First recorded as "Balloonatic", this was very first song Muse released, in 1997, on the Helping You Back to Work Volume 1 compilation. It was recorded in late 1996 and is included on the Newton Abbot demo. By the time "Twin" was released, Matthew Bellamy was unaware that it had ever been released under the name "Balloonatic".
The name "Balloonatic" came from a children's television programme at the time the music was written. Matthew Bellamy stated that after he wrote the lyrics, the song was renamed "Twin", although complete versions of the song were in fact released under both titles, albeit with somewhat different lyrics in each.
At 0:08, Bellamy can be heard giggling.
Your warmth Your warmth is so deep, Your gaze beams a hole into me Controlling again Unseparated twins Controlling again You've sucked All the breath out of me You'll squeeze all the life out of me Controlling again Unseparated twins Controlling again Controlling again Unseparated twins You might've been... Come gentle, slowly, Down tonight
You came, You came, you scorched her You came, unstained you adore her United again Like separated twins United again You You will remember She knows, she knows you want her United again Like separated twins United again United again Like separated twins You can be... Come gentle, slowly, Down tonight
