You and Me Song

Always when we fight
I try to make you laugh
'Til everything's forgotten
I know you hate that

Always when we fight
I kiss you once or twice
And everything's forgotten
I know you hate that

I love you Sunday song
The week's not yet begun
And everything is quiet
And it's always

You and me always, and forever

You tell me I'm a real man
and try to look impressed
Not very convincing
But you know I love it

Now we watch TV
Til we fall asleep
Not very exciting
But it's you and me
and we'll always be together
You and me always, and forever

- You and Me Song by The Wannadies

This song could not have come to me at a more perfect time. Today, after a surprise lunch of nachos and pasta, I had someone explain to me how ratchets work as I thoroughly enjoyed a honey glazed donut. In between bites, I laughed, not because I didn't appreciate the science, but precisely because I did, even if I didn't have to, even if I didn't want to. I laughed because it isn't difficult for us to switch gears from kinematics to fiction to politics, all with his hand on the wheel, and the other entangled in mine. I laughed because it's always the most mundane things that affirm the affection. I laughed because I secretly marveled at how the honey glazed donut always just has the right amount of sweetness, as I licked the sugar off my hands before holding his again.

Right now, there is no other song to better punctuate the silences, the differences, thetogetherness. Thank you, The Wannadies. I needed this. :)
