NATION OF TWO

The sounds and the songs
And the photos of you
The books and the bed
And the wallpaper too

The names of the places
We used to go
The words with meanings
Only you and I know

All that reminds me of you
And our nation of two

The plans and the problems
That filled our heads
The nights and the fights
And the things we said

The foolish dreams
And the way things went
The letters I wrote
But never sent

All that reminds me of you
And our nation of two

The bonds of love
That once kept us together
Turned to a whip
Forcing us apart
I kid myself
That you’re to blame
For this cold empty
Feeling in my heart

But hey what about you
And what about our nation of two

"Only one thing counted—The Nation of two. And when that nation ceased to be, I became what I am today and what I always will be, a stateless person." (Kurt Vonnegut in Mother Night)
