better together

April 24, 2007

there’s no combination of words
i could put on the back of a postcard –
no song i could sing
but i can try for your heart
our dreams, and they are made out of real things,
like a, shoebox of photographs
with sepiatone loving.
love is the answer,
at least for most of the questions in my heart
like why are we here? and where do we go?
and how come we’re so hard?
it’s not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving –
i’ll tell you one thing: it’s always better when we’re together.

mmm it’s always better when we’re together
look at the stars when we’re together
it’s always better when we’re together
yeah, it’s always better when we’re together.

and all of these moments
just might find there way into my dreams tonight,
but i know that they’ll be gone
when the morning light sings
and brings new things.
but tomorrow night you’ll see
that they’ll be gone too –
too many things i have to do.
but if all of these dreams might find their way
into my day-to-day scene,
i’ll be under the impression
i was somewhere in between
with only two,
just me and you.
not so many things we got to do
or places we got to be –
we’ll sit beneath the mango tree.

it’s always better when we’re together
somewhere in between together,
it’s always better when we’re together
yeah, it’s always better when we’re together.

mmm mmm mmm
i believe in memories –
they look so, so pretty when i sleep
hey now, and when i wake up,
you look so pretty sleeping next to me.
but there is no time,
and there is no song i could sing
and there is no combination of words i could say
but i will still tell you one thing –
we’re better together.
