"Difference of Opinion" as written by and Mark Mcfadden Wilkerson....
I see my life is taking time away from me
Chains that bind the things I want to change
I can't break free
I, well I told you so, now I can't let go
Of the things I've strived to hard to be

I'm afraid I've come too far
My changing life's been torn apart
But I won't give up on my dreams
I don't think I'll ever see
The things you wanted me to see
I only hope we can be friends

Pain, the pain I've felt
Is growing deep inside of me
I, I can't imagine what you wanted me to be
What if I fell down, would you pick me up
Would you be there taking stabs at me

I'm afraid I've come too far
My changing life's been torn apart
But I won't give up on my dreams
I don't think I'll ever see
The things you wanted me to see
I only hope we can be friends, again
We can be friends, again

I'm afraid I've come too far
My changing life's been torn apart
But I won't give up on my dreams
I don't think I'll ever see
The things you wanted me to see
I only hope we can be friends, again
We can be friends, again

    General CommentThe song actually was written by Mark Wilkerson (lead singer, song writer & rythm guitar) and it is about his relationship with his parents. They didn't approve of his career choice and weren't close for years because of it. But now they are together again and are happy for his success. Cindy

    General CommentI love this song. The lyrics have a different meaning to me. When I first heard this song I too was having a difference of Opinion like Mark was. Accept that it was with my spouse not parents like in Mark's (the song writers) case. To me it was about him wanting to change careers and that meant changing our whole lives. For him it was a life change career wise. Which meant leaving everything behind. Including our family, friends, home, ect. to the unknown. Well I could understand some of his reason but felt well what about me......What about my dreams, my life, my home, my business. Well our Difference of Opinion almost ruin us and we were about to split up over it but then we worked things out. But it was at a price. Now I sit and listen to another song by Course of Nature "Could I've Been" and relate some more..........

    Check out the lyrics to Could I've been..............
