Opposite Tables Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Seasons Of The Heart

This song was first released on the Seasons of the Heart Album. It is the only album it has been released on.

Father on father please hear me
My song is a cry of desperation
All of the words I hear
Have lost their meaning

My life is a well of confusion
Drowned out by the sound of the lost and lonely
Only the voice inside
Speaks your name to me

If they only knew the things that I know
If they only could see the things that I see

My brothers at opposite tables
Like fire and water against each other
Only a fool cant see
The obvious ending

Are we as ashes to wildwood
Is life just a fire that can only consume us
Is there no vision of love
To bind us together

If they only knew the things that I know
If they only could see the things that I see

These are powerful lyrics, especially when you hear them in the song with the emphasis in certain places.

It is probably the best John Denver song that no-one knows. Only the true John Denver fans know it. A casual fan probably doesn't own this album and therefore has never heard it.

I urge you to find it and listen to it. The melody is beautiful. Then listen to it again to fully focus & appreciate the lyrics.
