"Just The Two Of Us" as written by and William Salter Bill Withers....
I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you sometime
And I want to spend some time with you

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

We look for love no time for tears
Wasted water's all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow

Good things might come to those who wait
Not for those who wait too late
We gotta go for all we know

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

I hear the crystal raindrops fall
On the window down the hall
And it becomes the morning dew

And darling when the morning comes
And I see the morning sun
I want to be the one with you.

    General CommentThis man loves this woman very much. Their relationship is pretty rocky, but he has confidence that it will remain so long as they try hard to improve it. Sweet song, I tell you.

    My InterpretationThis song's directed towards a girl the narrator is deeply in love with. It's basically saying "We're in love, let's indulge". He's bascially saying "Let's not wait, jump on in". It's a feel-good song, love and positivity all round.

    General CommentI saw the documentary "Still Bill" about Bill Withers recently. Good stuff and so informative on the true Bill Withers and his life. Fascinating really. He states in the documentary that he wrote this song out of his frustration with the music industry. This song is actually about the music industry. Funny, since he recognizes that everyone thinks it's a romantic song.

    General CommentThis song is a bout a middle age couple who have lived the first part of their lives raising their kids and as the last child leaves the home the night before, the husband wakes up the next morning and realizes they are now empty-nesters. He awakens his beautiful loving wife, looks deeply into her eyes and sings "Just the Two of Us". They are now ready for the next phase of life spending it together determined to make it fulfilling all of their goals they never met in the first half of life while raising their children before death comes.

    General CommentI think this song is about insanity. It may seem far-fetched, but if you pay attention to it, you can see that you have an unreliable narrator, and what he really wants to do is be with the girl till he inevitably goes insane. He wants her to be with him even if he goes insane.

    "Building castles in the sky" is referred to in a book by Dr. Henry Smith Williams. <jstor.org/pss/…> It talks about paranoia and the effects of it. The narrator was obviously paranoid.

    He is also either very possessive, or merely a romantic. He constantly refers to it just being "the two of us". Realistically, one cannot just be around with one person forever. One needs more human interaction than that.

    "I hear the crystal raindrops fall
    On the window down the hall
    And it becomes the morning dew"
    Silly man. Dew doesn't form that way. The narrator apparently has a bit of stupid, or just Peter Pan Syndrome.

    That's what I think.
