I remember the days of just keeping time
Of hanging around in sleepy towns forever
Back roads empty for miles

Well, you can't have a dream and cut it to fit
But when I saw you, I knew
We'd go together like a wink and a smile

Leave your old jalopy
By the railroad track
We'll get a hip double-dip tip-toppy
Two-seat Pontiac

So you can rev her up, don't go slow
It's only green lights and alright
Let's go together with a wink and a smile

Give me a wink and a smile
We go together like a wink and a smile

Now my heart is music, such a simple song
Sing it again the notes never end
This is where I belong

Just the sound of your voice
The light in your eyes
We're so far away from yesterday
Together with a wink and a smile

We go together like a wink and a smile

    General CommentYou can't have your dreams turn out exactly the way you want them to, but sometimes they do come true, and in unexpected ways that turn out to be better than what you'd hoped for originally.

    There's something so wonderful to me about the line "we go together like a wink and a smile." It's not just using a random pair of things, it says more than that. To me it says that when they're together, they're two expressions of joy that go perfectly together to express something in a way that simply can't be expressed without the other.
