lyrics

Fade in on a pair of brethren hearts without a care
They were made to stay together and I'm sure you'd say the same
And the day when the game they played was in major need of repair
Arm in arm they swayed and ne'er to part they made this fateful claim

Singing, "Oh this can be our reconciliation song
We'll save it for a day when everything goes wrong
Yes this will our reconciliation song
But pray that such a day will never come along"

Now maybe it's plain to see for those of you who have shared
A life, a place, and time and space with one and became the same
That the rains never failed to fall and a haze often hung in the air
But they'd not complain of life unfair or try to place the blame

They'd sing, "Oh this now is our reconciliation song
We saved it for some day when everything goes wrong
Yes this is now our reconciliation song
We pray that such a day will never come along"

But then a storm appeared and laid their plans to waste
A bolt crashed from the sky, with blackness was it laced
They reached out for their song with hurried, hopeful haste
And soon they found the song had vanished without a trace
"The song, the song," they cried, "oh where could it be placed?"
They cast their eyes aloft at the storm that would have to be faced
And lo, a light broke through, and gave this tempest a chase
When from within they summoned the chorus

And sang, "Now listen to our reconciliation song
We saved it for this time when everything went wrong
Yes listen to our reconciliation song
Let other days like this one never come along
Let other days like this one never come along"
