Lyrics

COMMON GROUND

she comes from Venus, he comes from Mars
they don't understand each other
she's lost in emotions he's stuck in his head
how can they be lovers when they're strangers in bed
they want to escape the hell they're in
but they both feel helpless
and don't know where to begin

there's a common ground where we can stand
there's no borders between you and me
there's a common tongue that we can sing
songs of joy and harmony

newspaper headlines declare a new war
with pictures of bloody casualties
the soldiers advance like pawns in a game
each side believes that the other's to blame
wasn't it said that to kill is a sin
so why go on fighting
cause no one ever wins

there's a common ground where we can stand
there's no borders between you and me
there's a common tongue that we can sing
tongs of joy and harmony

in the temple of your heart
is where this holy land is found
i'll meet you there
upon our common ground

tenement houses, country estates
some get red and some get the green
our school books teach us that all men are free
but it's still just a dream and not reality
some get shut out and others let in
it's a world divided
by the shade of your skin

there's a common ground where we can stand
there's no borders between you and me
there's a common tongue that we can sing
songs of joy and harmony


in the temple of your heart
is where this holy land is found
i'll meet you there
upon our common ground
