Two Way

  • If you feel you have the time
    Come and spend a little bit of it here on my mind
    I'll help you if I can
    I'll be your woman, baby I'll be your man
    But don't you do what you always do
    And close the door on me
    There are riches here and they won't last forever

    Hide yourself away
    And make light of the situation
    It's gotta be two way
    Or it's never gonna work
    Don't do what you say you will
    In spite of the conversation
    It's got to be today
    Or it's never gonna work

    The story has no ending
    Until you decide you can seize your day
    Darkness comes descending
    With the booze and a cigarette lighting your way
    Don't you do what you always do and ask for company
    I've been there myself and I'm not gonna follow

    Hide yourself away
    And make light of the situation
    It's gotta be two way
    Or it's never gonna work
    Don't do what you say you will
    In spite of the conversation
    It's got to be today
    Or it's never gonna work
    Or it's never gonna work

    Don't go silent
    Don't go dark
    Realize you can come around to it
    In a natural arc
    Don't go silent
    Don't go dark
    Don't fade away
    Don't fade away

    Hide yourself away
    And make light of the situation
    It's gotta be two way
    Or it's never gonna, never gonna, never gonna work

    No it's never gonna work

    Hide yourself away
    And make light of the situation
    It's gotta be two way
    Or it's never gonna work
    Don't do what you say you will
    In spite of the conversation
    It's got to be today
    Or it's never gonna work

    Oh oh it's never gonna work
    No it's never gonna workWriter/s: KT TUNSTALL, JAMES BAY
