lyrics

TWO BY TWO

Wake before the sun comes, you’re going where you must
Where fire is born and dust returns to dust
Light in your eyes boy, dirt beneath your nails
And in your heart belief that love prevails

That girl so fair with ankles bare
You lost her to the wind
She sleeps below so down you go
An end, now, to begin

All you love commit to the ash
All you worked for gone in a flash
You can’t look forward while you’re looking back

Where come the lyre, boy, that led you here today
Now it seems she hasn’t much to say
But no need for further talk, let’s say you’re understood
You’ll have your chance to take her back for good

Just mind the rules, the devil’s tools
Business first at pleasure’s cost
If you should chance one backward glance
All will be lost

All you love commit to the ash
All you worked for gone in a flash
You can’t look forward while you’re looking back

There’ll be no good-byes, boy, that boat won’t slow for you
You tried and failed, it’s more than most would do
So dream a dream of going to by two
Dream a dream of going two by two
