Lyrics:

Thought that my pride was on the mend
Before it shattered
I'd like to think that I'd fix it on my own
But that's the matter
'Cause I'd go and throw it all away
To save my ego
And the empty prize is I get to be alone
So what do I know?

But when I lose the way
You keep me aiming true
There's nothing out of view
(Jump on through over to you!)

You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
Though the road's been long and winding, I'm so proud to call you family
You're my ally, olly oxen free to take you with me
I'm just making up the hours, how I needed you so badly

Thought I could make it on my own, not even nearly
But I'm scared to say that there ain't no other way
(But now I see it all so clearly)
I am no island, I'm a piece of something bigger
And I work the best when your sweet heart gets to rest next to my bitter
(Oh, it's so much better this way)

So we keep our hands held tight
And shoot toward the moon
You might catch a glimpse or two
(Break right through over to you!)

You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
Though the road's been long and winding, I'm so proud to call you family
You're my ally, olly oxen free to take you with me
I'm just making up the hours, how I needed you so badly
You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
I've been hopelessly awaiting what was always right beside me
You're my ally, alleyway between the peaks and valleys
I'm just making up the hours, how I needed you so badly

(Jump on through over to you)

Keep my head held high
Green and red so bright
Illuminate the night
(Break right through over to you)

You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
I've been waiting all this time to say I needed you so badly
You're my ally, olly oxen free to take you with me
So it's true, there's nothing left to do
(Jump on through over to you)
You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
I couldn't find myself without you, you just came along and saved me
You're my ally, alleyway between the peaks and valleys
I'm just making up the hours, how I needed you so badly

You're my ally-alli, I will take you in so gladly
You're my ally-alli, I'm so free to take you with me
