"The Great Divide" as written by and Stuart Brawley Emmy Rossum....
Reach across the great divide.
See the war behind your eyes.
Finally slow the racing clock.
Try so hard to make it stop.

Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Don't look away.
Hear me say,
I need you now.
I need you now.
I need you now.

No more throwing stones tonight.
This glass house can't take the fight.
Help me calm this hurricane.
Before this moment slips away.

Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Don't look away.
Hear me say,
I need you now.
I need you now.
I need you now.

    General Commentthis song really is beautiful
    Rossum has such a beautiful voice
    i'm pretty sure the meaning's obvious (the way i see it, at least): they're fighting and she just wants the fighting to stop because she can't live with it.
