"Juveniles" as written by and Walter R Martin Paul C Maroon....
You're with someone else
Tomorrow night
Doesn't matter to me

'Cause there's a sun dying
Into the hill
You got all I need

You pulled a blanket across my eyes
It's a tragedy
Take a lonely look, for my sake
It's a tragedy

Oh country air
Is good for me
No matter whose side I'm on

Let these dead leaves
Dry in the sun
I'll be up and gone

There's a stranger outside
Oh Lord!
He's a wiser man than I
Oh Lord

I am a good man
By any count
And I see better things to come

Could she be right?
When she repeats
I am the lucky one

You're one of us
Or one of them
You're one of us
Or one of them

You're one of us
Or one of them
You're one of us
Or one of them

You're one of us
Or one of them

    General Comment"Take a long look for my sake", maybe?

    For the meaning of the song, the whole set of lyrics sound as if it is about children during times of war, which explains the title. "Country air is good for me, no matter whose side I'm on" sort of makes sense in that context. I'm probably wrong though, this is my first ever post, I don't expect it to be entirely right!

    Lyric CorrectionMy take...

    You're with someone else
    Tomorrow night
    Doesn't matter to me

    'Cause as the sun dies (dives?)
    Into the hill
    You've got all of me

    You pull the blanket across my eyes
    It's a tragedy
    Take a lonely look for my sake
    It's a tragedy

    Oh country air
    Is good for me
    No matter whose side I'm on

    Like these dead leaves
    Dried in the sun
    I'll be up and gone

    There's a stranger outside
    Oh, Lord!
    He's a wiser man than I
    Oh, Lord

    I am a good man
    By any account
    I've seen better things to come

    Could she be right?
    When she repeats,
    "I am the lucky one."

    You're one of us
    Or one of them (X4)
