  • Here we stand
    Somewhere in between this moment and the end
    Will we bend?
    Or will we open up and take this whole thing in?

    Everybody else is smiling and their smiles don't fade
    And you don't even wonder why you just don't think that way

    Maybe you and me got lost somewhere,
    We can't move or we can't stay here
    Well maybe we've just had enough,
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love
    You and me tried everything
    But still that mocking bird wont sing
    Well man this life seems hard enough
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love

    Take my hand
    And I will lead you through the broken promise land
    Yes I can, ah yes I can
    I can be there when you need it,
    I'll give it all till you can't feel it anymore

    I don't wanna love you now,
    If you'll just leave someday
    I don't wanna turn around,
    If you'll just walk away

    Maybe you and me got lost somewhere,
    We can't move or we can't stay here
    Well maybe we've just had enough,
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love
    You and me tried everything
    But still that mocking bird wont sing
    Well man this life seems hard enough
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love

    Maybe you and me got lost somewhere,
    We can't move or we can't stay here
    Well maybe we've just had enough,
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love
    You and me tried everything
    But still that mocking bird wont sing
    Well man this life seems hard enough
    Well maybe we ain't meant for this love

    Maybe we ain't meant for this love
    Maybe we ain't meant for this loveWriter/s: ROBERT THOMAS
