Common Ground

By Bruce Clifford

"This is an updated piece originally penned in 2004"

The King and I,
You and I don't stand on common ground
My love for you will never die
You say you'll never come around

When you touch me the world moves
But to you it's just good faith
When I see you with other guys
My heart just tends to break

Will we ever find a common ground?

The King and I,
You and I don't stand on common ground
When I look into your eyes
My heart makes a new sound
Is there a chance you will come around

I can always tell when you are near
My body gets so weak
But you are just playing a part
While my love for you grows strong

Will we ever stand on common ground?

I don't understand why you can't feel the way I do
With all that we have in common I thought that it would be so easy to
What is it that I don't do for you

I don't know why
You and I don't stand on common ground
Your voice that soothes a stormy sky
I thought love was finally found

When you look into my eyes
Sometimes I think you really care
But other times you drift away
And you hardly know I'm there

The King and I,
You and I don't stand on common ground
Will there ever be a you and I?
Did you really ever try?
