Two People

TWO PEOPLE - Written by Carroll Bryant



Every time I take a breath
It feels like I have nothing left to give

Your words slow dance in my ears
The emotion that I feel won’t live

It won’t live to see the day
You take my breath away again
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

Every time I see with my eyes
I see the clear blue skies dancing with the dawn

Your words slice into my bones
Leaving me all alone where pictures are drawn

We won’t die fast enough
For me to forget about all this stuff
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

Every time I take a breath
I feel there is absolutely nothing left
There is absolutely nothing left to give

Your words slow dance in my ears
 Leaving me to the ending years
Of a life that has doomed me where I live

I won’t live to see the day
When you will take my breath away again
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
And this is how two people behave
Falling victim to their own slave
That lives in the conscious heart somewhere

That slave is love and fear

This is how two people play
Never listen to the things they say
To each other … or even to themselves

This is how it has to end
State of shock is the only state I can get in
Never will
Never again

This is how two people act
They carry on as a matter of fact
Turning their heads from the love they were meant to share
