MEET IN THE MIDDLE

If we meet in the middle
We're halfway
But to where?

Between what you want
And what I can give
Between what I need
And how you can live

Between tenderness
And desire
Between the best intentions
And a lack of fire

If we meet in the middle
We're still only halfway there
If we meet in the middle
Is it happier than here?

Between ingrown habits
And new inspiration
Between faked feelings
and true dedication

Between sense of adventure
And fear of change
Between peace process
And a shooting range

If we meet in the middle
We're still only halfway there
If we meet in the middle
Will we be happier than here?

The strange tinkling sensation in your fingertips
You used to talk about it when we were alone
Did you just get used to it?
Or are you not talking about it anymore
Because it's gone

If we meet in the middle
We're still only halfway there
If we meet in the middle
Will we be happier than here?

Between love
And confusion
Between fact
And illusion

Between passion
And pain
Between fighting for it
And feeling it's in vain

If we meet in the middle
We're halfway
But to where?
