- LyricsI lose some sales and my boss won't be happy
But I can't stop listening to the sound
Of two soft voices blended in perfection
From the reels of this record that I found
Every day there's a boy in the mirror
- LyricsI'd rather dance with you
than talk with you,
so why don't we just move into the other room.
There's space for us to shake,
and 'hey, I like this tune'.
- LyricsIf you wanna be my friend
You want us to get along
Please do not expect me to
Wrap it up and keep it there
The observation I am doing could
- LyricsShe'll be gone soon you can have me for yourself
But do give, just give me today
Or you will just scare me away
What we built is bigger than the sum of two
But somewhere I lost count of my own
- LyricsSo we meet again after several years
Several years of separation
Moving on, moving around
Did we spend this time chasing the other's tail
Singing Ohohohoh, I could never belong to you
