TWO SIDES

We try so hard and yet we fail

When a lighter hand would prevail

Think of something as soft as water

Easily erase the earth 

 

Standing in the midstream of my life

All those years that formed my past 

I can’t help but start to wonder

Why a fleeting moment lasts?

 

Two sides of everything

Of everything in life

There’re two sides of everything

Of everything life brings

 

I saw the courage that’s so rare

In that young man on the square

He turned voices raised in anger

Into a sound of silent whispers

 

Two sides of everything

Of everything in life

There’re two sides of everything

Of everything life brings

 

Two sides of everything

Feeling sad but my heart can sing

There’re two sides of everything

Of everything in life

 

So cover me blindly

And pray

That I will find a way

   

So cover me blindly

From this pain

So that I can heal again

 

Two sides of everything

Of everything in life

There’re two sides of everything

Of everything life brings

 

Two sides of everything

Feeling sad but my heart can sing

There’re two sides of everything

Of everything in life
