Two Hearts Like Ours
written by John Hiatt, Mike Porter

You know I never took pleasure too personally
Never took this love thing to heart
I guess I should've stood up on my own two knees
Begged her not to let it all start

But I never saw her coming she worked it just right
Ooh yeah
A long shot in the dark rang out and the next thing
I knew we were laughing in the daylight

Two hearts like ours should never
be left alone together
The danger's in the meeting as
two hearts like ours start to beating (?)

I used to get my kicks like a hit and run
Just a little ----
I never lived for a kiss til you planted one
Now I can't catch my breath

It's like I spent my whole life just waiting for you
Yeah you
Just when I thought I was all grown up
You got me swapping 'bout old times (?)
Like a little kid in grade school


Spray painting initials on the freeway bridges and signs
To make it official I'm hers she's mine
