What can you do with the two people that you love
When they contend against one another and can’t rise above
Who do you show the most loyalty to
Who’s side should you be on, what should you do
Why is it that you must stay stuck in the middle
Deciding one over the other someone will feel belittled
Someones feelings will be hurt with your decision in the end
Someone will have to lose and even you won’t win
Blood is thicker than water is what we always say
But what about when the water has been there everyday
How can that determine who should have your loyalty
Or answer to the question who should you invite to be royalty
Why must you have to decide between the two anyway
Why should someone have to go because the other wants to stay
Why can’t they choose to show their loyalty to you
Why can’t they agree to get along and let those words be true
Why can’t two people who love the same person get along
Why can’t they see that the love for both of them is strong
What if you decide to remove yourself from the equation
How would they both feel about that situation
Asking someone to choose between two people that they love
Makes them feel like they are being pushed and shoved
It’s different when that person deliberately chooses another over you
When they are trying hard to make the other person see that they do
Trying to eliminate those feelings of sincere guilt
So the balance of the scales they inevitably tilt
When your loyalty is called into question by someone you love
And your chest wants to tighten like a sweaty hand in a glove
All you can say is that your loyalty to them is true
And that the other person has your loyalty too
But you will not choose they might as well get along
You’ll support either when they are right and tell the other when they are wrong
