Liner Notes: 

So we are HALFWAY for 5090! Music idea for chorus included.

That was the inspiration for the lyric. And a musical theater song by [#timfatchen] inspired me to do this like a musical number.

I been often told by some that potential music collaborators would like lyric writers to suggest a melody for the lyrics. I hate to do that as in my experience usually music collaborators come up with something better than I could have imagined let alone conveyed. But for this one have have included the idea I had for the melody on the chorus as a musical show tune...

However, I would WELCOME a musical collaborator to put whatever melody or style of music that they hear when they read the words.

Thanks for checking this out!

Lyrics: 

Halfway There, Halfway Here

V1
we launch some adventures
that take us down new paths
sometimes when we’re halfway
we wonder if we should go back
there is uncertainty in the future
there are questions in the past
how can we find the clarity
that we are on the right track?

C
halfway there
halfway here
do you go all the way?
do you travel back?
do you stay in the middle somewhere?
when you are
halfway there
and halfway here

V2
we seek some opportunities
that we hope will help us grow
sometimes when we are halfway
we wonder if we should have said no
there is uncertainty in tomorrow
there are questions in what today knows
how can we find the clarity
that we are still good to go?

C
halfway there
halfway here
do you go all the way?
do you travel back?
do you stay in the middle somewhere?
when you are
halfway there
and halfway here

B
we might chart a course
with a map and compass too
we might chase the sun
follow the stars and moon
but there is no crystal ball
that can tell us all...
we must follow our heart
to find the truth....

C
halfway there
halfway here
do you go all the way?
do you travel back?
do you stay in the middle somewhere?
when you are
halfway there
and halfway here

Yes, definite theatre feel to the chorus. Lyrics are strong too! Nice work.
