it takes two

who was I before you
before the scent of your soft neck grazed my lips
before your blue, blue eyes sent me spinning
spinning off into I-do-not-know-where?
your hand leading me
my hands eager for the warmth and the certainty of you

who was I, darlin’, do you remember?
you must have seen me in my red dress and thought something
you must have made some plan, to take me
to I-do-not-know-where

but then, you always told me
it takes two, baby

baby, it took two
