Lyrics

Common Ground by Mark Goldrich
(first verse)
Well, where are the leaders
The ones we all knew
The ones who could make our heart sing
Where is the courage to do what you say
If you don’t, then it don’t mean a thing
(chorus)
For all of our children
And their children too
It’s time to hear our voices sing
The right and the left
They must find common ground
If they don’t, then it don’t mean a thing
(second verse)
JFK asked us if we could do more
Hope came from Martin Luther King
Have you forgotten their message?
Are you just getting by?
If you are, then it don’t mean a thing







(chorus)
(third verse – bridge)
I thank all the heros
Who given their all
I pray for the greatness
That’s within us all
I pray for the leaders
Who’ll answer the call
If they don’t
Then it don’t mean a thing
(chorus)
(final chorus) repeat:
If they don’t, then it don’t mean a thing
