(feat. Sally Taylor)



(Carly Simon / Sally Taylor)

[A different version of this song appeared on the Anywhere But Here soundtrack]

We were so strong then
We built our house on our love
We had a heart on the hill

Love was so proud then
We lived in the clouds when
The tower was crumbling down
Around us on the hill

Oh, we've got to leave this town together
Clean out another house
Amity
Amity is not too much to ask

We reach to the sky still
In hopes we'd be able
To see the bigger picture later on

But we tumbled down
Jack 'n Jill all around
As the valley swallowed up
All the dreams we had made

Oh, see the lighthouse in the distance
On some farther shore

We were so strong then
We built our house on our love
We had a heart on the hill

Love was so proud then
We lived in the clouds when
The tower was crumbling down
Around us on the hill
