This is the original version of a song I'm currently working on an acoustic version of with male and female singing parts. Part of a little series I'm working on with 'left of center' love songs. "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" meets 'Tristan and isolde.' With male/female singing, like dialog.

Lyrics here are for the new version, not what you're hearing. The original were pretty lame, and I can't even remember them anyway.

Clean guitars, wimpy drumming. I played everything, so, yeah, sorry about the drumming.


Loving me reminds you of loving her with all your love
And loving you reminds me of being born again with all my love
And loving me makes you feel like a good man under the circumstances
But loving you takes me where no one wins and nothing's fair

I watch myself making you feel like a man again
I'm letting you go back to her only to die again
You're drawn to my strength but I'm not safe like her misery
The damage is done and everyone's going to cry


We watch ourselves turning this all into poetry
I watch myself making you feel like my enemy
We crawl toward our graves, there's no place for our ecstasy
You want me, I want you, forever lost in what might have been


Did we come here to live, did we come here to die
Did we fall in love, did the angels cry
