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

CHORUS:
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

REPEAT CHORUS

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

REPEAT CHORUS
