Times Two

from Fugitives

No, it's not that I've forgotten you
It only seems that way
Because you're young
And your days go by
So fast
Well, I tried to just a little
Cause I knew you'd be OK
In my bid to make goodbye
A simple task

And you can look out for each other
Since there's two of you
And there's safety there in numbers
Since there's two of you
And I thought this would be easier
Since there's two of you

It's twice as hard
Twice as lonely
Twice as far away
Twice the sound of your voices
Times two

I'm imagining your prom nights
And some shy young men
In tux and tails with flowers
And with little much to say
And I only hope us grown-ups
With our brittle little hearts
Make it clear that there must be
Another way

And you can look out for each other
Since there's two of you
And there's safety there in numbers
Since there's two of you
And I thought this would be easier
Since there's two of you

It's twice as hard
Twice as lonely
Twice as far away
Twice the sound of your voices
Times two

When I close my eyes
I see you both and think about
The times you made me laugh
Times two
Simple fact
Simple math

Twice as hard
Twice as lonely
Twice as far away
Twice the sound of your voices
Times two
