TWO in ONE

Written by: David Byrne



Give me two in one,
Like shower gel and Shampoo,
Like Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s.

Rain dripped from my cap today,
It dripped back into my boyhood,
A different cap but the same cold drip,

Two in one, me and the boy, 
Walking the same, on a road.
Thinking the same – almost.


What’s really different now?
Nothing much I guess?
The indifferent drizzle is the same.


Give me two in one,
Like then and now,
Like Ash Today; and tomorrow Roses.
