about

1984 is real and playing out right before our eyes. Truth is lies and lies are truth. This song is about the world today. It's also inspired by a past relationship.

Two and Two

Music and Lyrics by Jim Love


Two and two they don’t make four, they don’t do that any more
Don’t you dare believe your eyes, they’re lying
White is black and black is white, night is day and day is night
I want to believe you babe - I’m trying

But I’ve got a feeling, deep inside I think you know I know you lied
What you do, and what you say
Ain’t gonna make it go away

When the sunshine turns to rain, and the pleasure turns to pain,
And there you go, you go again, heart breaking’
I don’t know where it went wrong, we’re living’ in a country song
But all the great ones have been done - they’re taken..

But I’ve got a feeling, deep inside I think you know I know you lied
What you do, and what you say
Ain’t gonna make it go away

In that tangled web we weave when we’re trying to deceive
I keep trying to believe, I’m hoping’
Sadly, though I’ve gotten wise, I’ve become what you despise
I can see it now my eyes - are open

Bridge

Packing up and backing down, staying’ home and going to tow.
I know what’s been going on, I see it
Maybe if I set you free, when you’ve seen the last of me,
You’ll find who you want to be – and be it

But I’ve got a feeling, deep inside I think you know I know you lied
What you do, and what you say
Ain’t gonna make it go away

Two and two they don’t make four, they don’t do that any more
Don’t you dare believe your eyes, they’re lying

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
