Life In Song

Two Strong Hearts

The day was coming to an end. Steph wouldn’t have to get up for work in the morning because it was her rostered day off but Mark knew he had to get some sleep before heading to work in less than five hours.
“I really need to get some sleep babe, I can’t go to work with no sleep, not after the last 24 hours.”
“Did I wear you out?”
“Yeah but it was the best darn wearing out I’ve ever had.”
“Do you want me to leave you alone?”
“Never.”

The two lovers lay arm in arm, Steph tracing little circles on Mark’s chest while he rubbed his hand across her back.
With the radio on they sweet duet serenaded them.

No need analyze this kind of emotion
‘Cause it comes naturally
A simple case of feeling love and devotion
So tell me tenderly

Steph: It’s true, if I spent less time analyzing and more time talking to you this bullshit wouldn’t have happened.
Mark: Love and devotion, that sums it up baby.

I want to give my life to you
I want to feel my blood run through you
And oh I want to touch you
Over and over and over again

Steph: My life is yours forever baby
Mark: I want to touch you
Steph: You are.
Mark: All over, from the tips of your toes to
Steph: The spot several inches from where you are is a good stopping point!
Mark: Oh I need sleep, but ok maybe!

We’ve got two strong hearts
We stick together like the honey and the bee
You and me
We’ve got two strong hearts
Reaching out forever like a river to the sea
Running free

Steph: We’ve got two strong hearts
Mark: They are nearly close enough together to beat as one.
Steph: If I climb on top they will be even closer.
Mark: We could stick together in that position.
Steph: Now you’re talking.

I feel there’s no need for compromising my reputation
When you lead me astray
I’m proud to be a part of this fascination
When I hear you say

Steph: If you haven’t led me astray yet I’m hoping you will
Mark: I’ll lead you down the garden path
Steph: As long as you don’t forget the blanket, I’m not laying on the grass.
Mark: I’m fascinated
Steph: So you should be!

I want to be there to guide you
I’m going to feel my love inside you
And oh oh I want to touch you
Over and over and over again

Steph: You’re what in where?
Mark: Put our hearts together and you might find out!
Steph: Well that’s definitely touching me.
Mark: Over and over and over and over and over.

We’ve got two strong hearts
We stick together like the honey and the bee
You and me
We’ve got two strong hearts
Reaching out forever like a river to the sea
Running free

We’ve got two strong hearts
We stick together like the honey and the bee
You and me
We’ve got two strong hearts
Reaching out forever like a river to the sea

We’ve got two strong hearts
We stick together like the honey and the bee
You and me
We’ve got two strong hearts
Reaching out forever like a river to the sea
Running free

Steph: I can feel your heart beat, it’s differently strong
Mark: Well it’s surely elevated
Steph: I feel elevated too!
Mark: OOOHHHhhh
Steph: There’s that touch again. I thought you needed sleep.
Mark: Four hours in enough!! I’ll get more when they finally bury me Underground.
