"Two of Me, Two of You" as written by and Jackson Browne....
There are two of me
And two of you
Two who have betrayed love
And two who have been true
And together we went crashing through
Every bond and vow and faith we knew
Me and the fool I've been
And the two of you

Of the two of me
One always knew
That I would always love you
Whatever you might do
And the more unfree and troubled you grew
I could feel the whole world splitting in two
Trying to make the room
For the two of you

So like a fragile little child
More than a little lost and wild
How the light would leave the sky when you cried
And returned again when you smiled
And how the light would invade and divide
The darkness I have inside

There were two of me
And two of you
Searching for a passageway
Hidden from our view
And together we went crashing through
Every bond and vow and faith we knew
Me and the fool I've been
And the two of you

    General CommentThis song is about the dualities of personalities and the consequences to life's actions. However, the ambiguousness of some of the lyrics can open this to many interpretations. I read once that Jackson did not like to be ambiguous early in his career but later was proud that his songs could mean different things to different people. As a matter of fact, Jackson said some of his earlier songs mean something different to him now.

    This song has beautiful lyrics as well as vocals. Tremendous song.
