the compromise lyrics – the format

you, you think it’s cool to be crazy
i say you’re born rich – stay rich
there’s no point in taking chances.
and me, i wouldn’t call it a soph*m*re slump, no, i’d say
i’m one step closer to bein’ just where i want to be

away from this scene,
away from this machine

alright!

meet me in the middle,
well c’mon let’s make up a dance
and we’ll agree to call it the compromise

step one: find a partner, grab a pen
and don’t you dare ask questions,
just sign on the dotted line
step two: throw your partner behind a desk
will then do absolutely nothing
so it’s your job to dance and smile the whole time

don’t call it a trend,
’cause it’s the only way we think to get ahead

meet me in the middle
well c’mon let’s make up a dance
and we’ll agree to call it the compromise

there’s no sense in complainin’
if it doesn’t change your minds
take me by the hand, let’s compromise

i can feel your feet touchin’ mine
if you can’t dance, there’s someone else in line

meet me in the middle,
well c’mon let’s make up a dance
and we’ll agree to call it the compromise

there’s no sense in complainin’
if it doesn’t change your minds
take me by the hand, let’s compromise
