Life Is Not Black And White
More Like Light Grey
Each day I want to make simple and easy
You could say hassle free
Now we know that is not going to happen
My wife and I had a tiff
We couldn't agree
She tried to talk
I tried to talk over her
Each time I made a point
She picked through me like a pitch fork goes through hay
I'd back off
She would charge
I would come back strong
She would listen and silently fume
We were getting no where fast
What I thought was clear and important
She could not see how I did not see it her way
Insisting I should be by her side
I said I am but not in the way you want me to be
I thought all these years you seen it my way
Were you just appeasing me
How could you ?
You know how much it means to me
Instead of putting out the fire with water
We through a little gasoline to make it burn higher
It bothers me we can't be civil
Your the one raising your voice
We don't want the neighbors to hear
We asked for her aunt to give us an objective opinion
She agreed with my wife
I had to state my case
Then I explained my position
I hit a wall of bricks
Our aunt was not giving in one inch
This matter had to be resolved
I said I was willing to give in
I will see how the both of you handle it
It's not my place to go against my wife
I have to drop my weapons of choice
Rethink could I be wrong
Am I too stubborn to see the truth ?
Have I been wrong all along ?
I need more time to think it through
What harm will it do ?
If I examine my actions and the results
No time to feel hurt
Am I just misundersttod ?
