House For Two

We often hope that through the passing of time our relationships will stand true. That no matter what challenges befall us, we’ll be able to come through on the other end, hand in hand.

I’ve watched people stay together despite themselves, and spread apart when they ought to fight for each other. Yet I still find it within me to hope beyond hope that my invested love will carry on throughout my life.

This song is a nod towards the unseeable future. A vow to light a beacon in the distance that we can both return to no matter what storms push us apart.

Lyrics:

Say you’ll be mine, wherever this road takes us
When the house is for sale, and the kids are all grown
Say you’ll be mine, I’m not sure if I’ll believe you
But every little bit helps, if it all goes to hell

If suddenly I’m cynical, or critical of you
Thats not the version of me I wanna be
I just wanna show you how my heart has grown

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you

Say I am yours unconditionally
And we’ll learn what that means
Probably the hard way
So I am yours for better or for worse
We’re scared that things will change,
Or that they’ll always stay the same

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you

You’re not my mother you’re not my child nor my prize
You’re just a little bit of the good life
All we are is all we dare to be alone
So won’t you call me home

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you
