Song Lyrics - Two Lives

Updated on November 13, 2011

Living right
Living wrong
I’m living two lives
I’m not sure where I belong

Doing what I should
Sometimes what I shouldn’t
It’s hard to know
When I’m using good judgment

Living on both sides
With two kinds of ways
They don’t know what I know
But one gets my nights
The other gets my days

They live one life
Waiting for me
They both need my love
I need to find some honesty

I can’t make up my mind
I don’t know what to do
My friends think it’s crazy
I’m know it is too

Living on both sides
With two kinds of ways
They don’t know what I know
But one gets my nights
The other gets my days

They’re not sure about it
But they know it’s true
No matter which one I’m with
She knows I’m thinking about you

One is the mother of my children
The other lets me be who I am
But I can’t give them everything
So I give them what I can

      @Ben & Mamadrama (that cracks me up by the way)... thank you for your comments. This thing was written Saturday night after I made a casual comment to my boss. We were drinking at a Sports Bar and I said something like, "I feel like I'm living two lives at once." He said, "There you go dude... new song!" So I wrote it up. It's very simple but complex all at the same time (the song). It's not 100% accurate but at the same time it is dead-on in terms of what I juggle in my life. But everyone has these problems I think. Oh I'm sure some folks have their love life all figured out but many are stuck in confusing and frustrating situations. I try to do what's right but at times it seems like it's all wrong.
