Since we need to start somewhere, right where we are seems to be the logical place...

"If You Don't Want To (I Don't Mind)"
by Tom Rapp
from the 1969 Pearls Before Swine album These Things Too

Was a time
Lost on Mobius Street
With nowhere to go
Well the times were so low
Couldn't find another rainbow
If you don't want to, I don't mind

Time is gone
When you came along
Disguised as the rain
But I know just how you felt
'Cause no one is ever anybody else
If you don't want to, I don't mind

Took some time
To see your other faces
And I hated you so
It seemed to you that love and death
Were faces of the same event
If you don't want to, I don't mind

All at once
I was alone
But only when you were there
How could the universal song
Be coming out so wrong
But then I knew it by your eyes
Love lasts forever 'till it dies
Let's see what happens when I press this little chromium switch...
