From the album STONEGROUND WORDS (1972)

Except * additional verse included on BALLROOM STREETS (1978)


We'll grow old, we'll take care of each other

I'll be your sister, your mother, your lover

We'll be friends during changes of weather

Lets be together on our own

Let's be together alone


We're believers, we've been hurt by believing

Needing people, we know looking's not seeing

I see needs that might be answered by forever

Together on our own

Let's be together alone


*I keep on asking is it want or is it need

That keeps me needing you forever

If we could make it

So it wasn't push and lean

We would never be alone


We'll learn living, like the words of a good song

We'll learn timing, balance and rhythm

We'll make it music

I'm tired of singing on my own

Let's be together alone
