"Two Lives" as written by and Mccaughey....
I tried to love two women
I thought it could be fun
I wanted twice the pleasure
I found enough in one
But when the pleasure doubled
the pain increased by ten
Now I'm back to finding one love again

I went to mass each morning
each night I drowned in gin
I wanted to be close to God
but not at the expense of sin
Cause sinning's such a comfort
and the Lord can be so rough
Well I guess just one religion's enough

People say a cat can live nine lives Oh ho ho
Well I thought I could get away with two, but no
A two lives man's always on the run
He's missing out on all the fun
And after all is said and done
Two lives are no better than one

You can try to be two people
You can try to make ends meet
but just when you think you're pretty hot
you'll melt under the heat
It won't matter if you're together
It won't matter if you're stoned
You'll wind up with just yourself before too long
