From the recording All You Can Love
I guess some things are meant to be smooth, some not
Our love can come unglued, hit a rough spot
But we never get so mad that we say goodbye
And we got to thinkin’ that we don’t know why
There’s usually a reason for things
Sometimes you just have to think about it for avoidance of doubt
So, you know, we have
And now we believe we’ve got it all figured out...
If the mountain was smooth, you could not climb it
If the roads were that way too, no holes to get around
If not for all these pits, we wouldn’t need to make the pieces fit
There’d just be way too much common ground
The other day you said I was a brick shy a load
So I said then maybe you should just hit the road
But there’s no need to get too worked up when you fight
’Cause fightin’ is before the lovin’ is before goodnight
Yeah, life is rough but you wouldn’t want it too smooth
Because that would get real boring real fast...
Yes, if the mountain was smooth, we’d slide back down
