The Special Two Lyrics

by Missy Higgins

I've hardly been outside my room in days
'Cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays
The darkness helped until the whiskey wore away
And it was then I realize the conscience never fades
When you're young you have this image of your life
That you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross
And if you happen to you wake completely lost
But I will fight for you, be sure that I will fight
Until we're the special two once again

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together
Our hands would not be taught to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we can only see each other, we'll breathe together
These arms will not be taught to need another's
'Cause we're the special two

I remember someone old once said to me
That lies will lock you up with truth the only key
I was comfortable and warm inside my shell
And couldn't see this place could soon become my hell
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
Well, my guess the answer is don't do it in the first place
I know, I'm not deserving of your trust from you right now
But if by chance you change your mind
You know I will not let you down
'Cause we were the special two and will be again

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together
Our hands would not be taught to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we can only see each other, we'll breathe together
These arms will not be taught to need another's
We're the special two

I step outside my mind's eyes for a minute
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease
Or something that could ease the pain
But nothing cures the hurt, you, you bring on bye yourself
Just remembering, just remembering how we were

And we would only need each other, we'd bleed together
These hands would not be taught to hold another's
We were the special two
And we could only see each other, we'd bleed together
These arms would not be taught to need another's
'Cause we're the special two
