Want to pack your bags something small
Take what you need and we'll disappear
Without a trace we'll be gone
Moon and the stars will follow the car
And then when we get to the ocean
Gonna take a boat to the end of the world
All the way to the end of the world
Oh, and when the kids are old enough we're gonna teach them to fly

You and me together
We can do anything baby
You and me together yes yes
You and me together
We can do anything baby
You and me together yes yes

You and I are not tied to the ground
Not falling but rising like rolling around
Eyes closed above the rooftops
With eyes closed we're gonna spin through the stars
Our arms wide as the sky we're gonna ride the blue
All the way to the end of the world
When the kids are old enough we're gonna teach them to fly

You and me together
We can do anything baby
You and me together yes yes
You and me together
We can do anything baby
You and me together yes yes

You and me together
We can do anything baby
You and me together yeah yeah
The two of us together
We can do anything baby
The two of us together yeah yeah
The two of us together yeah yeah
The two of us together
We can do anything baby

The sun is swollen
Till we reach the end of the world

    General CommentThere's a bit missing:

    We can always look back at what we did
    Always the memory of you and me baby
    But right now it's you and me forever girl
    You know we can do better than anything that we did
    You know that you and me we can do anything

    This song is beautiful, amazing, wonderful...I simply cannot stop listening to it. It's about escaping with the one you love to forever. The last part nods to leaving behind the past and just looking forward to what you will have together. And the line "When the kids are old enough we're gonna teach them how to fly"...they're going to teach how they love and live to their children...I love it!

    A brilliant album.

    MemoryAt the very end there is a repeated sax part. This whole album is pretty much a tribute to the former fallen comrade LeRoi Moore. Since it is the same thing over and over, is it known whether this is the last of LeRoi's sax playing or is it a Jeff Coffin tribute?

    Either way, it is very fitting to way to end the whole album!

    General CommentI just can't stop listening to this song. The kick drum during the chorus(its very soft, hard to hear) seems to always go right in beat with my heart. ITS GREAT! This song is beautiful. Its about finding the one you love and raising kids and spending your future with them. I think i heard on the Fuse Documentary that was on all this week, this song was about him and his wife.
    I recall him saying something like this - this whole album is dark and bring out a lot of deep stuff, not until the last song about my wife where it gets a bit brighter.

    General CommentNot Dave's best work lyrically by any stretch of the imagination. But it's a fun song with a nice accoustic guitar sound. It is about a couple sending their kids off in the world and living out their retired lives together.

    General CommentThis song sounds so familiar.........

    I think is dangerously close to another song. The part "We can do anything", make me thing "we could go anywhere right after that".
