Half and Half True

by @chris_buono

There is no demo for this song.

Liner Notes

Theme/prompt: To write a #song in an hour along with @unknownbecky during her 8/17/22 livestream on #Twitch. She was writing a song about her "favorite people." Off my input, @andygetch suggested I pen one about "halfway point." So I did.

Lyrics

[V1]
One step forward, two then back
I'm the glass half empty
You're the part that's full
And how we mix well in this life bowl

[V2]
Not always the case
Until we got to this place
In a beat-up sedan
And a whole lotta grace

[Chorus]
At the halfway point
We didn't anoint
Or dream of love
But we stuck it out
Leaving no doubt
That it was true

[V3]
Dad wasn't keen on me for you
Kinda strange your mom felt that way, too
Went against the tide, through thick and thin
Happy now, despite where we've been

[V4]
You're the yin to my yang
The best friend I know
Two travelers in life space
Together at the right place

[Chorus]
At the halfway point
We didn't anoint
Or dream of love
But we stuck it out
Leaving no doubt
That it was true

[Outro]
Ohh ohh ohh
That it was true
Me and you
Together
Forever

This is a nice 'you and me' song. Lovely sentiments and all the things a significant other would love to hear, mixed with some real life challenges. Well done on the prompt!

Interesting write. I enjoy your realistic view on love. That it's not super sweet and easy but a lot of work.

As non native speaker I got a question concerning the word anoint. Are you really speaking of the religious meaning or is there something I just don't know?
