Two Of Us

Former One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson honored his late mother on his poignant new song, “Two of Us.” Tomlinson’s mother died in 2016, and “Two of Us” finds the singer both grappling with grief and striving towards hope amidst a swell of strings, piano and booming drums. “I know you’ll be looking down,” Tomlinson sings, “Swear I’m gonna make you proud/I’ll be living one life for the two of us.”

- Rolling Stone

About Two Of Us:

Two Of Us was released as a single on March 7, 2019. The song was written by Louis, Andrew Jackson, Bryn Christopher, and Duck Blackwell. It was produced by Mark Crew, Dan Priddy, and Duck Blackwell.

The song is about his late mother, Johannah Deakin, who passed away from leukemia in 2016. The song was included in the 22 Best Mothers Day Songs That Will Make You Smile by The Oprah Magazine. Of the song, Louis said, “I just feel like, musically, I almost needed to get this song off my chest. People say writing is a part of therapy. In a way, I feel like I’d been avoiding writing this song because I knew I only had one chance to get it right. I don’t mean to be too soppy but if Two Of Us can help just one other person who’s going through the tough time I went through, that would make me really happy.”

On March 4, Louis Tomlinson tweeted, “I've hidden some video clips in hotspots around the world. All I need you to do is find them & then you'll be the first to hear more about my new track. Share what you find using #TwoOfUs & try to piece it together.” Fans gathered video clips, assembling a video of Louis talking about the song.

Besides the teasers, Louis gave signed shirts to a small number of fans who showed up at the hotspots. Some UK fans were picked to attend a fan event where they got to meet Louis and watch part of the music video being filmed. Some London fans on the mailing list were also chosen to attend a Secret Show on March 7.

Louis performed the song live during a livestream at 8 pm GMT (see video below under Live Performances). Louis released the official music video on May 16, 2019. On May 23, Louis announced a special acoustic version was being released at midnight.

Two Of Us

It's been a minute since I called you
Just to hear the answerphone
Yeah, I know that you won't get this
But I'll leave a message so I'm not alone
This morning I woke up still dreaming
With memories playing through my head
You'll never know how much I miss you
The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead

But you once told me, "Don’t give up
You can do it day by day"
And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away

So I will keep you, day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favourite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

I could feel your blood run through me
You're written in my DNA
Looking back in every mirror
I know you'll be waiting, I'll see you again

But you once told me, "Don’t give up
You can do it day by day"
And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away (Fade away)

So I will keep you, day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favourite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

I promised you I'd do this
So all of this is all for you
Oh, I swear to God you're living
Through everything I'll ever do

So I will keep you, day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favourite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

One life for the two of us
I'll be living one life for the two of us

We'll end just like we started
Just you and me and no one else
I will hold you where my heart is
One life for the two of us
