We've got scars on our faces and blood on our hands
We're too fallen from grace not to know where we stand
But your hands on my body your body with mine
Makes me think maybe things could be different this time

We don’t know where we’re going no captain’s aboard
Yes the wind just keeps blowing this boat toward the shore
But I’m sure when we land we will land somewhere sweet
With no crew but the two of us under the sheet

And God knows it’s been rough
This wringer we’ve been through
Could it be enough just to be with you
Lean into the safety in numbers
Sometimes the best one is two

Are we fools to come creeping where angels won’t tread
Stir the dogs that lie sleeping beside us in bed
And you said I was trouble but trouble’s all right
We can walk through the dark rooms and turn on the lights

We are old and we’re older we’re wiser than wise
Got no wings on our shoulders just stars in our eyes
We could rise up to meet it whatever may come
It’s a basic equation just add one to one

And God knows it’s been rough
This wringer we’ve been through
But it could be more than enough
Just to be with you
This safety in numbers
Comes from the sum of us
Sometimes the best one is two
