I've hardly been outside my room in days,
'cause i don't feel that i deserve the sunshine's rays.
The darkness helped until the whiskey wore away,
And it was then i realized the conscience never fades.
When you're young you have this image of your life:
That you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife.
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross,
And if you happen to you wake completely lost.
But i will fight for you, be sure that
I will fight until we're the special two once again.

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together,
Our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
'cause we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together,
These arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

I remember someone old once said to me:
"that lies will lock you up with truth the only key."
But i was comfortable and warm inside my shell,
And couldn't see this place could soon become my hell.
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
Well i guess the answer is don't do it in the first place.
I know i'm not deserving of your trust from you right now,
But if by chance you change your mind you know i will not
Let you down 'cause we were the special two, and will be again.

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together,
Our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
'cause we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together,
These arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

I step outside my mind's eye's for a minute.
And i look over me like a doctor looking for disease,
Or something that could ease the pain.
But nothing cures the hurt you bring on by yourself,
Just remembering, just remembering how we were...

When we would only need each other, we'd bleed together,
These hands would not be taught to hold another's,
We we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'd bleed together,
These arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

Missy Higgins singles chronology

"The Special Two" is a song by Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins and the third single released from her debut album, The Sound of White. The single was released in Australia on 4 April 2005 and entered the ARIA singles chart at #2 unable to topple Jesse McCartney's "Beautiful Soul" from the top spot. The song was written by Higgins. She has said of the lyrics, "Basically I made a big mistake [...] I fell into a lump of depression, locking myself out the back in the bungalow. After a couple of days I came up with the song. I played it to that person and it was therapeutic. It was a good sorry letter."[1]

The single sold over 35,000 copies, certified Australia Gold status. Influential Australian music industry representative Barry Bissell is noted as regarding this as Missy's finest work ever.

One of the b-sides featured with the single is a cover of a Skyhooks classic "You Just Like Me Cause I'm Good in Bed".

"The Special Two" was also included on Higgins' 2003 debut EP, The Missy Higgins EP, although re-recorded for the studio album.
