In Two Minds is applicable to the dual nature of this first air sign. This is captured by the central phrase of the lyrics 'So do not stay and do not go'. The key of the work at the outset is G Major however harmonies of the song move between G Major and C Major - 'two minds - two keys' and the work finishes in C Major.
