Two out of Three Ain’t Bad…..


“Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad”

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of here

And maybe you can cry all night
But that’ll never change the way I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn’t make me leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I’m tired of words and I’m too hoarse to shout
But you’ve been cold to me so long
I’m crying icicles instead of tears

And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way
I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
‘Cause two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad
‘Cause two out of three ain’t bad

You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You’ll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you’re looking for a ruby
In a mountain of rocks
But there ain’t no Coupe de Ville hiding
At the bottom of a Cracker Jack box

I can’t lie
I can’t tell you that I’m something I’m not
No matter how I try
I’ll never be able to give you something
Something that I just haven’t got

There’s only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I’ll never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back, ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her
Not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kep on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way
I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
‘Cause two out of three ain’t bad
Don’t be sad
‘Cause two out of three ain’t bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere

Meatloaf had it right………………………………….

We’ve all been part of relationships where the love has waned…no longer sustaining us day in and day out.  Either we’ve had our hearts broken through betrayal or faced unimaginable abuse.  The love once freely given, slowly peters out due to constant battles of the spirit.  You think you knew the person but in reality all that you fell in love with was a shell.

So, what makes us fall in love again? Is it the thrill of the chase? The unknown? Thinking that maybe…just maybe this time will be the last time….that the person you fall for won’t contaminate your heart. That trust will thrive as the love grows?

I think sometimes….sometimes an individual will stay with someone out of obligation, and yes perhaps even comfort.  Maybe the person at one point in time was safe and you needed to feel that..craved the security.

Trust me…..it’s scary delving into the unknown, and yes, you eventually find someone who becomes your security blanket.  Perhaps the idea of that special someone being gone (permanently gone) scare the living daylights out of you.  We all want to be someone’s everything…their fire and all-consuming passion.  We all want to be someone’s heart.

Even if it means breaking our own.
