Did You Know? Play Me was the first single from Neil Diamond's 1972 album Moods. it was also the first time Neil collaborated with his long term guitar player Richard Bennett who played the arpeggiated chords in the song.

Play Me Lyrics


She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said "come take me"
For I've been lonely in need of someone
As I've done someone wrong somewhere
But I don't know where, I don't know where
Come lately


You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me


Songs she sang to me songs she bring to me
Words that rang in me rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me


You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me


And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thrones and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me


You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune

Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune 

Play me
