Song Lyrics - Hello Again

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 every night
When I'm here alone
And you're there at home

Maybe it's been crazy
And maybe 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 every night
And I know it's late
But I couldn't wait

The Jazz Singer 25th Anniversary Edition DVD

OK...so Neil Diamond is a better singer than he is an actor.  Interestingly this doesn't really inhibit this story of  the son of a young Jewish cantor striving to make a career in the music industry. Perhaps in part to the power and presence of Sir Laurence Olivier as his rigid father, the movie will hold you all the way to the end
