John and I were taking a road trip. One of our first. Still working out the kinks in our relationship, power struggle, battle of the creatives, we decided to write a song where we had to alternate lyrical lines. No one was allowed to edit the words. We then improvised in the studio and came up with the song in about 2 takes. And we still like it. And we still like each other. There’s a magic to both of them.

Lyrics

 What is time? A clock on the wall.
Is that true? I don't recall.
It's been so long since I've touched your leg
Where are you? Round hole square peg

In a life full of promises, lessons do return
Tell me no lies and I'll see you don't burn

How may miles until we arrive?
Too many aisles, never learned how to drive
Fasten your seat belt, I don't want to plan
Reverse the directions, out woman, in man

In a life full of promises, lessons do return
Tell me no lies and I'll see you don't burn


I'll give you the moon, but I want the sun
All of us equal, no one outdone
I'll give you the moon, but I want the sun
And when we want neither, the project's begun


What is love? Tinsel and rocks
I think it goes further than miles and clocks.
I['ll give you the moon, but I want the sun
And when we want neither, the project's begun
