Power Of Two

This song is by Indigo Girls and appears on the album Swamp Ophelia (1994) and on the live album 1200 Curfews (1995).

Now the parking lot is empty
Everyone's gone someplace
I pick you up and in the trunk I've packed
A cooler and a two day suitcase
'Cause there's a place we like to drive
Way out in the country
And five miles out of the city limit we're singin'
And your hand's upon my knee

So we're okay, we're fine
Baby, I'm here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
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

I know the things that I am afraid of
I'm not afraid to tell
And if we ever leave a legacy
It's that we loved each other well
'Cause I've seen the shadows of so many people
Trying on the treasures of youth
But a road that's fancy and fast ends in a fatal crash
And I'm glad we got off, to tell you the truth

'Cause we're okay, we're fine
Baby I'm here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed
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

All the shiny little trinkets of temptation (Big old)
Something new instead of something old (Keep me old)
But all you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface (But remember)
And it's fool's gold (What is gold?)
Fool's gold (What is gold?)
Fool's gold (What is gold?)

Now we're talking about a difficult thing
And your eyes are getting wet
And I took us for better and I took us for worse
Don't you ever forget it (And now the steel bars)
The steel bars between me and a promise (Between me and a promise)
Suddenly bend with ease
And the closer I'm bound in love to you
The closer I am to free (Free)

So we're okay, we're fine
Baby, I'm here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Look at them together then we'll take 'em apart
Adding up the total of a love that's true
Multiply life by the power of two
