Two

Two

“Two” is the closing track from my new album, The Sound. Not only is it my favorite song from the album, but it may just be the longest Color Theory track ever. It started out as a collaboration with Swedish producer Johan Emmoth, who heard my music through my friend Viktor Ginner of Rupesh Cartel. He sent me an instrumental sketch to add vocals to. There wasn’t much extra space in the arrangement, but I did my best. When I collaborate, I intentionally write in a voice that’s very different from the “me” you’ve come to know. This was never meant to be a Color Theory song, but in the end it just didn’t fit in the mix, so Johan gave me permission to develop it on my own.

What have we here?
It’s not what you think
I’ve had time to consider my words
And nothing to drink

Caught in the act
With sweat on my brow
I knew sooner or later you’d find out
So how about now?

Don’t cry for your mother
Don’t curse your discovery
I don’t think any less of you
There’s room in my heart for two

Don’t call me your lover
Don’t grudge me another one
You shouldn’t let it bother you
There’s room in my heart for two

Don’t look surprised
You had to suspect
I’ve got way too much time on my hands
What did you expect?

To let me go
Would be such a waste
There are plenty of other girls happy
To be in your place

(repeat chorus)

We’re all adults
There’s no need to shout
We can talk later on if you want
I’m busy right now

So run along
Now be a dear
Could you turn off the lights on your way out
I’m not finished here.

  3. I AM 72 YEARS OLD FROM ALASKA AND IT WIULD BE SO EASY TO SAY NOT MY KIND OF MUSIC , BUT I HAVE A GIRLFRIEND THAT IS AN INDIE ARTIST THAT IS TEACHING ME MUSIC APPRECIATION . LISTENING TO THE MUSIC , FEELING THE RHYTHM ,MELODY. VARIATIONS ON THEMES AND PROGRESSIONS AND ADDING IN THE WORDS . I AM SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH I LIKE IT THE FIRST TIME AND BETTER THE SECOND TIME . CONGRATULATIONS ON FINE WORL FROM ME , NOW A FAN HERE AND ON JANGO . VISIONBEAR , SHAMAN OF THE NORTHERN TRIBES .

  4. I agree that this is a very solid song. The words are engaging and the melody is VERY radio friendly. You’ve definitely scored another winner with this track. My kids (15 yrs, 5 yrs, 22 mos) all like it, too! Then, of course, they ask me why I don’t write songs that sound like this! =0)

    Great job, Brian! Keep up the good work!!

  5. by far one of the best Color Theory songs i have ever heard you release. I Really Love It! I’ve listened to it about 5 times today already. I can’t wait to get the album and hear the rest!! Congrats on your new release again. :D

  6. Good song and what a collaboration with the instrumental. Keep up the music and looking forward to playing more for you on Black Rose Radio.

    Congratulations on the new release!

  7. A warm hello to you Brian from here in England, UK. Wow, hard hitting words in this song but saying that i really love it. Concentrating on the other side’s selfish point of view would be one subject that most would avoid, but not you. Lol. I think your a wonderful musician and deserve far more credit. x

  8. Thanks all for the kind words! I’m still getting used to this comment system. I clicked the “like” button on some of the comments, thinking it would say “Brian Hazard likes this” like Facebook. So now you know, that “1 person” is me! :)

  9. I loved it! Yes there’s room in my playlist for the song Two, too hehehe… Thanks for sharing, maybe you are the most modest musician i have ever seen… I will keep inviting my friends to listen your music as always…

  10. It’s a bit trancey I have to say but I don’t mind it. I think it sorts of sits between synth pop and a dance track without doing eitther. But still nice. What instruments do you use (plugins and synth sounds)

  11. i wont repeat what’s already been said, so i’ll just mention something that i can’t believe hasn’t been commented upon yet – those two girls in the image are stunningly gorgeous.
