"Beyond the Bend Ahead" as written by and Rod Mckuen Anita Kerr....
I know a tree
Beyond the bend ahead
That drags its branches in the water
Beneath it there is yellow grass
And colored stones

If you can shake your new friend from your mind
We'll go down to the water's edge
And give ourselves another chance
Think about the squirrels darting in the fallen leaves
Consider the changing clouds
The crickets are still singing in the grass
Think about they'll sound when Christmas comes around again

This is daylight
Turn and face me, face-to-face
We'll go naked in the afternoon
And then you'll see I'm only me
Have you expected something more all this time?
Or does your new love taste like apple wine?

I taste like you
Remember?
Because I've been with you so long
Because we are each other
Because we are ourselves
All I have to find for you
Is what I've been before
