  • It's been a minute since I called you
    Just to hear the answer phone
    Yeah, I know that you won't get this
    But I'll leave a message so I'm not alone
    This morning I woke up still dreaming
    With memories playing through my head
    You'll never know how much I miss you
    The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead

    But you once told me, "Don't give up
    You can do it day by day"
    And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away

    So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
    Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
    I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    One life for the two of us

    I could feel your blood run through me
    You're written in my DNA
    Looking back in every mirror
    I know you'll be waiting, I'll see you again

    But you once told me, "Don't give up
    You can do it day by day"
    And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away, fade away

    So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
    Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
    I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
    I'll be living one life for the two of us

    I promised you I'd do this
    So all of this is all for you
    Oh, I swear to God you're living
    Through everything I'll ever do

    So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
    Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
    I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
    I'll be living one life for the two of us
    One life for the two of us

    We'll end just like we started
    Just you and me and no one else
    I will hold you where my heart is
    One life for the two of us Writer/s: Andrew William Jackson, Bryn Louie Christopher, Louis William Tomlinson, Mark Duck-Blackwell
