Same Side

I woke up this morning

And I turned on the radio

I heard the same old song

So I went outside

 

People fighting, people living, people dying

And it’s oh so much to think about

It’s oh so much to worry about

It makes me cry

 

Need a bit of perspective,

Need some time to reflect it,

To remember how similar we all are

We all want the same things,

A chance to follow our dreams

To raise a family of love and liberty

 

So don’t forget the time we spent,

We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,

And even though we make mistakes

We stand unified.

 

So hold on tight

It’s a hell of fight

Keeps you up in the night

But we have to remember

We’re all on the same side

 

Now it’s late in the evening

And I can’t seem to turn off the news

Telling me that we’re gonna lose

But we’ve already won

 

We’ve got a message and a voice and a song

Now if only we could all just get along

Put away the past and pride

And leave the worries behind

 

Need a bit of perspective,

Need some time to reflect it,

To remember how similar we all are

We all want the same things,

A chance to follow our dreams

We are a family of love and liberty

 

So don’t forget the time we spent,

We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,

And even though we make mistakes

We stand here unified

 

So hold on tight

It’s a hell of fight

Keeps you up in the night

But we have to remember

We’re all on the same side (repeat)
