"Breaking Us In Two" as written by and Joe Jackson....
Don't you feel like trying something new
Don't you feel like breaking out or breaking us in two
You don't do the things that I do
You want to do the things I can't do
Always something breaking us in two

You and I could never live alone
But don't you feel like breaking out
Just one day on your own
Why does what I'm saying hurt you
I didn't say that we were through
Always something breaking us in two

They say two hearts should beat as one for us
We'll fight it out to see it through
I say that you won't bee too much fun for us
Though it's oh so nice to get advice it's oh so hard to do

Could we be much closer if we tried
We could stay at home and stare into each other's eyes
Maybe we could last an hour
Maybe then we'd see right through
Always something breaking us in two

    General CommentI love this song! I like that it takes some interpretation and isn't straightforward. I've always thought it was one of those 'can't live with them, can't live without them' relationships where they know it would be better for them to split up, despite other people saying how great they are together. I think they've grown apart but it's scary to go it alone and try new things, and neither of them wants to admit that it really is over, even though all the signs are telling them that it is...

    Also, the background instrumentals are just beautiful :)
