As We Go Along - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Carole King & Toni Stern
I can tell by your face
That you're looking to find a place
To settle your mind and reveal who you are,
And you shouldn't be shy,
For I'm not gonna try
To hurt you or heal you or steal your star.
Open your eyes,
Get up off of your chair,
There's so much to do in the sunlight,
Give up your secrets,
And let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.
Why think all about
Who's gonna win out?
We'll make up our story as we go along,
There's so little time
For us to try to rhyme,
And so many highways to travel upon.
Open your eyes,
Get up off of your chair,
There's so much to do in the sunlight,
Give up your secrets,
And let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.
