Neil Diamond — Longfellow Serenade lyrics

Longfellow serenade
Written by: neil diamond

Longfellow serenade
Such were the plans I'd made
For she was a lady
And I was a dreamer
With only words to trade

You know that I was born for a night like this
Warmed by a stolen kiss
For I was lonely
And she was lonely

Ride, come on baby, ride
Let me make your dreams come true
Ill sing my song
Let me sing my song
Let me make it warm for you

Ill weave this web of rhyme
Upon this summer night
Well leave this worldly time
On his winged flight

Then come, and as we lay
Beside this sleepy glade
There I'll sing to you
My longfellow serenade

Longfellow serenade
Such were the plans I made
But she was a lady
As deep as the river
And through the night, we stayed

And in my way, I loved her as none before
Loved her with words and more
For she was lonely
And I was lonely

Ride, come on baby, ride
Let me make your dreams come true
Ill sing my song
Let me sing my song
Let me make it warm for you

Ill weave this web of rhyme
Upon this summer night
Well leave this worldly time
On his winged flight

Then come, and as we lay
Beside this sleepy glade
There I'll sing to you
My longfellow serenade
