Between the lines...

Going home a little early tonight, a gust of freezing air and the sound of "Between the lines" bring me thinking back to you.

I smile, but faintly. One of those small smiles.
Timing sometimes is just... serendipitous.

Time, to tell me the truth
It's time, really
To burden your mouth for what you say
No pieces of paper in the way
Though there weren't really any.
Just a lot of smiles
And tons of flirting.
'Cause I can't continue, pretending to choose
These opposite sides on which we fall
Loving you laters if at all
As always.
Will it be different... ever?

No right minds could wrong be, this many times
And yet they are. All of them.
Even if they don't know it.
Even if they keep believing in something that might (never) be
My memory is cruel
I'm queen of attention to details
Defending intentions if he fails
And then. it was never really necessary

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
An innocent question during a meal.
It's out.
I'm surprised, but try not to show it.
A stolen glance. you keep the answers short.
There, see? You were all wrong.
But how could you tell?

Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened
Will I ever stop?
You and me
Always between the lines
Between the lines
Cause it's so fun.
So fun.

I thought I, I thought I was ready to bleed
That we'd move from the shadows on the wall
And stand in the center of it all
Cause we have, right?
1 minute I blurt it out, and the next we're making jokes about it.
Too late, two choices to stay or to leave
Mine was so easy to uncover
He'd already left with the other
So I've learned to listen through silence
And to make a pass... Quickly

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
Sometimes, in my dreams, that is.
And before everything finished before it even started.
I'll talk until the conversation doesn't stay on
Cause that is how I hide.
Wait for me, I'm almost ready
When he meant let go
At least he was honest enough to also say it.
Out loud.
Even if it hurt.

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
