You And I

This song is by Hoola Bandoola Band and appears on the album Hoola Bandoola Export (1971).

Alone in the whirling crowd
I felt you come near
Everyone cried so loud
That I hardly could hear
When you whispered to me:
"Go with me, I'm going home"
Suddenly I thought I knew you
But I can tell you
You and I will never fly together

I wanted to hold your hand
To make you feel good
I wanted to understand
As much as I could
And out into the night, babe
You took me where we had to go
And all was winterwhite
But I can tell you, baby
You and I will never fly together

I didn't know any answers
And I'd forgotten everything I'd heard
And you didn't have
Any questions to ask
And so we walked along without a word

But then you began to speak
As the night went away
You said that the sky was green
And I was afraid
To lose what we had in common
I whished I hadn't heard you right
I felt that your hand was gone
When I was groping to get near you

And when you pointed to a place
I've never known
And said, we're home
I finally conceived
What I'd refused to believe:
Everybody has to go searching
On their own

And so I must say goodbye
I have to go on
But out in the lonely nights
I know have to come
I'll often think about you
(My memory never lets me down)
But I have to go without you
'Cause I can tell you
You and I will never fly together
