Song Description

Modern rock power ballad about commitment to your partner.

Story Behind the Song

This song was loafing about unfinished on my hard drive for a few years until I was inspired by a relationship to complete it.


"Common Ground"
©2017 Capers Simmons

I saw you in the crowd
And you took my hand,
Feels magical now,
But the magic runs out and I'm just a man
And you're just a woman,
But that's enough and
That's all we need.
So I don't ever want to win
If it means you lose,
And I never want to fight
If you're on the other side and the fight's with you.
But I'm only human,
And so are you, and
Sometimes we will.

So when I've got my voice raised
Like I don't have a choice, say
That I still do and I will choose you;
And if you don't remember
That we said "Forever",
I'll remind you and say:

Lay down your arms, lay down in mine
We stand to win if we can stand to lose a little bit of pride
Your flag flies high, don't tear it down.
I only ask we plant our flags on common ground.

Now we may never get it right,
But then again, who does?
We may never want to fight,
But you know we're going to fight, and it's just because
We are only human;
That's what we do, and
Sometimes we will.
So let's sing and dance
Let's fall in love
And make memories now that'll keep you around when I screw up.
I am imperfect
But I am worth it
And so are you.
