Hello Again by Neil Diamond

What do you think?

I heard this at the funeral of a dear friend on 9/02/2011 in Iver. The words are so beautiful, it moved everyone to tears and was so poignant and fitting. It was played at the end before the coffin was taken out for the burial and there was not a dry eye in the house.

Lyrics

Hello
again hello

Just called to say: hello.
I couldn’t sleep at all tonight
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait.
Hello
my friend
hello

Just called to let you know
I think about you ev’ry night
When I’m here alone
And you’re there at home.
Hello.

May be it’s been crazy
And may be I’m to blame
But I put my heart above my head.
We’ve been through it all

And you loved me just the same
And when you’re not there
I just need to hear.
Hello
my friend
hello

It’s good to need you so
It’s good to love you like I do
And to feel this way
When I hear you say:

Hello my friend
hello.
Just called to let you know

I think about you ev’ry night
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait

Hello.

It’s good to need you so
It’s good to love you like I do
And to feel this way
When I hear you say:

Hello my friend
hello.
Just called to let you know

I think about you ev’ry night
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait

Hello.

when you’re not there
I just need to hear.
Hello
my friend
hello

It’s good to need you so

It’s good to love you like I do
And to feel this way
When I hear you say:
Hello
my friend
hello.
Just called to let you know

I think about you ev’ry night
And I know it’s late
But I couldn’t wait

Hello.
