lyrics

Anyone can start to write a poem:
“Roses red and dandelions die.”
But another line and you gotta start to rhyme ‘em.
I could finish, but I’d rather learn to fly.
I don’t know where I learned to be a wanderer;
They say I ran before I learned to walk.
And lately I’ve been thinking there’s a reason
We also cry before we learn to talk.

You go your way and I’ll go mine
We won’t notice the passing time
Maybe eventually we will find a way to rhyme but for now
You go your way and I’ll go mine

You said that you needed me to tell you
That I had made my mind up, I was gone.
So in the moonlight driveway I told both of us
That it was best if we’d just move along.
‘Cause baby, we were going through the motions
(It’s easier to think that, anyway).
Our houses, now, are built on different oceans,
And I’m doing what I can to try and stay.

You go your way and I’ll go mine
We won’t notice the passing time
Maybe eventually we will find a way to rhyme but for now
You go your way and I’ll go mine

The third time I lied was like the second:
I said I could get on being friends.
But I don’t think I could stand to see your wedding
Unless I got to kiss you in the end.
There’s not a lot of ways to end the story;
I’m sure I’ll see you somewhere down the line.
The only other ending I can think of:
Won’t you be the little light of mine?

I’ll go your way if you’ll go mine,
And we won’t notice the years go by.
Old together, we’ll have found a way to rhyme—
but for now
You go your way, and I’ll go mine.
Yeah you go your way, and I’ll go mine.
