When All Is Said And Done

Here's to us
one more toast
and then we'll
pay the bill
deep inside
both of us
can feel the
autumn chill
birds of passage
you and me
we fly instinctively
when the summer's
over and the dark
clouds hide the sun
neither you nor
I'm to blame
when all is said and done

In our lives
we have walked
some strange
and lonely treks
slightly worn
but dignified
and not too
old for sex
we're still striving
for the sky
no taste for
humble pie
thanks for all
your generous love
and thanks for all the fun
neither you nor
I'm to blame
when all is said and done

It's so strange
when you're down
and lying on the floor
how you rise
shake your head
get up and
ask for more
clear-headed and
open-eyed
with nothing
left untried
standing calmly
at the crossroads
no desire to run
there's no hurry
anymore
when all is said and done

Standing calmly
at the crossroads
no desire to run
there's no hurry
anymore
when all is said and done
