Between the Lines ~ What's Your Song? {1}


I came across this fun meme about music and I knew I must join in! If there's anything I love as much as I love books, it would have to be music.

I chose Between the Lines, not only because I love the song, but because I tend to feel like this a lot...




Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles

Time
To tell me the truth
To burden your mouth for what you say
Pieces of paper in the way
Because I can't continue
Pretending to choose
These opposite sides on which we fall
Loving you later's 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
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
It would move from 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 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

Yah! Thanks so much for linking up! What a beautiful song! And I love watching her sing it, it brings even more meaning to the song watching her perform it.

Great song pick! I hope you come back next week, same place, same time, different song;)

What a gorgeous song and one of my favorites! I have it on my "Rainy Days" play list for when I'm in the mood for something blue :) Thanks for sharing!
