The Only Thing
by  Rob Schiffmann and Jon Rothstein who dedicated it to Amy his significant other.

How can we be here for each other when there's no kindness to be found?
How can we stay with one another when every silence is a sound?
Why must we tear each other down?

 

Why do we want to be together when everybody falls apart?
How can we look inside each other and see the world behind the art?
Why must we tear ourselves apart

when we are...

The only thing we have, the only thing we are,
The only thing we want to be, yes and the only thing, by far, that we are?...

Why do we care for one another when we can be so hard to hold?
Why can't we stand beside each other and sit and watch the nights grow old?

Why must the night bring in the cold…

when we are...when we are…

The only thing we have, the only thing we are,
The only thing we want to be, yes and the only thing, by far, that we are?..

It was so long ago, I still remember. We fell so long ago when we believed.
I fell too long ago, do you remember, to say, so long and watch you leave....

 

The only thing we have, the only thing we are,
The only thing we want to be yes and the only thing, by far, that we are?
