I had a phrase pop into my head around November and started playing with the idea, 'Me Plus You'. So after several days of writing down lines with that concept in mind, I came up with these lyrics. I had the idea of me not being complete without my wife, similar to Napolean Bonaparte's individual soldiers. But, when the pieces are added together, it turns into quite an Army. Mozart's notes don't mean much by themselves, but, taken as a whole, they make quite a composition. Also, the earth is made up of more than just land and a coin has more than just one side. I have added and edited quite a bit, but, this is how it turned out.


Me Plus You

The soldiers under Bonaparte
Are like the music notes of Mozart
They mean little when all by themselves
Their sum is greater than their parts

I used to think I had it all
I now know that wasnít true
Joining you Iíve been walking tall
Weíre something special, me and you

They say one plus one equals two
But Iím not so sure that is true
Just as land and sea make the Earth
Iím not complete without you
Half of anything is no fun
Me plus you equals one

You have a way to reel me back in
When I go off in my childish ways
Weíll be together Ďtil the end
Youíve become my lasting friend

I remind you things are O.K.
When I see you start to worry
We slow to smell the roses some days
Lifeís too short to be in a hurry

They say one plus one equals two
But Iím not so sure that is true
Just as two rails make a railroad
Iím not complete without you
Half of anything is no fun
Me plus you equals one

A bird needs two wings to fly
With just one he falls from the sky
My better half, you keep me aloft
Weíre quite the team, you and I

They say one plus one equals two
But Iím not so sure that is true
Just as two sides make one coin
Iím not complete without you
Half of anything is no fun
Me plus you equals one

I was locked, you were my key
We are the sum of you plus me
Half of anything is no fun
Me plus you equals one
