Roll to the Middle

My church has been doing a series on family relationships for most of the summer. A few weeks back, they used a Sara Groves song with a message on reconciliation. It's a good one...

Roll To The Middle
w/m: Sara Groves
from the album, The Other Side of Something

We just had a World War III here in our kitchen
We both thought the meanest things
And then we both said them
We shot at each other till we lost amunition

This is how I know our love
This is when I feel it’s power
Here in the absence of it
This is my darkest hour
When both of us are hunkered down
And waiting for the truce

All the complicated wars
They end pretty simple
Here when the lights go down
We roll to the middle

No matter how my pride resists
No matter how this wall feels true
No matter how I can’t be sure
That you’re gonna roll in too
No matter what, no matter what I’m going to reach for you I long to find a love that doesn't say goodbye
