One of the Best Ones
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
