Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon & Sally Taylor
This song also On: Reflections

We were so strong then
We built our house on our love
We had a heart on the hill

Love was so proud then
We lived in the clouds when
The tower was crumbling down
Around us on the hill

Oh, we've got to leave this town together
Clean out another house
Amity
Amity is not too much to ask

We reach to the sky still
In hopes we'd be able
To see the bigger picture later on

But we tumbled down
Jack 'n Jill all around
As the valley swallowed up
All the dreams we had made

Oh, see the lighthouse in the distance
On some farther shore

We were so strong then
We built our house on our love
We had a heart on the hill

Love was so proud then
We lived in the clouds when
The tower was crumbling down
Around us on the hill

Storyline:


In a knowing film adaptation of Mona Simpson's widely praised, if not often wildly eventful, first novel, Susan Sarandon is show-stopping as the 14-year-old heroine's mother and main nemesis. And Natalie Portman, who proves her mettle in a fully formed dramatic role, does a terrific job of holding her own in the film's battle of wills. Even when the material meanders, Wayne Wang supplies insightful, affectionate direction, just as he did for "The Joy Luck Club." A women's picture made with feeling and acted with great flair. — Janet Maslin (New York Times)
