  Turned on some music to start my day,
  Then lost myself in a familiar song.
  I closed my eyes and I

Verse:

So many people have come and gone,
Their faces fade as the years go by;
Yet I still recall as I wonder on, as clear as the sun
In the summer sky.

When I hear that old song they used to play
And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
Til I see Marianne walk a-way,

I hide in my music, forget the day and
Dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away.  She slipped away

More Than a Feeling - Boston
More Than a Feeling - Boston
"More Than a Feeling" is a song written by Tom Scholz and first released by the rock band Boston as the lead single from their self-titled debut album on Epic Records in September 1976, with "Smokin'" on the flipside. The single peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. The track is now a staple of classic rock and in 1999 it was named the 39th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.

His biggest hit, "More Than a Feeling" took writer Tom Scholz five years to complete. It is one of six songs Scholz worked on in his basement in 1974 and 1975 before Boston got its record contract, five of which eventually appeared on the Boston album. The drum parts were originally developed by Jim Masdea, although Sib Hashian played the drums on the official release. The verses are in the key of D major while the chorus is in G major. The song is in compound AABA form.
