Wood and wire and lost desire
The boundary we built keeps us apart
Weeds grown 'round and falling to the ground
I'd tear it down but don't know where to start

We have mended our fences,
Atoned for our offenses
No regrets, we just disagree
One day we'll meet at the turnstile,
I'll turn and see you smile
But for now, best just let it be, let it be
For now, best just let it be

Open ranges become polite exchanges
On the borderline we both understand
Stay on your side and I'll stay on mine
Still I wish we could go walking hand in hand

We have mended our fences,
Atoned for our offenses
No regrets, we just disagree
One day we'll meet at the turnstile,
I'll turn and see you smile
But for now, best just let it be, let it be
For now, best just let it be

I'm untied
From your side
My tears have dried
Like split-rails on and on for miles

Now I'm free to ride along that great divide
Some days it seems like all I ever do
I've got pastures to tend, but every now and then
I look around for a glimpse of you

We have mended our fences,
Atoned for our offenses
No regrets, we just disagree
One day we'll meet at the turnstile,
I'll turn and see you smile
But for now, best just let it be, let it be
For now, best just let it be, let it be

For now, best just let it be
