Radio XLV, side B, track 9: “We Could Be Together” by Debbie Gibson

Debbie Gibson - We Could Be TogetherOh, Debbie Gibson, you know I love you, right?  I feel like I’ve made that pretty clear.  And you know I’d do anything for you.  To quote you, if you said “Run”, I’d run and fly.  So you know that this is coming from a place of complete and utter devotion.

I’m worried about you, Debbie Gibson.

This song is so great.  There’s no denying that.  And you sound so very happy, and I don’t want to be the one to take such happiness away from you, but are you sure you’re making the right decision here?  I mean, you sound absolutely jubilant that you’re breaking up with your boyfriend.  Like you can’t wait to do it.  And it doesn’t sound like he’s a jerk or anything, it just sounds like you’re so crazy in love with some other person that you’re going to break your boyfriend’s heart with a giant grin on your face.  That just doesn’t sound like the Debbie Gibson I know, Debbie Gibson.  You wouldn’t get joy out of hurting someone else.  And it doesn’t sound like your friends are into this new guy.  Hell, Debbie Gibson, it doesn’t sound like the WHOLE WORLD likes him.  And you’re throwing everything away to be with this new fella FOR A WHILE.  You’re so blinded by love that you’re going to dive headlong into this, ruin all your other relationships, for just a brief moment in time.

I don’t know, Debbie Gibson.  I think you need to re-think what you’re doing here and not make such a rash decision.

Unless this song is about me.  If so, then carry on, and I’ll see you soon!

“We Could Be Together”

<awesome Debbie Gibson jam>

If I were an only child

I would be a lonely child

Baby, we’ve got nothing to lose

I’m standing tall in my own shoes

I’ll take this chance
I’ll make this choice
I’ll right this wrong
I’ll raise my voice if it means
We’ll be together
For a whiiiiiile

I have never had a doubt

But for you I’ll take time out

I’ll push his love far away from me

And then I’ll be completely free

I’ll give up my
Security
For just the possibility that we
Be togeeeether for a whiiiiile

If you said “Jump!” I’d say “How high?”

If you said “Run!” I’d run and fly

Just for the chance
Just for the moment should the moment
Pass us byyyyyyy

If you ask once I’ll tell you twice

I’ll ignore the world’s advice
If we
Could be together
For a whiiiiiile

I am taken by your strength

I’ve thought about it
At great length

I thought that I was happy now

But there are things that
I found out

Happiness means greater things
I’ll sit here ’til that telephone rings
Then we
Could be together
For a whiiiiile

Ohhhhhh
If you said “Jump!” I’d say “How high?”

If you said “Run!” I’d run and fly

Just for the chance
Just for the moment should the moment
Pass us byyyyyyy

If you ask once I’ll tell you twice

I’ll ignore the world’s advice
If we could be together
For a whiiiiiile

Wait’ll I tell my guy (wait’ll I tell)
Wait’ll I tell my other friends

They’ll all think I’m crazy and ya know what

Thaaaat depends ’cause I’m crazy in love

With you

And everyone’s best won’t do
They’ll say my hopes
Will not come true

Taking the chance

Because you only live ooonce
Only live ooooooonce (only live ooooonce)
Aaaaaand if you said “Jump!” I’d say “How high?”

If you said “Run!” ya know I’d fly

Just for the chance
Just for the moment should the moment
Pass us byyyyyyy

If you ask once I’ll tell you twice

I’ll ignore the world’s advice
If we
Could be together
For a whiiiiiile

If you said “Jump!” I’d say “How high?”

If you said “Run!” I’d run and fly

Just for the chance
Just for the moment should the moment
Pass us byyyyyyy

If you ask once I’ll tell you twice

I’ll ignore the world’s advice
If we
Could be together
For a whiiiiiile

Doncha know we
Could be together

For a whiiiiiiiiiiiiile
