Well what do you know here we are again
Been a long time I can't remember when
Well I wrote another one and I guess who it's for
Don't mind if I 'm embarrassed I can't take it anymore
You know I travel the world but I don't go no place
And I got you to blame and the smile on your face
You know I look in your eyes I see a part of me there
So excuse my directness, but I just don't care

What I think I'm talking about is a last ditch chance
Don't care about the likelihood or circumstance
It seems I am still here and I am waiting for you
And I've no reason no time and an excellent view
Of your eyes in my head and it's killing me
But the possibilities are thrilling me
So I guess I'll sit right here with nothing better to do
And to top it all of you know the best part is

I'm gonna let you on in on a big surprise
My heart is where the eagle flies
Yeah I'm the master of my destiny
That's why I need you right here with me
You see I've come to learn that without you around
I might as well be standing on the ground
And with you with me and with me with you
There's not a goddamn thing thar we could not do

I'm not talking about us never being alone
I'm just suggesting we make the world our home
You've got to fly free and so do I
And this way we'd never need to say good-bye
But instead things like "see you soon"
And "explore and play"
And "the one you love is not far away"
"But safe in your heart to see you through"
And to top it all of you know the best part is that I

I'm gonna take you take you by the hand
You know even general custer had to make a stand
I'll drop in from the skies or I'll move in slow
But there's so damn much that I want you to know
So take a look around you tell me what do you see?
Then take those eyes and take a look at me
You know you see things that others don't
So if you think I'll go away, I won't

You see my engine's blown and it is time to punt
And there's an element of danger pulling off this stunt
But the survey says that I don't seem to mind
And you're the adventure I'm trying to find
There's a whole lot of things that other people have said
But I don't care if I'm correct or if it's all in my head
So damn the torpedoes and cock a doodle-doo
And to top it all of you know the best part is
That I love you

I'm singing I love you
Please, I'm down on my knees
In the north and the south and the east and the west
Make it the very, very, very
Best best part best part

POPPER, JOHN C.
