Romance Of Life

 

Whose side are you on tonight

Stronger, bigger, better left alone

Who is winnin' who is wrong

Are you a chosen one or choosin'

 

Whose side are you on

Whose side are you on tonight

Livin', dyin', tryin' to get home

What has been said what is not done

Are you a chosen one or choosin'

Whose side are you on

 

            There's mixed up blues

            Some done dirty deals

            You cross those rivers

            And ride those waterwheels

            Your freedom is breathin'

            And teamin' with the romance of life

 

There is another side tonight

Nearer, warmer, never left alone

Who is not love, who is not wanted

Are you a lover for a loved one

Whose side are you one

 

            There's mixed up blues

            Some done dirty deals

            You cross those rivers

            And ride those waterwheels

            Your freedom is breathin'

            And teamin' with the romance of life
