We Come Together

We're waiting for apologies
And we're waiting
We're both expecting sympathies
Another hour is gone
We sulk and carry on so stubborn-hearted
We're marking secret borders now
And we're waiting
We're in our separate corners now
We wait for night to fall
We can't even recall what got this started

Now is the time
And here is the place
'Cause we lose these hours casting blame
When we should be saying grace
We can find a better way
We can stand on common ground
We can work this out between us
Before the sun goes down
We come together

We don't know what we're trying to prove
But we're waiting
Until the other makes a move
We stick to our facades
We only speak in nods and sullen glances
Our shadows just get longer now
But, oh, my love
We both are feeling wronger now
We need to start again
Before this day has stolen all our chances

Now is the time...
