Lyrics LIFE COULD BE
MORE DELECTABLE
TWO BY TWO,
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG
THEY'RE CORRECTABLE
TWO BY TWO.
WHERE A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL
MIGHT STUMBLE AND FALL,
A COUPLE OF HEARTS
WOULD HAVE NO TROUBLE AT ALL.
I BELIEVE
THAT WE CAN DO MORE
EVENTUALLY
TWO BY TWO.
THE WORLD AT LARGE
RUNS ESSENTIALLY
TWO BY TWO.
LET'S MAKE OUR OUTLOOK
ROSIER,
NOTHING COULD BE
COZIER,
THAN ME AND YOU
TWO BY TWO.

YOU ARE TOO INDEPENDENT,
WHY OH WHY
IS EVERY DAY
YOUR PERSONAL
FORTH OF JULY?
THE FUTURE
WOULD NOT SEEM SO DARK
IF YOU WOULD TAKE TO HEART
THE SEATING CHART
ON NOAH'S ARK.

HELPLESS HEARTS
CAN PERFORM AGAIN
TWO BY TWO,
THE COLDEST NIGHT
CAN BE WARM AGAIN
TWO BY TWO.
IF YOU WANT
TO RAISE A FAMILY,
AT LEAST IT IS SHOWN
YOU HAVE TO HAVE TWO,
YOU JUST CAN'T DO IT
ALONE.

ANYONE
CAN CHANGE HIS FEARS
TO BRAVERY
TWO BY TWO,
EACH BITTER PILL
CAN BE SAVORY
TWO BY TWO.
EACH BATTLE
CAN BE WINNABLE,
SIN
TWICE AS SINNABLE,
SO FOLLOW THROUGH...
TWO BY TWO,
ME AND YOU,
SIDE BY SIDE,
HAND IN HAND,
ARM TO ARM,
THAT'S THE IDEA!
MAKE YOUR OUTLOOK
ROSIER,
NOTHING COULD BE
COZIER,
THAN ME AND YOU,
TWO BY TWO,
BY TWO!
