About the Song
"You Don't Bring Me Flowers" is a song that hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1978. It is a song about two lovers who have drifted apart while they "go through the motions" and heartache of life together. Its lyrics include what became somewhat of a "cult phrase": But 'used-to-bes' don't count anymore/They just lay on the floor 'till we sweep them away. The song was written by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman for the ill-fated TV show All That Glitters.[1] The song was intended to be a theme song, but Norman Lear changed the concept of the show so that the song no longer fit. Eventually, Neil Diamond and several collaborators came upon the song (then only 45 seconds long) and expanded it with instrumental sections. The Bergmans expanded the song to full length with an additional verse, and the composition took form. In 1977, Diamond released the album I'm Glad You're Here With Me.    Download this sheet!
