Lyrics

Two plus two
Me and you
Strolling down the avenue
I never thought that this was meant to be
And all the times we looked into each other’s eyes
I did it again
I did it again
I did it for you

Holding on to a song
I guess it’s time we passed it on
‘Cause one of us keeps changing every day

And all the times we told our sweet and subtle lies
I did it again
I did it again
I did it for you

How long before we turn to let love fly away
How long before we turn to live another day

And all the times we broke our hearts to spite ourselves
I did it again
I did it again
I did it for you
