Song title: Two hearts


Two hearts - Album

I went out walking the other day
Seen a little girl crying along the way
She’d been hurt so bad
said she’d never love again
Someday your crying girl will end
And you’ll find once again

Two hearts are better than one
Two hearts girl get the job done
Two hearts are better than one

Once I spent my time playing tough guy scenes
But I was living in a world of childish dreams
Someday these childish dreams must end
To become a man and grow up to dream again
Now I believe in the end

Two hearts are better than one...

Sometimes it might seem like it was planned
For you to roam empty hearted through this land
Though the world turns you hard and cold
There’s one thing mister that I know
That’s if you think your heart is stone
And that you’re rough enough to whip this world alone
Alone buddy there ain’t no peace of mind
That’s why I’ll keep searching till I find my special one

Two hearts are better than one…


Two hearts - Outtake

Spotted her pretty face here in the middle of a crowded department store
I fight over to the perfume department and out the swinging doors
And out on the street I let her walk on by, the girls they look so good
??? babe you look...girl you look so lonely ???

Don't you know that two hearts are better than one
Oh baby two hearts are better than one
And I got some true love to get the job done
Now darling two hearts are better than one
Oh yeah, yeah two hearts are better than one
Oh baby two hearts say you're the lonely one
And I got two arms to get the job done
Now darling two hearts are better than one
Two hearts are better than one
Oh yeah, two hearts are better than one
