It's different because it has to be
Not jut another person! Same enterprise.
We can't do the same old thing anymore
I think we're both in for surprise!

No more easy seduction
No practiced methods of appeal.
Fare well to rehearsed romance
If this is to be real...

We must now step outside ourselves
Becoming ourselves at the same time.
We both know what this means
Identity together, yet individually prime.

There can be no "trying" like before
We're going to have to simply BE.
Affectations will only ruin us
We both must want this genuinely.

Our sameness can be advantage or danger
A welcomed yet enforced kind of honesty.
Because this will really have to be different
If there is to be any you and me...
