I've hardly been outside my room in days
'Cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays
And darkness helped until the whiskey wore away
And it was then I realized that 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 'til we're the special two once again

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together
Our hands will not be torn to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together
These arms will not be torn to need another
'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
But 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 I 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,
Ah, but if by chance you change your mind
You know I will not let you down
'Cause we were the special two, and we'll be again

And we will only need each other, we'll breathe together
Our hands will not be torn to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we can only see each other, we'll bleed together
These arms will not be taught to need another's
And 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
Something that could ease the pain
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself
Just remembering, just remembering how we were

When we would only need each other, we'd breathe together
These hands would not be torn 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 torn to need another's
'Cause we're the special two
