I used to think that being alone would somehow simplify my life
But I really know myself and I know I'm going miss tonight
Talking on the telephone or having all the postage paid
Will never make me feel as good as walking on those river banks

Laughing like two little kids sitting in the back of class
The only thing that's on my mind is how to make this moment last
So I pulled my camera out and aimed it at your smiling face
All the while we hear the sound of our time ticking away

I used to think that being in love would somehow complicate my life
But I really know my heart and I can hear yours beat with mine
Pounding on piano keys and strumming those old copper strings
Will always make me feel like your standing right there next to me

Singing like two little kids waiting for the rain to pass
The only thing that's on my mind is how to make this moment last
So I pulled my feelings out and left them in your travel case
All the while we hear the sound of our time ticking away

If I was a rich man I would bring my friends along
We'd move up to the mountains and record a hundred songs
But since my wallet's empty and I have these lines to sing
Just know that I will see you all when I close my eyes and dream

I will see you Joseph with that child light in your eyes
Standing in the moonlight staring up at all the stars
We'll be with Piana as she plays those organ keys
And we'll all become kids again and laugh out loud until our hearts are free

Just her and him
Her and him and me
