Walking with You

(unreleased song, 1980)

Lyrics by Tori (Ellen) Amos

Every night I sit alone
Waiting to see you at my door
Arriving at the usual time
Waiting to share your love with mine
Well Iíve waited a lifetime just to find you
But you have to be leaving success is your seeking
then in a few months you can come home to me
Itís the job that you need
itís the school that you have to complete
you just have to go on with your deeds
But Iíll be waiting right here as I am
But before you leave
make me a promise Iíll need you to keep

Remember me while youíre away
Think of me when youíre alone
In everything that I do
I do it in twos
cause Iíll always be walking with you
side by side
in my mind

Facing another empty evening
lying alone here in my bed
You keep my mind from my job
But you lead my life with love
You hold my chin up high
Your love shines through my eyes
Your soul walks by my side
keeping this body alive
As I run to catch the bus
I get a strange look or two
cause instead of just buying a ticket for me
I also buy a ticket for you

Now some people say Iím crazy
but itís the only way not to feel blue
cause in everything that I do
I do it in twos
cause Iíll always be walking with you

Remember me while youíre away
Think of me when youíre alone
In everything that I do
I do it in twos
cause Iíll always be walking with you
side by side
in my mind


"Walking with You"
1980
