"two hearts are better than one" as written by and Aimme C Argote....
i hope you come & stay with me
we can camp under the old fig tree
i’ll draw yr bath & i will fix yr tea
all for the girl who said that she would marry me

baby if we cut out what’s between us, all the miles & the
mountain tops
i know that we could count on it
honey, we could live a life of cowardice, or we could build a
little bower nest
something to believe in
besides this awful mess

i got this anchor on my finger now
i got yr blood pumping through my veins & still somehow
when i am with you dear, i cannot breathe
i gave my heart but then you took my lungs from me

baby get on an aeroplane to napoli
let’s buy some land & start a family, whatever you ain’t never had
honey, we could stay in bed for hours, talkin shit & telling stupid jokes
& working on our garden
where we will sow
all of our restless hope

    General Commentaimee sure does know how to stir up a girl's emotions.

    i've got this anchor on my finger now ?
    i've got your blood pumping through my veins and still somehow

    also, i think where it says "cut our ways between us" it might say "if we could have worked between us". i'm not sure though.

    General CommentMs. Ark does indeed have an anchor on her finger now. She's got it tattooed on her ring finger.

    General Commentmostly just little differences i hear, but i won't get into all that. the main bits, i hear as:

    baby, if we cut out what's between us
    all the miles and the mountain tops
    i know that we could count on it

    i got this anchor on my finger now
    i got your blood pumping through my veins and still somehow
    when i am with you, dear, i cannot breath
    i gave my heart, and then you took my lungs from me

    General Commentalso, think she's saying "where we will sow all of our restless hope," in accordance with working on the garden...

    General CommentSounds to me like she's a married woman ("I've got this anchor on my finger, now")

    but she's in love with someone else ("honey, we could live a life of cowardess / or we could build a little bower nest / something to believe in / besides this awful mess")

    and fantasizes about running away together ("we'll get a little plane to Napoli / we'll buy some land a build a family")

    It's heart-breaking. She sounds like she's on the verge of tears throughout the whole song

    General Commenti don't think that she's in love with someone else. i don't think she's talking about a literal marriage. i never saw it as being about anyone besides herself and whoever she's referring to.
