Artist: Todd Rundgren

Hello Its Me – Todd Rundgren

Todd-RundgrenKnown for being the true “solo” artist, Todd Rundgren wrote, played, sang and produced most of his hits.

Rundgren began his career in Woody’s Truck Stop, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based group based on the model of Paul Butterfield Blues Band. However, he wanted to pursue a more pop/rock-oriented sound, and left the band to form the garage rock group Nazz in 1967. The group gained minor recognition with the songs “Open My Eyes” and “Hello It’s Me”. (He later recorded a solo, uptempo version of “Hello It’s Me”; it became a Top Ten hit and remains one of his signature songs.) Nazz released two albums during this time – Nazz (1968) and Nazz Nazz (1969) – which bear the distinctive imprint of Rundgren’s writing, playing and singing.

Hello Its Me

Hello, it’s me
I’ve thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something’s wrong
There’s something here that doesn’t last too long
Maybe I shouldn’t think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you’re always there
I take for granted that you just don’t care
Sometimes I can’t help seeing all the way through

It’s important to me
That you know you are free
‘Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I’d be with you if I could
I’ll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

It’s important to me
That you know you are free
‘Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I’d be with you if I could
I’ll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

Think of me…
Think of me…
Think of me

A Dream Goes On Forever

A million old soldiers will fade away
But a dream goes on forever
I’m left standing here, I’ve got nothing to say
All is silent within my dream

A thousand true loves will live and die
But a dream lives on forever
The days and the years will go streaking by
But the time has stopped in my dream

We all have our everyday hopes and fears
And you’ll find no exception in me
But that doesn’t get me through a sea of tears
Over life’s biggest tragedy

You’re so long ago and so far away
But my dream lives on forever
I guess I believe that I’ll see you one day
For without it there is no dream

You’re so far away and so long ago
But my dream goes on forever
And how much I loved you you’ll never know
‘Til you join me within my dream
