"Birds of a Feather" as written by Joy Williams and John White....
Where she walks, no flowers bloom
He's the one I see right through
She's the abscess on my lip
The splinter in my fingertip

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?

She's the sea I'm sinkin' in
He's the ink under my skin
Sometimes I can't tell where I am
Where I leave off and he begins

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?

Oh, we're a pretty, pretty pair
Yes, we are
All, all the king's horses
And all of his men
Couldn't tear us apart

Dancing with a ball and chain
Through it all we still remain
Butterflies around the flame
Till ashes, ashes, we fade away

    Lyric CorrectionThe line 'abscess on my lip' is supposed to be Absynth which is a very hard to drink alcohol.

    General CommentAnother tune that's gotta be about marriage.
    The ups and downs, the things it does to us and how it changes us.
    For better AND for worse.
