Streisand, Barbra - I Have Dreamed / We Kiss In A Shadow / Something Wonderful Lyrics

We kiss in a shadow
We hide from the moon
Our meetings are few
And over too soon.

I have dreamed
That your arms
Are lovely...
I have dreamed
What a joy you'll be...
I have dreamed
Every word you whisper

We speak in a whisper
When you're close
Close to me.

Afraid to be heard...
Alone in our secret
Together we sigh
For one smiling day
To be free...

How you look
In the glow of evening

To kiss in the sunlight

I have dreamed
And enjoyed the view

And say to the sky

In these dreams
I've loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it's like to be loved by you

Behold and believe

I will love
Being loved by you

Behold how my lover loves me...

He will not always say
What you would have him say
But now and then he'll say
Something wonderful
The thoughtless things he'll do
Will hurt and worry you
Then all at once he'll do
Something wonderful
He has a thousand dreams
That won't come true
You know that he believes in them
And that's enough for you.
You'll always go along
Defend him when he's wrong
And tell him, when he's strong
He is Wonderful
He'll always need your love
And so he'll get your love-
A man who needs your love
Can be Wonderful!

  1. John Surabian

    !-!-! !

  2. Wade Kingston

    Superb in every way. No one wrote better music and lyrics than Rodgers and Hammerstein, and no female voice is more expressive than Streisand's. A match made in Heaven.

  3. Holly Drucker

    Another great songstress. ....Marvelous!

  4. Chris N

    One of the reasons this album was such a smash was that Barbra wasn't afraid to go for very contemporary arrangements behind her vocals. This, "Something's Coming," and "Somewhere," were so modern sounding as opposed to the traditional "Broadway" arrangements singers had favored in the past.

  5. JBlinky67

    "Our meetings are few, and over too soon." There is no better version of "I have dreamed". Making wishes for that future love.

  6. Maile O

    thank you Barbra and Endless Love!..I HAVE DREAMED...the stuff that True Love and Soul Mates are made of..Enough to make me fall in Love with everything in exquisite this version of all these tineless classics is.

  7. Janice Murphy

    One movie producers heard her singing and thought I bet you she could also act and be effective in acting and oh so right they were, it seems that when people have this much talent it spreads to other places in their personal being.

    Manuel Orozco

    I've seen Barbra in Funny Girl, Funny Lady, Hello Dolly, Meet the Fockers, What's Up Doc and the Guilt Trip

  8. john surabian

    Love Barbra!!!

    John Surabian

    ! I Love Her!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3

  9. Avi Greene

    Today is her birthday, and she is 76!

    Manuel Orozco

    Cool and she is still is so beautiful

  10. Robert Fairbrother

    Behold...and believe Painful, evocative, haunting. Magnificent.

  11. Manuel Orozco

    I remember this medley from the end credits of the animated movie! Beautiful job Ms. Streisand

    Avi Greene

    Originally, this track was recorded in 1985 on her Broadway album, but later it was used in the credits in 1999, because they bought rights to the OST.

    Manuel Orozco

    Avi Greene That’s Fair

  12. Grasmage

    Here's to Peter D., who had only wonderful things to say about Barbra's voice and stereo equipment. If I could do it again without the damned impetuousness of youth, we'd only have grown closer.

  13. Avi Greene

    You might find my opinion to be unusual, but I think the animated remake of "The King & I" is my favorite animated movie that Richard Rich has ever directed!

    Manuel Orozco

    Avi Greene I find that version to be on par with the 1956 movie with Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr. I can't resist happier endings

  14. Rafael Storm


  15. Towersla

    Barbra is simply "Something Wonderful".

  16. jean-claude schwartz

    It's from the King and i

    Manuel Orozco

    I'm seeing the national tour in a few weeks

  17. Daniel Buentello

    I remember the first time I heard this medley, it was really funny, I was on the subway and got goosebumps from the beginning, then all of a sudden (min 2:00) a tear in the eye... Dang...!!!! I must admit it, it is indeed a wonderful medley and interpretation from Barbra...

    Aeros Jesus

    +Daniel Buentello I think words make the melody to any song. This particular croons beauty.

  18. necktieguy1

    This beautiful medley, sung in the incredible style of Ms. Streisand, is haunting.  "Something Wonderful" is a tour de force.  Thank you for this post.  Thank you, Ms. Streisand.

  19. Suzanne Bush

    Once again Barbra makes a song her own! The result is wonderful!   :)

  20. Randi Kantor

    Barbara Streisand is so Stunning

  21. Debra Engle

    She is so incredible!

  22. BBBYpsi

    From a man's perspective. The song "something wonderful" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Maybe because Barbra Streisand is singing it. But combine both together & it is pure special magic.

  23. Kenneth Hamlett

    I think "Something Wonderful" is one of the most beautiful songs ever written, and Ms. Streisand gives it the exquisite performance it deserves.  One of the most remarkable things about the song to me is that it is a touching, sensitive expression of a woman's view of love.  But, the lyric was written by Oscar Hammerstein, Jr.  His ability to understand the mind of the female character in "The King and I" for whom the song was written -- and also create a lyric that has universal appeal -- is testament to his genius.  

  24. cmcoultrup

    I wish this medley could be made into a karaoke. It is beautifully done. Gotta love Streisand!

  25. Peter Polyak

    This arrangement by Bob Esty is amazing.What a beautiful combination of two amazing talents coming together!

    Avi Greene

    And what's more, this recording also combines three songs all from one iconic New York Broadway play!

    Manuel Orozco

    I love them. I saw the national tour of the King and I last March


    Thank you!!!!! I have been waiting for this!!!!! SO LONG

  27. necktieguy1

    The "Something Wonderful" part of the medley should be put in a museum for all to listen to--forever. Thanks for this post. It is so beautiful.

    Avi Greene

    I want my College Marching Band to play that song for a Football Halftime show! I'm not in the band myself, but I have a friend who is.

  28. Michel Montigny

    amazing barbra this is is a enchantement.........perfect.

  29. tomhbeatle1

    There are literally thousands of great female volcalists on this earth, I love many, many, of them, but right now you are listening to the pinnacle of them. There can only be a # 1.
    This is her. " Barbra Streisand" Tom...

    Philomena Whitehead

    I couldn't agree more.  I love this song and this is the best version of it.  Barbara Streisand is absolutely the greatest female vocalist ever.

  30. 781Florist

    You hear the stories about how Streisand is "difficult" or uber-demanding in her recording sessions, often requiring many many takes to get it "perfect". Then you hear magic and majesty like this and all you can do is thank God for this kind of talent and craftsmanship.
