Just the Two of Us
Grover Washington Jr. Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you sometime
And I wanna spend some time with you

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
(Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

We look for love, no time for tears
Wasted water's all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow
Good things might come to those who wait
Not for those who wait too late
We gotta go for all we know

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
(Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
Building them castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

I hear the crystal raindrops fall
On the window down the hall
And it becomes the morning dew
And darling when the morning comes
And I see the morning sun
I wanna be the one with you

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
(Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
Building big castles way on high
Just the two of us
You and I

(Just the two of us) Just the two of us
(We can make it, just the two of us)
Let's get it together baby (yeah)
(Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
(We can make it, just the two of us)
(Just the two of us)
(We can make it, just the two of us)
(Just the two of us)
(We can make it, just the two of us)
(Just the two of us)
(We can make it, just the two of us)
(Just the two of us)
(We can make it, just the two of us)
(Just the two of us)

Best wishes from North Carolina. Hang in there.

This brings back such a vivid memory from when this song came out, 1981. I was 13, it was a warm summer day in a small farm-town, middle of no-where, it had showered all morning, around noon the sun came shining through and it was one of the most beautiful days. I hopped on my bike and went riding through the country roads, smelling the incredibly fresh air, green grass and the apple orchards in full bloom. 41 years later I still ride my bike just as much as I did back then, but now I smell the ocean. This song still makes me feel that awe and mystery of life
