"More Than A Feeling" as written by and T. Scholz....
I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
Turned on some music to start my day
I lost myself in a familiar song
I closed my eyes and I slipped away

It's more than a feeling (more than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
Till I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin' away

So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on
As clear as the sun in the summer sky

It's more than a feeling (more than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
Till I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin' away

When I'm tired and thinking cold
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

It's more than a feeling (more than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
Till I see Marianne walk away

    Song MeaningAwesome tune! Boston's greatest, hands down. I thinks it's about how a song can bring back bittersweet memories & help us escape reality at the same time. Whenever I hear it, I think of a girl I had a crush on many years ago. (Her name wasn't Marianne, but that's beside the point.) I was too shy at the time to even ask her out. She started dating someone else & she eventually married him. Last I heard, she was still married to him. "...And dream of a girl I used to know/ I closed my eyes and she slipped away/ She slipped away/ She slipped away" Yep, she slipped away from me. Well, life goes on.
