"The River of Dreams" is a song by American musician Billy Joel. It is the title track and first single from his 1993 album River of Dreams. The song was a hit, peaking at number 3 on the United States and UK charts, making it Joel"s highest charting of the 1990s (River of Dreams was the only album he released during the 1990s). It also hit the top spot in Australia, New Zealand, and on the Canadian and US Adult Contemporary charts. The song was produced by Joe Nicolo and Danny Kortchmar. At least four versions of the song have been recorded and released. Two versions (released years later) include a bridge section containing a piano interlude paralleling Joel"s melody from his song "Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)," which is from the same album. These versions can be found on the boxed sets My Lives and Complete Hits Collection: 1973–1999 – but even these versions differ from each other, both in length and in arrangement: one, for instance, has more percussion. A fourth mix appears as a bonus cut on the UK CD single of "River of Dreams" — the "percapella mix" done by Nicolo.more »

In the middle of the nightI go walking in my sleepFrom the mountains of faithTo the river so deepI must be looking for somethingSomething sacred I lostBut the river is wideAnd it"s too hard to crossEven though I know the river is wideI walk down every evening and I stand on the shoreI try to cross to the opposite sideSo I can finally find out what I"ve been looking forIn the middle of the nightI go walking in my sleepThrough the valley of fearTo a river so deepI"ve been searching for somethingTaken out of my soulSomething I"d never loseSomething somebody stoleI don"t know why I go walking at nightBut now I"m tired and I don"t want to walk anymoreI hope it doesn"t take the rest of my lifeUntil I find what it is that I"ve been looking forIn the middle of the nightI go walking in my sleepThrough the jungle of doubtTo a river so deepI know I"m searching for somethingSomething so undefinedThat it can only be seenBy the eyes of the blindIn the middle of the nightI"m not sure about a life after thisGod knows I"ve never been a spiritual manBaptized by the fire, I wade into the riverThat runs to the promised landIn the middle of the nightI go walking in my sleepThrough the desert of truthTo the river so deepWe all end in the oceanWe all start in the streamsWe"re all carried alongBy the river of dreamsIn the middle of the night(Gloria, it"s not Marie)
