One

from Actually Not

first it happened slowly
then quickly came
unveiled as madness
disguised as something sane
he never saw it happen
she never meant it to
he wrapped her up in his life
she stuck to it like glue
round and round they spin
weaving in the night
tapestry will envelop them
they'll fight the good fight

one heart cannot hold all of this
one man's grace is another man's hell
two souls can melt together
till one can no longer find itself

they kept up appearances
for family and friends
he covered her soul
she put up no defense
we all began to notice
unmistakable signs
they were never in the same room
at the very same time
and in the hiding of their bedroom
one hybrid voice was heard
two would shed their clothing
one body would emerge

Chorus

round and round they spin
weaving in the night
tapestry will envelop them
they'll fight the good fight

Chorus
