It Takes Two - Lyrics

You've changed,
You're daring,
You're different in the woods.
More sure,
More sharing,
You're getting us through the woods.
If you could see,
You're not the man who started
And much more open-hearted
Than I knew you to be.

It takes two.
I thought one was enough,
It's not true.
It takes two of us.
She came through.
When the journey was rough
It took you.
It took two of us.
It takes care,
It takes patience and fear and despair
To change.
Though you swear to change
You can tell if you do.

It takes two.

You've changed.
You're thriving.
There's something about the woods.
Not just
Surviving
You're blossoming in the woods.
At home I'd fear
We'd stay the same for ever

And then out here
You're passionate, charming, considered, clever.

It takes one
To begin
But then once you begun.
It takes two of you.
It's no fun
But what needs to be done
You can do
When there's two of you.
If I dare
It's because I'm becoming
Aware of us

As a pair of us,
Each accepting a share.
What's there,

We've changed,
We're strangers,
I'm meeting you in the woods.
Who minds
What dangers
I know we'll get passed the woods.
And once we're passed,
Let's hope that changes last
Beyond woods,
Beyond witches and slippers and hoods,
Just the two of us,
Beyond lies
Safe at home with our beautiful prize,
Just the few of us,
It takes trust,
It takes just a bit more and we're done.
We want four, we had none, we've got three,
We need one,
It takes two.
