Year Two, Week Seventeen: “You and Me Alone”

Lyrics:

What I wouldn’t give for ten more minutes
What I wouldn’t give for an hour or so
What I wouldn’t give for another twenty years
just you and me alone

What I wouldn’t give for the lights to go out
What I wouldn’t give for the traffic to stop
What I wouldn’t give for Rahm to call a meeting
And tell Chicago to take the whole week off

I’d bargain my soul and every little thing that I own
For some time and attention, and out of school suspension
just you and me alone

What I wouldn’t give for a new coat of paint
What I wouldn’t give for a fancy new skin
What I wouldn’t give to live all this over
So I could meet you for the first time again

What I wouldn’t give for love to win out
What I wouldn’t give for the violence to cease
What I wouldn’t give for The Band to reunite
and sing “I Shall Be Released”

I’d bargain my soul and every little thing that I own
for some time and attention, an out of school suspension
just you and me alone

What I wouldn’t give for a steady beat
What I wouldn’t give for four on the floor
What I wouldn’t give to take back the moment
that made you walk out my door

What I wouldn’t give for a natural disaster
What I wouldn’t give for a fire alarm
What I wouldn’t give for the end of the world
If it brought you back to my arms

I’d bargain my soul and every little thing that I own
for some time and attention, an out of school suspension
just you and me alone

I’d bargain my soul and every little thing that I own
for some time and attention, an out of school suspension
just you and me alone
