A songwriters notebook

Between The Two of Us

What did our children ever do to me and you

to justify what we are putting them through? 

you can hate me if you need to, hate me if you must
But can’t we keep the pain -
between the two of us?

Our friends are changing uniforms and moving to their teams
defending and offending, when they think that’s what we need
And years of care and kindness are clearly not enough
when people feel they need to choose-
between the two of us

She doesn’t even know you she is not your enemy
She only sees the things that you couldn’t see in me
When she found me broken, she stopped to pick me up
Can’t we keep our anger -
between the two of us?

He seems like a good guy, I’d like to shake his hand
Buy him a whiskey and get to know the man
How did it ever happen that you lost faith in me this much?
After all the love that was -
between the two of us
After all the love that was -
between the two of us
