Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

195/2

I’m changing things up a bit today and turning this one over to the pros… two folks we dig and a song that means a lot to us and really says it all. Three may be magic but two has power. We’re so focused on two.

I hope Amy & Emily don’t mind me pushing this pirated video around but I had to go with a live version. Last summer when this whole thing was making itself known, we sat in an audience similar and sang along. There was power in that performance and power in that room. Didn’t matter if you hit all the words or all the notes. Others filled in the gaps and carried you. It was beautiful. Doesn’t it feel great to sing along? ~Jacqui

Power of Two Indigo Girls

Now the parking lot is empty
Everyone’s gone someplace
I pick you up and in the trunk I’ve packed
A cooler and a two-day suitcase
Cause there’s a place we like to drive
Way out in the country
Five miles out of the city limit we’re singing
And your hand’s upon my knee

So we’re okay, we’re fine
Baby I’m here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I’m stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
Adding up the total of a love that’s true
Multiply life by the power of two

You know the things I’m afraid of
I’m not afraid to tell
And if we ever leave a legacy
It’s that we loved each other well
Cause I’ve seen the shadows of so many people
Trying on the treasures of youth
But a road that’s fancy and fast ends in a fatal crash
And I’m glad we got off to tell you the truth

Cause we’re okay, we’re fine
Baby I’m here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I’m stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
Adding up the total of a love that’s true
Multiply life by the power of two

Emily:
All the shiny little trinkets of temptation
Something new instead of something old
All you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface
And it’s fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Amy:
Make new friends but
Keep the old
But remember
What is gold
What is gold
What is gold

Now we’re talking bout a difficult thing
And your eyes are getting wet
I took us for better and I took us for worse
Now don’t you ever forget
Now the steel bars between me and a promise
Suddenly bend with ease
And the closer I’m bound in love to you
The closer I am to free

So we’re okay, we’re fine
Baby I’m here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
I’m stronger than a monster beneath your bed
I’m smarter than the tricks played on your heart
We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
Adding up the totals of a love that’s true
Multiply life by the power of two
