Guess I'd get along without you
If I had no choice
It's taken me this long to find you 

Done a lot of getting ready for this
Some things we learn so slow
But look at you, you've got plenty behind you 

There's lots of ways to hit the ground
Not many answers to be found
We're faced with mysteries profound
And this is one of the best ones 

There are eight million mysteries
In the naked body
Can't even sight on some distant horizon 

Like the nine billion names of God
Don't bring you any closer
To anyone you can simply set eyes on 

But in the same way it's as real
Don't always recognize what I feel
But of the dancing scenes that life reveals
This is one of the best ones 

Say what you will
There's no snake oil or pill
Can make love less painful or fine
There's no theater
Even of the absurd
Can express what goes on in this meeting of hearts and minds 

Guess I'd get along without you
If I had no choice
But please never make it so I have to 

Paid a lot of dues to get here
And after all this life
I'm a loser if I don't live with you 

There's lots of ways to hit the ground
Not many answers to be found
We're faced with mysteries profound
And this is one of the best ones
