Cross the Divide (Original Song By DP poster)

Something more lighthearted and optimistic. I think it fits the bill though. Thanks for listening, and feedback is always appreciated!

They tried to tell you
"You could never be anything.
There's too much distance on the road to reaching the king.
But you'll be happy living in the space they've allowed.
Embrace existence as an empty face in the crowd.
And you'll be all right."

They tried to tell you that
"You'll never be but a pawn.
You know the rules and it's a game designed for the strong.
Where could you get? You only move one space at a time.
Stay in position and don't try to cross the divide.
And you'll be all right."

Just cross the divide, one space at a time. I'll meet you on the other side.

Cool, thanks

I'm going to go post it over there now (I'll give you credit of course), but stop on by sometime and drop off more if you want to. I love originals over there and there is just a lot of good music going on in general over there.



I encouraged Regular John to post on your thread which takes a while to open, and one reason I don't enjoy going there. If it loaded faster I would check it more often, and enjoy it when it does open. I just wanted you to know that for me, it's the only thread on DP that takes at least half a minute to open. Great thread!

Pssst...When you get a minute Granger

I am sorry to hear about your brother. My stomach sank when I read that. Here, so you do not have to wait for the thread to load, this is for you and your brother.
Oh yeah... Don't forget to breathe Granger, I'm still nursing a deep wound from October... just keep breathing.

very mellow

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thanks fishy
