Between The Lines (Album Version)

Sara Bareilles

Time... to tell me the truth
To burden your mouth for what you say
No pieces of the paper in the way
Cause i can't continue pretending to choose
This 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 intetions if the fails, until now
He told me her name
It sounded familiar in a way
I could have swor i'd heard him say in ten thousand times
Ohh 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, thought i was ready to bleed
That we'd move from the shadows on the wall
And 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


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
