    RECONSIDER
    © Jack Brown, May 2009

VERSE 1
I’ve tried so hard to comprehend
Why the greatest love we’ve ever known should have to end.
My heart is broken, my mind’s a mess
‘Cause I can’t stop thinking about our piece of happiness.
You said you needed time and space to breathe all on your own.
Well here’s a point to ponder in all your time alone.

CHORUS
Won’t you reconsider love,
Reconsider bliss,
Reconsider joy you used to feel with every kiss.
Reconsider all you threw away to start anew,
But most of all my darling, reconsider me and you.

VERSE 2
We have our differences, that’s true,
But aren’t you lonely with the only one who’s just like you.
I’m short and scrawny, you’re tall and fair,
But it was worth the climb and I kinda liked the air up there.
Life flies by too quickly to fret about seeing eye to eye.
It’s heart to heart and soul to soul that make it worth the try.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BRIDGE
There’s no disgrace in stepping back and starting from square one.
Just leave the past behind and we can make it like we’ve just begun.

VERSE 3
(Instrumental)
Love can conquer anything, especially mistakes.
Forgiveness for each other and ourselves is all it takes.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

SECOND CHORUS
Reconsider love.
The greatest in this world.
Reconsider all this boy once meant to you my girl.
(SAME AS BEFORE)
