Rickie Lee Jones

The most as you'll ever go

Is back where you used to know

If grown-ups could laugh this slow

Where as you watch the hour snow

Years may go by

So hold on to your special friend

Here, you'll need something to keep her in:

"Now you stay inside this foolish grin ... "

Though any day your secrets end

Then again

Years may go by

You saved your own special friend

'Cuz here you need something to hide her in

And you stay inside that foolish grin

When everyday now secrets end

Oh and then again

Years may go by
