Reconcile Our Differences

This song is by Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds. Unreleased song which subsequently became "Bartender". Appears on several bootleg albums.

Oh my dear
When I was dreaming
I wish you would take your lies elsewhere
Don't give them to me

Oh my friend
Old as you are
How could I trust you as far
As I could throw you, brother?

As to you my love
My precious baby
If I die be sure to eat me up
Where I can stay with you

Take my flesh
And eat it down
Drink my blood for every pound you can brother

We reconcile, our differences
When I saw God and the devil walking on and on
We reconcile, our different tastes
When I saw the devil swimming in the Lord's swimming pool

To drink this wine
God forgive him
Your falling angel's doing fine
He's got you under boards

Oh then God
This dream may be done
How he had given rise to him what would we care

If there were no Judas
Or there were no devil
Where would God and this little boy be now?
No where I swear

Oh it's said
When it seems extreme
When all we do is reconcile our differences here
