We Almost Got It Together (Tikaram Tanita)

We almost got it together And I'll be your favourite thing Stand by the river with hard-luck eyes And I'll just be open and sing I was only trying to surprise I wish I was like the frog-princess And I'd never tell you lies And down by the soil of the hard-life They like to greet us with smiles They like to tell us their good hostess Had travelled a million miles But you'd like it written closer Yes, you'd like it written pure If I told you this - Would you miss my kiss? No - you'd come right back for more Oh, I'd like to be What I want to be But you want to carry on But you need to take What you have to take But I'll still be here when you're gone And there's a light by your window And I'd like to capture you by there And I'd like to hold you for all to see But they don't really care And if I said you're no peccadillo Yes, I said you're a major thing Would you stand by me? At the corner dock And say, "yes, this girl is the swing!" Oh, I'd like to be What I want to be But you want to carry on But you need to take What you have to take But I'll still be here when you're gone And I'd like another cue That's why I strain to see And I'd like the best in you 'Cos you write the best in me They were sure that I'd be burning Yes - So their tart swerve to here might be But if I said "you're gold ffb , inside", Yes and if you were true to me Would you hang around with that creepy smile And crawl home back to me Oh, I'd like to be What I want to be But you want to carry on But you need to take What you have to take But I'll still be here when you're gone
