Bruce Hornsby – Till The Dreaming's Done lyrics

B. r. hornsby

Well I saw her one day
At the corner cafe
Everybody there knew she's a wonder
I sat there all night
Too shy to say
Honey you could keep me from going under

Oh my my when she walks on by
It's hard not to get lost in the view
How can you know if the feelings a lie
When love comes out of the blue

North, south, east, west
Up, down, all around and all the rest
I'll go anywhere she wants me to go
Of all the girls I've loved she's the best
(she's the one)
Till the dreaming's done

Well I left in the springtime long, long ago
Funny but I never got to know her
Some people tell me she stayed alone
And if things were different
I'd go and show her

But oh my my when she walks on by
It's hard not to get lost in the view
How can you know if it's truth or a lie
When love comes out of the blue

North, south, east, west
Uptown, downbound, and all the rest
I'll go anywhere she wants me to go
Of all the girls I've loved she's the best
(she's the one)
Till the dreaming's done


Oh my my when she walks on by
It's hard not to get lost in the view
How can you know if the feelings a lie
When love comes out of the blue

North, south, east, west
Uptown, downtown and all the rest
I'll go anywhere she wants me to go
Of all the girls I've loved she's the best
She's the one

    I've always loved this song from the day I first heard it. To me, this is the quintessential song about the love of your life that due to whatever timing and or circumstances, you were never able to express your feelings or connect and get together. I had exactly the situation this song describes. There was a girl I met long, long ago and I instantly knew she was "the one". She was everything in one package: beauty, class, intelligence, family oriented and great sense of humor. But life got in the way; she went one direction and I went another. We tried to stay in touch but lost contact and subsequently, and respectively, met and married other people. 30 years later, we found each other through social media. She is now alone but I am still married. My heart absolutely aches for her and as the lyrics say “if things were different I’d go and show her…” Alas, things are what they are and I will have to love her quietly, secretly (“in my mind”) from afar… This song captures that slice of my life as if it was written just for me.
