Meet Me Halfway

Love is a river that's floodin' in the pools
Each wants to make it to the other side
Before that bridge starts burning
I think we're missing a face where love ___?
Though our hearts have gone open wide
The hardest part is learning

You don't give up, just give and take
You got to work around these little heartaches
The question is love, that's the answer to this riddle
When noone phones the line (?) or will you meet me in the middle
Just meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll meet you there

I know your mama think she's got the best solution
Girl we got to work this out
And I believe the rhythm
We got to start out our own counter revolution
Baby open up and talk about
Put it on the table

You don't give up, just give and take
We got to work around these little heartaches
The question is love, that's the answer to this riddle
When no one phones the line (?) or will you meet me in the middle
Just meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll meet you there

BRIDGE:
Come on and meet me halfway, halfway to heaven
We've been to hell and back about a hunderd times eleven
Meet me halfway, baby please hold me
There ain't twice enough love and half enough to worry

You take my hand in this land of understanding
Shinin' like a distant light
A mothership is comin'
Heaven on earth is a state of mind that's handin'
Handin' us this dream tonight
Can't you hear these motors hummin'

There ain't no tellin' how far we can fly
The fourth dimension on this rocket ride
The question is love, that's the answer to this riddle
When no one phones the line (?) or will you meet me in the middle
Just meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll come on
Meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll want you
Meet me halfway, a whole hundred and ten
Fifty times two well that's a hundred percent
Just meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll
Meet me halfway, baby, hey come on baby
Meet me halfway, baby, hey I'll be there
