my lyricsbox
She is twenty-five, spent over half of her life
So afraid to speak her mind, it's such a shame
Cause what a brilliant mind she has

And now that she's been introduced to confidence
She doesn't see, that she is bordering on arrogance
When will she learn to come back to the middle

He is a young black man, grew up without his father
And now it falls into his hands, to protect his mother
Cause if he doesn't, well then who will

His older brother lives in fear of everything
Especially, trying to fill his father's shoes

Respectively, they go to extremes, of masculine and feminine
Chasing dreams, but they keep on falling
Cause they don't know no balance
When will they learn to come back to the middle

You gotta take the good with the bad, and you might hit the wall
Sometimes you'll fly and sometimes you will fall
There ain't no way to avoid the pain
But it's getting burned, that's how you will learn
To come back to the middle

Needing to protect yourself, now that is just a part of life
If you let your fears keep you from flying
You will never reach your height
To get to the top, you must come back to the middle
When will we learn to come back to the middle

Come back to the middle, come back to the middle
Don't make no mind about falling down
Cause it's when you're in that valley
You can see both sides more clearly

Come back to the middle
This song is from the album "Acoustic Soul".
