cd imgA MUSICAL RETROSPECTIVE #2 (T-719)

  Live, Fox Warfield Theater, San Francisco CA - 16.nov.1980  

Can we keep it between us?
These people meddlin' in our affairs, they're not our friends
Let's keep it between us
'Fore the last door closes and it all appears
They'll tell you one thing, tell me another
Till we don't know who to trust
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

Let's keep it between us
We've been through too much together that they've never shared
They've had nothing to say to us before
Now of all a sudden it's as if they've always cared
All we need is honesty, just a little humility and trust
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

I know we're not perfect
Then again so what?
Ain't no reason to treat like a snake
Treat you like you were a slut
It's just making me angry

Can we lay back for a moment?
Before the whole thing breaks down and goes too far
We can't deal with it by ourselves
We both ??? than they think we are
Backseat drivers don't know the feel of the wheel
But they sure do know how to make a fuss
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

Can we lay back for a moment?
Too much evidence seems to lie on their head 
They'll talk behind our ???, behind our back
??? you can hear everything they say
In the company of fools before
It's best to move move to the back of the back of the bus
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?  up

Let's keep it between us
These people meddlin' in our affairs, they're not our friends
Let's keep it between us
'Fore the last door closes and it all begins
They'll tell you one thing, tell me another [thing]
Till we don't know who to trust
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

Let's keep it between us
We've been through too much together that they've never shared

They've had nothing to say to us before
Now of all a sudden it's as if they've always cared
All we need is honesty, just a little humility and trust
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

I know we're just different now [/not perfect]
Then again so what?
Ain't no reason for feeling so low down
Treat you like a slut   
This is just making me angry

Can we lay back for a moment?
Before everything breaks down and goes too far

We can deal with it by ourselves
Where we ??? than they think we are
Backseat drivers don't know the feel of the wheel
But they sure do know how to make a fuss
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?

Can we lay back for a moment?
Too much evidence seems to lie on their head 
They talk behind our ???, behind our back
??? you can hear everything they say
In the company of fools before
Let's just move to the back of the back of the bus
Oh darling, can we keep it between us?  up
