One Can Have A Broken Heart, Livin’ In Misery

Adult, Back View, Black Leather Jacket

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: ANGUISH/MISERY/TORMENT

I am going to come clean with you – I wanted to find a song that was the opposite to all of these things – but slipped in one of those words. Well, I think I found one! And it just happens to be one of the best songs to do a karaoke duet to – so Jack will be happy with my choice!

This is Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston singing the joyful “It Takes Two”….and although it has that word “misery” in the lyrics it is not at all miserable! Enjoy your Sunday!!!

[Her:] One can have a dream, baby
[Him:] Two can make that dream so real
[Her:] One can talk about bein’ in love
[Him:] Two can say how it really feels
[Her:] One can wish upon a star
[Him:] Two can make that wish come true, yeah
[Her:] One can stand alone in the dark
[Him:] Two can make the light shine through

It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby
Me and you, just takes two
It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two

[Her:] One can have a broken heart, livin’ in misery
[Him:] Two can really ease the pain like a perfect remedy
[Her:] One can be alone in a car, on a night like these all alone
[Him:] Two can make just any place seem just like bein’ at home

It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby
Me and you, just takes two
It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two

Just takes two, just takes two

[Her:] One can go out to a movie, lookin’ for a special treat
[Him:] Two can make that single movie somethin’ really kinda sweet
[Her:] One can take a walk in the moonlight, thinkin’ that it’s really nice
[Him:] But two walkin’ hand-in-hand is like addin’ just a pinch of spice
