(Carly Simon/Mike Mainieri)

James,
Your voice is like the water
When I lift this shell to my ear
I can hear you pourin' out your heart to me
James,
The beauty of your voice
Lifts us from sadness
James,
Let us become like water together
Sing to me
Sit on the edge of my bed as when we
First spent nights together
Your body wrapped around your guitar
Let the music speak for your heart
Let them combine like water and sand
Let them meet the air like drops of rain
And bring us together, once again
