Day 138: “River Of Dreams” – Billy Joel

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Billy Joel had so far a really incredible career, a very wide and high quality production, playing several genres. Among his inspiration sources you may find classic and modern authors such as Beethoven or Elton John. Besides great composition skills, the America pianist has also a wonderful voice which seems to be born to give emotions.

Today’s song is part of the album also named River Of Dreams, 1993; in this live version you can feel the energy this man is able to give when he has a piano in his hands. And then the melody and the arrangement, with these gospel style choir, seem to express a very good mood .

Lyrics

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To the river so deep
I must be lookin’ for something
Something sacred I lost
But the river is wide
And it’s too hard to cross
even though I know the river is wide
I walk down every evening and stand on the shore
I try to cross to the opposite side
So I can finally find what I’ve been looking for
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear
To a river so deep
I’ve been searching for something
Taken out of my soul
Something I’d never lose
Something somebody stole
I don’t know why I go walking at night
But now I’m tired and I don’t want to walk anymore
I hope it doesn’t take the rest of my life
Until I find what it is I’ve been looking for
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt
To the river so deep
I know I’m searching for something
Something so undefined
That it can only be seen
By the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night

Im not sure about a life after this
God knows I’ve never been a spiritual man
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river
That is runnin’ to the promised land

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We’re all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
