Hello Like Before
Bill Withers Lyrics


A hello like before
I'd never come here
If I'd known that you were here
I must admit though
That's it's nice to see you, dear
You look like you've been doing well

A hello like before
I hope we've grown
'Cause we were only children then
For laughs, I guess we both can say
"I knew you when"
But then again, that's kiss and tell

Hello like before
I guess it's different
'Cause we know each other now
I guess I've always known
We'd meet again somehow
So that it might as well be now

Hello like before
I hope we've grown
'Cause we were only children then
For laughs, I guess we both can say
"I knew you when"
But then again, that's kiss and tell

Hello like before
I guess it's different
'Cause we know each other now
I guess I've always known
We'd meet again somehow
So that it might as well be now

This is one of his most underrated songs to me. The orchestration, along with his singing is just masterful. A true classic.

Bill paints the picture perfectly. The beauty, the melancholy,the regret and the acceptance. Timeless

It'sme,Tina! T.

You explained that so well. My heart shook just reading that. The regret and acceptance. Damn. The truth in this melody is so sadly beautiful.

I love this soulful, sad song, and Bill Withers puts just the appropriate amount of longing in it. I hadn't heard it in a long time. Just beautiful, I'll be back to hear it again.

Bill is the most underrated talent to ever bless a studio and a stage with his amazing spiritual genius. I have always called him the Quiet Giant of music. Funny how he ended up soaring higher than the planes he worked on and went from stuttering his words to singing staggeringly incredible songs.
