Evenin'
Hugh Laurie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Evening, every night you come and you find me
Why must you always remind me, that my baby's gone
Evening, you got me deeper in your power
Every minute seems like an hour
Since my baby's gone

Shadows fall upon the wall
That's the time I miss your kisses most of all
Even though I try, how can I go on
Oh evening, let me sleep 'til the glow of dawn is breaking
I don't care if I don't awaken
Since my baby's gone

Shadows fall upon the wall
That's the time I miss your kisses most of all
Even though I try, how can I go on
Oh evening, let me sleep 'til the glow of dawn is breaking




I don't care if I don't awaken
Since my baby's gone

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Hugh Laurie's "Evenin'" express the sorrow and pain that comes with heartbreak. The singer is lamenting over the absence of their beloved, and how the evening time seems to remind them of their loneliness. The song opens with the singer addressing the evening, asking why it must always come and remind them that their baby is gone. They are in the thralls of grief and find themselves sinking deeper into its clutches with every passing moment. The unending minutes feel like hours in their current state of despair.


The shadows that fall upon the wall serve as a haunting reminder of their lost love. The lyrics express a longing for their partner's embrace and the kisses that they miss most of all during the evening time.

Why must you always remind me, that my baby's gone
Evening, you got me deeper in your power
Every minute seems like an hour

The most impressive thing about his music is how he does not care about making money at all, he just loves doing it. That amount of non-commercial art is something really rare today.

Then why does he sell it instead of making it free? If he loves doing it he's making the music anyway and he's already rich why not give it away?

Irvine Meadows

Come on,music is same hard work like anything else, and it has to be paid. And of course he has to pay to all the session musicians,people who film it, to rent a studio etc. Anyway, if you want to download it for free,you will.

He only had one concert here and I went to see it due to Dr. House. I loved the tv-show and I was curious of how he's singing. He's a showman! Talented, with a great voice, funny, relaxed. I wish I could listen to him live again...

I don't usually listen to jazz but this is amazing!! Hugh Laurie is a beast!
