James Taylor – There We Are lyrics

Listen to me and I'll sing you a song
And the time will go by
'til you never know where it's gone
Talk to me and I'll tell you my life story
Walk with me and I'll tell you my dreams of glory

There we are
Walking hand in hand
Somewhere on the sand
At the end of the land
And the edge of the shining sea

Drifting through time and space
On the face of a little blue ball
Falling around the sun
One in a million, billion, twinkling lights
Shining out for no one
In the middle of the night

Here we are
Sparks in the darkness
Speaking of our love
Burning down forever and forever

Oh I don't know if I told you
But you hold my heart in your hand
And I found out something about you
Baby, without you
I'm a lonely man

So though I never say that I love you
I love you
Darling I do
Carly, I do love you
And though we are as nothing
To the stars that shine above
You are my universe
You are my love

Here we are
Like children forever
Taking care of one another
While the world goes on without us
All around us

    James Taylor has to own up to what he wrote in A song to his then wife Carly Simon. He wrote a love song & said her name, which he only did 1X. It doesn't take away any thing from his current wife. I'm sure she knows about Carly, but what kind of person tries to deny his previous life?
