SARA BAREILLES


Between The Lines Lyrics

Time to tell me the truth
To burden your mouth for what you say
No pieces of paper in the way

'Cause I can't continue pretending to choose
These opposite sides on which we fall
The loving you laters if at all
No right minds could wrong, be this many times

My memory is cruel
I'm queen of attention to details
Defending intentions if he fails

Until now, he told me her name
It sounded familiar in a way
That I could have sworn I'd heard him say it
Ten thousand times, oh, if only I had been listening

Leave unsaid, unspoken
Eyes wide shut, unopened
You and me always between the lines
Between the lines

I thought I, thought I was ready to bleed
That we'd move from the shadows on the wall
Stand in the center of it all

Too late, two choices, to stay or to leave
Mine was so easy to uncover
He'd already left with the other
So I learned to listen through silence

Leave unsaid, unspoken
Eyes wide shut, unopened
You and me always be
You and me always be

I tell myself all the words he surely meant to say
I'll talk until the conversation doesn't stay on
Wait for me, I'm almost ready when he meant let go

Leave unsaid, unspoken
Eyes wide shut, unopened
You and me always be
You and me always between the lines
Between the lines, between the lines

the lyrics sums up pretty much how i feel. Once u think u trust someone and pour your heart & soul into it, u get hurt. Stuck between leaving or staying....

I don't know why I so love this song. Maybe because I am also loving someone who doesn't love me back.

I so don't want this to be true, but I guess I should just take it for what it is. So what does this mean? I've allready accepted we won't be anything more, and I don't even want to be now.

There is something in almost everyone of her songs that just makes you want to sing it and understand it and live in the moment of that song.
