We Lived Alone (Doubletracked Version)

from Sad Lady EP by Connie Converse

lyrics

We lived alone, my house and I
We had the earth, we had the sky
I had a lamp against the dark
And I was happy as a lark

I had a stove and a window screen
I had a table painted green
Sat on a chair with a broken back
Wearing a pretty potato sack

I had a rug upon the floor
And roses bloomed around my door
Though my estate was never high
My house was snug and so was I

We lived alone, my house and I
We had the earth, we had the sky
I had a job, my wants were few
They were until I wanted you

And when I set my eyes on you
Nothing else would do
Nothing else would do
