Problems to Solve by Tim Seston

We’ve got some work to do / I know                    (C -  - G)
We’ve got this thing we need / to solve               (GC - G)
So grab your wits, and let’s think it through       (GC - G)
It’s time that you and I evolve.                               (GDm GC)

Our friendship is in a rocky place                         (Dm - G)
I don’t know what I should do                               (Dm C G -)
You say all you want is to make it all right          (F – Dm)
But why should I start trusting you                       (G – G7)

I know how you feel - I have been there before
And I know that I’ve made you upset
But let me tell you that deep in my core
I’m worthy of you . . . but not yet

It takes some trial                                                     (F)
It takes some error                                                   (C)
It takes time to learn what it’s all about                (G - C)
It takes revision                                                         (F)
It takes new ideas                                                    (C)
It takes patience to figure it out.                             (G G7 C)

We’ve got some work to do / I know
We’ve got this thing we need / to solve
So grab your wits, and let’s think it through
It’s time that you and I evolve.

I’ll give it a try, let me sit here a while
Let me think about what you have said
I know all you want is to make it all right
There’s so much going on in my head

Thank you for listening that’s all I can ask
Now I know that this is not the end
Yes, let me tell you that deep in my core
I’m worthy of you . . . my dear friend

It takes some trial
It takes some error
It takes time to learn what it’s all about
It takes revision
It takes new ideas
It takes patience to figure it out.

We’ve got some work to do / I know
We’ve got this thing we need / to solve
So grab your wits, and let’s think it through
It’s time that you and I evolve.

And I know we can figure this out.
Problems to Solve
The Rock

Writing songs for a musical is very different than writing a song that
is meant to stand on its own.  In this song we have two voices.  
One is trying to persuade, the other has felt betrayed.  Is
compromise a possibility?  Is solving the problem good for both
parties?  

The context of this particular story isn't available in the song but
rather will work its way out in the dialogue on stage.  The song
itself is meant to highlight the type of situation that happens
regularly in our day to day lives.  It is fun to think about the bigger
picture when crafting a story.

The show will premier in July, 2018 at Camp Pok-O-MacCready.
