They’ve been living parallel, And things aren’t going so well;
And life just can’t stay the same – They can’t keep playing this lonely game.
They gotta connect, they gotta unite,
They gotta wake up and make things right,
Or their family could falter and fail From living parallel….
A song telling the story of a couple that has drifted into a “parallel marriage,” living separate lives though still legally together – and how they can restore connection and unity in their relationship.
