This song is by Jefferson Airplane and appears on the album Surrealistic Pillow (1967).

It's time you walked away and set me free--
I must move away, 'n' leave you be.
It has been good to us my friend,
Wait, and see how it will end.
We come and go as we please.
(We come and go as we please)
(That's how it has to be).

Here in this ocean, the near and holy,
Too many days I've left unstoned.
If you don't mind, happiness
Purple pleasure-fields in the sun
Ah don't you know I'm runnin' home
(Don't you know I'm runnin' home)
(To a place, for you unknown).

I take great peace in your sitting there.
Searching for myself, I find a place there.
I see the people of the world,
Where they are and what they could be.
I can but dance behind your smile
(I can but dance behind your smile)
(To the other world---to me, for a while)
