Song to Get You By

I don’t have many cds and I certainly don’t have any fancy new fangled ipod contraptions in my car.  And honestly a lot of times my cd player doesn’t even fucking work–but, that’s neither here nor there.

I had a friend make me some mix tapes and hot damn I play those bitches to death.  But, today I finally went back to some old favorites.  I played A Fine Frenzy’s “One Cell in the Sea”  and then started jamming to Missy Higgins “Sound of White.”  I’m not a HUGE fan of either of those albums.  I prefer both of their latter attempts.  But, there are highlights for sure.

One of those struck a chord deep within me this afternoon.  I listened to it on repeat the WHOLE drive home… 1 hour of the same song.  Yeah, it’s that important to me.

Missy Higgins: The Special Two

I’ve hardly been outside my room in days,
‘Cause I don’t feel that I deserve the sunshine’s rays.
The darkness helped until the whiskey wore away,
And it was then I realised the 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,
Until we’re the special two once again.

And we will only need each other, we’ll bleed together,
Our hands will not be taught to hold another’s,
And we’re the special two!
And we could only see each other, we’ll bleed together,
These arms will not be taught to need other’s,
And 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 would 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,
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 taught to hold another’s,
when 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,
when 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,
Or 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 bleed together,
our hands would not be taught 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 taught to need another’s,
‘Cause we’re the special two.
