I've hardly been outside my room in days
'Cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine rays
The Darkness helped until the whiskey wore away
And it was then I realized the conscience that never fades

When you're young you have this image of your life
That you'd 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

[Chorus]
And we will only need each other
We'll bleed together
Our hands will not be taught to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we can only see each other
We'll breathe together
These arms will not be taught to need another's
'Cause 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 could 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

[Chorus]

I step outside my minds eyes for a minute
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease or someone that could ease the pain
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself
Just remembering, just remembering how we were

[Chorus]

    General Comment:Everything about her is great - her music, her writing, her voice. She sounds so real, so saturated, so much older than her 21 years. I love her for her honesty.
    And she's just such a cute little button as well!

    General Comment:Missy is awesome.
    Missy has a great voice. Her voice is a part of how awesome she is. The accent for me is a sign of her being comfortable with her music. She is able to make her music "feel like home" and she is also an amazing songwriter.
    Awesome live - World Vision Tsunami Appeal Concert (tops)

    I agree arianrhod she is a cute little button :p

    Go Aussie!

    General Comment:I lvve the fact that Missy's an Aussie, we need more artists. She's an awesome singer and songwriter. She's so incredibly honest in all her music.
    This song is about having hurt the one person in the world that you can't live without, and wanting everything to go back to how it was.
    This is my favourite song on the album too:)

    General Comment:This is a beautiful song about loosing the trust of a loved one and describing all the dreams and emotions involved with this one person. It presents the mistake being made and how she feels strong remorse and regrets wat she did "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 will be again." It also describes how when two people are together that were made for each other feel and how nothing should get between them and just no one else will do

    General Comment:I love this song.
    I believe she cheated on him.

    I remember someone old once said to me: “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.

    This part made it clear to me that it was about her being unfaithful.

    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

    This part also - she doesn't deserve his trust.
    I really like this song a lot. For a while though, I couldn't listen to it. It was playing on the radio shortly after my boyfriend broke up with me because I cheated on him and he found out.. I cried so much and then I couldn't listen to it anymore.

    I actually really like her accent too. A lot of people think it's way too yob.. but I think she's great.
