"Gemini" as written by and Jimmy Heath....
if you promise me
you won't leave first
if you promise me
you won't leave

clear the books of the pictures
summers between six and nineteen
you were younger
take them all off the wall
so you can see us all
alone and you're older
all for me and my

gemini
why can't i
watch out for july
gemini
eaten alive
from the inside

remember nights when we used to drive
i'm surprised that we're still alive
you didn't have any headlights
on your car
we used to drive so slow
stick our heads out the window and breath in the night

you and lou at the U. '62
take a ride when cells divide
cause kansas doesn't make a continent
it just kills you
way out west

gemini
why can't i
watch out for july
gemini
eaten alive from the inside

and if you promise me
you won't leave first
if you promise me
you won't leave

all the things we'll miss you doing
stick around for kissing cousins
tasting blood you've got suspicions
convictions that carry you back home

gemini
why can't i
watch out for july
gemini
eaten alive from the inside

i think i'm tasting your blood again
have to have a suspicion
take a trip to the doctor
i wish that you were here right now
you said that you'd never leave me
but now it looks like you're leaving
time is all we wish for a kiss if you were here right now

clear the books of the pictures
summers between six and nineteen
you were younger
take them all off the wall
so you can see us all
alone and you're older

and she'll say
if you promise me
you won't leave first
and if you promise me
that you won't leave
