I’ll Meet You in the Middle
By Dale Menten
My first wife died in 2008 after a ten-year struggle with cancer.
In 2011, I married a lifelong friend, Julie Johnson. It didn’t take us very long to discover that our political views were ‘slightly’ at odds: she was ‘slightly’ left of center, and I was ‘slightly’ right of center. I wrote this song in an effort to bridge the gap.
It’s a musical plea for non-partisanship. “We are more alike than we are different.”
Julie and I are happily married, and residing mostly in the middle.
