Sometimes I live in the country,  Sometimes I live in town,  Sometimes I take a great notion  To jump in the river and drown

He needs me, he doesn’t know it, but he needs me And so no matter where he goes, though he doesn’t care, he knows that I’m there He needs me, I ought to leave him, but he needs me I know I ain’t very bright just to tag along, oh, but right or wrong, I’m his and I’m here

He needs me, he doesn’t know it, but he needs me
And so no matter where he goes, though he doesn’t care, he knows that I’m there
He needs me, I ought to leave him, but he needs me
I know I ain’t very bright just to tag along, oh, but right or wrong, I’m his and I’m here

Love laughs at a king. Kings don’t mean a thing on the street of dreams Dreams broken in two can be made like new on the street of dreams Gold, silver and gold, all you can hold is in the moonbeam Poor, no one is poor, long as love is sure on the street of dreams

Poor, no one is poor, long as love is sure on the street of dreams

All I know is I’m in love with you, even though you say that we are through I know without your love I just can’t go on, I wonder where our love has gone Always thought you’d love me more and more, never dreamed you’d ever let me go I know without your love I just can’t go on, I wonder where our love has gone

Always thought you’d love me more and more, never dreamed you’d ever let me go
I know without your love I just can’t go on, I wonder where our love has gone

 “Impressions

Impressions" is a jazz standard composed by John Coltrane. While Coltrane only recorded the composition once in the studio (on June 20, 1962), he recorded it many times live, beginning with his 1961 engagement at the Village Vanguard. At least a dozen further live performances exist on various live albums up to 1965 including this 1961 version at the annual Newport Jazz Festival which appears on the album The 1961 Newport Set.
