look, i've been catching up this week! :lol:
and, yes, i know the common abbreviation for ukulele is "uke" but i'd love it if it was "uku" so i made it uku :-D

uku love

1 where did you go?
2 where did i go?
1 where did you go?

1 if i said i sat up waiting for you
it'd be a lie
but i
thought you'd drop by
2 well, what do i
even say

.
.
.
2 do you dream?
1 do i dream?
2 for i am dreaming
there's his face in the parking lot and
there's all my anger in it, deafening him
1 well, you're done hiding behind cars, are you then?
2 i wish i was, or past caring, on a boat
1 on a boat?
2 on a boat with sailors' boots and you
1 me?
2 singing a ukulele shanty in yellow

.
.
.
1 becky, do you dream?
2 do i dream?
1 for i am dreaming
there's my mum in the supermarket and
there's me in her arms, she's carrying
2 like her dream once, was it?
1 no, i wasn't a kid in this one, oh ice
2 ice?
1 i wish i was on ice, with an igloo and you
2 me?
1 singing a ukulele carol in blue
2 “Antarctica . . .
1 . . . Starts Here”
“And the only things that hold us back . . .
Both: . . . are things we hold inside”
so let's go – go – let's
ride – ride – the waves
hide – hide – inside the ice
for crystal rain & slow refrains & clarity

cheers,
straycat.

Hi Straycat,

Interesting duet :D I like the idea of finishing each other's lines and taking it in new directions.

This is great!- “And the only things that hold us back . . .
Both: . . . are things we hold inside”

.....a Coldplay"ish" vibe could work well with this (add the uku as well)
or like Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters

Thanks for sharing.

James

Sorry, James, this is totally lame (i.e. late) as replies go :lol:

Love the song you posted as a suggestion!
Just realised I probably (half-)stole the first lines from this lovely bit of music

Been hearing them to that melody in my head :lol:

Glad you like this, it's from Frank Turner's "Sailor's Boots" (he has "me" and "I" instead of "us" and "we").
Feel free to go fall in love here:

:D

Thanks a million!

Yeah, that's a great line.
