Ill Spend My Life With You - Lyrics by Monkees

by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
People come and people go,
Moving fast and moving slow,I'm in a crowd and yet I'm all alone.
The road is long, the road is rough,I do believe I've had enough,I'm gonna turn around and head for home.
And I hope you're there,
And you still care,
And, if you do,I'll spend my life with you.I've had all the time I need
To rearrange my mind and lead
The life I thought I wanted yesterday.I played a game that couldn't last,
And now some memories from my past
Have turned my thoughts around a different way.
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,I'll spend my life with you.SOLO
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,I'll spend my life with you.
