Two are in the shadows, two are in the light
Two become as one, two hearts in the night.
Time is of the two, time is who they are
Time is just the reason two can go so far.
They know each other, who has been there more
Who's the one who cares, two will know the score
Two are in the vision, two are in the dream
Two become as love, two hearts make it clean.
One good year of fun, twenty three in pain
Who will feel alone? Who will love again?
Daddy lives in wonder, momma lives in fear
How could it be gone, after all these years
Two are in frustration, weakening the soul
Two will find temptation reaching for their goal.
Who will be the weaker, who will be the strong?
Who will be the wise, who will be the wrong?
Is the kettle boiling, is that why it's gone?
why does love go bad, why does love go wrong?
Why do people stay, live inside the pain
Is it just a debt, could we be insane?
Why do people cry, couldn't we just laugh?
Counting up the years, till we're done at last.
When the kids are grown, and all have gone away
Is that all there is, is there Love today?
