This song from Carly Simon's Anthology CD has always been a favorite of mine because it says so much about growing and loving and being there for one another. This page is a tribute to Sisterhood and my 4 best friends.


Two little sisters gazing at the sea
imagining what their futures will be.
The older one says, as her eyes look around,
“I will go as far as the corners of town.
I’ll plant a little garden flowers everywhere
and pluck the most fragrant for my hair.”


Two little sisters gazing at the sea
imagining what their futures will be.
The youngest one says with her eyes opened wide
“I’ll go as far as the corners of the sky,
I’ll gather all the stars each night as they appear
and pick the very brightest one to wear in my ear.”


I didn’t choose you and you didn’t choose me
Who would guess we’re from the same family.


But what will you do when the nights get cold,
When the stars grow dim and your dreams seem old?
What you gonna do when the winter calls,
and your flowers fall from the garden walls?


I’ll come home to you, you’ll come home to me
My love will be your remedy
I’ll choose you and you’ll choose me
We’ll be five daughters dancing by the edge of the sea
(I changed the last line to "five" daughters instead of two)
