Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, stop and go, here and there

stop and go

Huffing and puffing our way through the stairs
My heart beating hard as I’m so aware
Feeling my salty sweat and swollen legs
Oh shall we stop now, I seriously beg
And there are still more steps to go
The light from the top glows
Why did I take the challenge?
I don’t know why I took the plunge
Why didn’t I just stay at home?
I could do the yoga and go ohm
Oh, you’d love it, the view’s great
I’m still not there yet as I await
Once we’re on top, the whole town
Once we’re there, I’ll give you a crown
Such a convincing bloke he is
We’re there and I gave him a kiss
And wow it was really amazing
And I can go back down with a zing

here and there

I am here, you are there
Miles apart, half of the world
We have to cross the seas and lands
We have to endure the storms coming
You are there, so far away, unreachable
I say this, you say that, misunderstanding
Hard to communicate, different opinions
Upsetting one another even not intentionally
Causing pain in the heart and soul, shattering
Over the mountains, through seven seas
Enduring the pain, winter, spring, autumn
Summer comes, is there a flicker of hope?
Can we overcome the hurdles, the storm?
I don’t know, I really don’t know
