Lyrics and Music ©2004 by Bill Roper


A song dedicated to the simple proposition that we may have more in common than you think we do.

	C                            Fmaj7
	Well, I don't think that I'm wrong
	G                     C 
	When I'm a little bit right.
	  Am7                  Dm7
	I thought we might get along,
	G                 C
	But we got into a fight.
	                      D
	I see the center from here.
	E                       Am
	I know the center can't hold,
	                      G6
	Because we argue from fear.
	Fmaj7                  C
	Reason's dead and it's cold.

C                       D    F                   C
You know we just might agree if we just tried to talk,
                     D   G                   C
But it's not easy to see and it's so easy to walk.
                           D     E                    Am
And all the things that we share may not be simple to find,
Am7                      Dm7   G                    C
But I think that they're there and I hope you don't mind.

There are things we believe down deep in the heart.
You don't have to leave  we just need to start
To build a new bridge  replace the one that we burned.
Climb up on the ridge and see what we've learned.

You know I don't want to lose, but I don't need to win.
We just need to choose to walk together again.
There is strength at the core when there's hope in our hearts
And together we're more than the sum of our parts.

	Well, I don't think that you're wrong
	When you're a little bit left,
	But we've been shouting so long,
	We're both a little bit deaf.
	I see the center from here.
	I know the center can't hold,
	Because we argue from fear.
	Reason's dead and it's cold.

	I see the center from here
	And I need to be whole,
	As we put away fear
	And recover our soul.
