I met a girl and we ran away
I swore I'd make her happy every day
And how I made her cry
Two faces have I

Sometimes mister I feel sunny and wild
Lord I love to see my baby smile
Then dark clouds come rolling by
Two faces have I

One that laughs one that cries
One says hello one says goodbye
One does things I don't understand
Makes me feel like half a man

At night I get down on my knees and pray
Our love will make that other man go away
But he'll never say goodbye
Two faces have I

Last night as I kissed you 'neath the willow tree
He swore he'd take your love away from me
He said our life was just a lie
And two faces have I
Well go ahead and let him try

    My InterpretationAt the time of this album's release he had been very briefly married to a woman from Oregonite Julliene Phillips when he had an affair with a band member. As a man with an insightful moral voice who was approaching the time in life when locked internal doors begin to open and the dark hidden self demands to be dealt with.

    These are ideas that are best understood by metaphor, and Bruce is a master of it. Hit about 35 or 40 and find a copy of "Little Book on the Human Shadow" by Robert Bly and be forever changed!
