Lyrics

If I was lost would you have pity
Would you please permit me the truth
Would you take what I say with a little less gravity
Like the words of a wondering youth
If I spoke more calmly could you hear me more clearly
Would my words afford me your time
And would you feel heard if I did less talking, less Blame more pausing and denying
If I realized that we are both different
But no less important we two
If I told you that we want more of the same things
Could you somehow believe that’s true
That's somewhere between hateful words and agreeing
Then that's where we begin
Better than where we have been
If that's only for a moment that we care just a little
Then this broken down omen might somehow be the middle.
If we were both young and a little less tainted, corrupted persuaded by words
Anger and hate and sadness unspoken
From the tarnished and broken to blur
All of our hopes and truths still shining
Like a compass star through all the haze
Could we be the ones no shame set upon us
The ones not suffering chains

Then that's somewhere between
hateful words and agreeing
Then that's where we begin
Better than where we have been
If that's only for a moment
That we care just a little
Then this broken down omen might somehow be the middle
If I walk closer couild you meet me halfway
We're just two folks talking no side to betray
No all or nothing, not hate no disdain
no colors divide us no history remains

That's somewhere between
Hateful words and agreeing
Then that's where we begin
Better than where we have been
If that's only just a moment
That we care just a little
Then this broken down omen might somehow be the middle
