  • This morning under awaking glow
    The sun filled our room like December snow
    Like morning through an old window
    There's a place in your head I will always know

    To the same world born two of a kind
    If it's on your mind, it'll be on mine ?cause
    I know you well
    Like the soil in the ground

    Grass grown in the shadow of a blow
    And if the blow will never toll
    You and me grow old
    I hope we'll live to tell

    How you know I know you knew I know you well
    Down under, beneath the softened skin
    Where the words we whisper sink in
    It's no wonder the way the words still ring

    Sure as sin, it's not a secret thing
    To the same world born two of a kind
    If it's on your mind, it'll be on mine ?cause
    I know you well

    Like the soil in the ground
    Grass grown in the shadow of a blow
    And if the blow will never toll
    You and me grow old

    I hope we'll live to tell
    How you know I know you knew I know new york 1991
    Here in the same room for so long
    Out of the cold November

    Still as a passport picture
    Still as a passport picture
    To the same world born two of a kind
    If it's on your mind, it'll be on mine ?cause

    I know you well
    Like the soil in the ground
    Grass grown in the shadow of a blow
    And if the blow will never toll

    You and me grow old
    I hope we'll live to tell
    How you know I know you knew I know you well Writer/s: ADAM L. SCHLESINGER, CHRIS COLLINGWOOD
