You And Me – Written Tuesday 17th July 2001 (Aged 26)

You And Me

it’s just you and me,
and one great big world
they say,
that world is getting smaller
but to see beyond the horizon
i need to be much taller
it’s just you and me
or it’s them and us,
i don’t need to barricade the doors
because we won’t make a fuss
you have come a long way,
with further to go still,
you think you are wise
but you’re just learning to feel
it’s just you and me
and for me,
i live for the phone calls
and her company far away
she makes me feel so tall
and i miss her so much today
but i know,
it’s just you and me
