degree.

    But Gary's life was changed by a short school trip on a Grey Coach Bus.The smell of the diesel and the uniform made him lay in bed dreaming about doing that.His mom would not listen to his stupid dream so when he graduated University at the top of his class and then......he.....gave his Degree to his mom and he signed up as a scientist that drives the open roads with a smile and the smell of diesel going down the road.

  71. Sudip Bose
