For All We Know

 

Something for the weekend.  For All We Know (1970).  When I am in the mood for mellow I turn to the late, great Karen Carpenter.  Originally written for the film Lovers and Other Strangers (1970), it attained hit status with the cover by the Carpenters in 1971.  The lyrics are simple but there is a great deal of truth in them, at least so they seem to me from my vantage of 38 years of being happily married.  All successful marriages are the triumph of hope over fear and doubt, and such triumphs are ever to be celebrated in our journeys through this Vale of Tears.

 

Love, look at the two of us,
Strangers in many ways.
We’ve got a lifetime to share,
So much to say and as we go from day to day
I’ll feel you close to me.
But time alone will tell.
Let’s take a lifetime to say,
I knew you well,
For only time will tell us so.
And love may grow for all we know.
Love, look at the two of us,
Strangers in many ways.
Let’s take a lifetime to say,
I knew you well,
For only time will tell us so.
And love may grow for all we know
