IN OUR OWN WAY

Copyright 2012 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

You and I have something good together
Letís make sure we help it to stay
We can make this last forever, baby
If we donít get in our own way

 

We donít need to fix things that arenít broken
I donít know why weíd even try
When you start to analyze what you love
Itís like tryiní to sweep the tide

 

Everybody tells me that they want to live and let live, and
Everybody tells me that they need to run their own race
Why then is it when you look around you that you see
So many people traveling at someone elseís pace?

 

We have always done right by each other
I donít see why this needs to change
Lets just keep our wits about us, baby
We donít need to make things get strange

 

It is said that too much truth might just be
More than we can bear to hear, but
Thereís one truth youíll want me to tell you, and
That one truth is I want you near

 

Everybody tells me that they want to live and let live, and
Everybody tells me that they need to run their own race
Why then is it when you look around you that you see
So many people traveling at someone elseís pace?

 

You and I have something good together
If we donít get in our own way
We can make this last forever, baby
If we donít get in our own way
