by Richard Manuel and Rick Danko. Album: Eric Clapton's No Reason to Cry
I've told you once, now you should know The reason that I'm coming down. There ain't no time to repeat again; Just need to bring it around. We had a beautiful thing going, You couldn't see things my way. We had a beautiful thing going, Something just got in our way. And I told you once that it was rough. I looked on you as my friend, Because that did not seem to be good enough, And now it's time to begin. We've got a beautiful thing going, I hope that's the way it will stay. We've got a beautiful thing going, Nothing can stand in our way.
