So excuse me forgetting but these things I do

You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green, or they’re blue

Anyway the thing is what I really mean

Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

The lyrics of the song were penned by Bernie Taupin, long-time writing partner of Elton John. The song is about a man’s love for his partner, but he isn’t sure what exactly it is that he feels. His love is too innocent and naive.

Smarter than the tricks played on your heart

We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart

Adding up the total of a love that’s true

Multiply life by the power of two

A beautiful and classic love song, the lyrics capture the intensity of true love, but also the idea that when we love someone, there is nowhere we want to be except with that person who keeps us safe.

Indigo Girls – Power Of Two

And a silence falls between us

As the shadows steal the light

And wherever you may find it

Wherever it may lead

Just follow your arrow wherever it points
