Carly Simon – When We're Together lyrics
"Hi," he says
"Higher than the stars," he says
And "I know I've seen you before," he says
She looks up deep into his eyes and stares
"Where were you into my life till now?"

I know that when we're together our hearts fall into line
And I know why I'm afraid, this is my first time
And the stars will be quiet while I sing you this song
And I know I've been here before, and all day long

"Why," he says, "run away from faded prayers?"
"Are you so scared that we might not get along?"
Shy, she is, weary to speak of love
And too tired to sleep, too tired to dream

I know that when we're together our hearts will fall in line
And I know why you're afraid, this is your first time
And our hearts will be quiet while I sing you this song
And I know I've been here before, and all day long

Winter comes, brings with it it's shortened days
Leaves us less time in between deep nights
And she stays because there's no time to wait
And the morning stillness still leaves no time for the light

I know that when we're together our hearts will fall in line
I know why we're afraid, this is our first time
Our hearts will be quiet while I sing you this song
And I know I've been here before, and all along
I know I've been here before, and all along
All day long, and all along. All along...
