There's me then there's you


And I could dance with the puck


In a telephone booth


You said,


"I don't give a fuck


Besides enough about you


And your 'evil's banal'


Cause as soon as Joni says 'blue'


You're somewhere else"




There's me then there's you


And I could not hear it yet


From a telephone booth


I do my hungover best


And say,


"Enough about you


And your representative hell


I jump in when you do


Like there's nowhere else


And then


Of course


There's the dorsal fin


Closing in that you can't outswim"




"It's not him that I gotta outswim" you said,


"just you"


You said,


"just you"




& there's the heart of the melt

There's the narrowest flume


There's the somewhere else


When I'm with you


There's nowhere else


There's me and there's you


There's me and there's you


You could not say enough


If there were several yous


That would not be enough


There's me and there's you


You're a beautiful you


A beautiful you


Are beautiful you


Could not say enough


If there were several truths


It would not be enough


We're a beautiful


Two
