"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Mat Kearney - In the Middle

I meant it all, and every part, and every word right from the start—I’ll never let this love fall in the middle
Cuz you know you broke the hardest part, you know you broke the hardest heart—I’ll never let this love fall in the middle

Through it all

Fifteen years old in a sea of blank faces,
swimming bold against the stream that’s mocking as it races
in these halls, mountain high under, under a tangerine sky,
crack a smile just to hide the race that’s inside

Eighteen years old, bags packed and a pass for the rail,
one last look at the past, he drowns in the hail
one in a million, still I keep feeling you keep me from a fall
a word to lose coming back with you tall.

Through it all.

No parachutes or safety nets here;
one foot in the water to face these fears.
Coming out strong like I can’t be wrong,
I said, hey..I won’t fall in the middle.

Twenty-five here I am with freshman LPs,
one life to write one, two years to repeat..
behind a curtain, uncertain if an encore’s in store.
Tuck my shoulder like a soldier to knock down the door.

Thirty-something, here I’m running with kisses for one girl,
these scars upon my sleeve, still casting out my pearls
throw each stone microphone like it’s my last turn,
with a kiss to the abyss and watch the ripples return

Through it all.

No parachutes or safety nets here;
one foot on the water to face these fears.
I’m coming out strong like I can’t be wrong,
I said, hey..I won’t fall
No parachutes or safety nets here;
one foot on the water to face these fears.
I’m coming out strong like I can’t be wrong,
I said, hey.. I won’t fall in the middle.

I said I’m gonna be alright, I’m gonna be alright
with you by my side.
And I said I’m gonna be alright, I’m gonna be alright
with you through this fight.

Through it all.

No parachutes or safety nets here;
one foot on the water to face these fears.
I’m coming out strong and I can’t be wrong,
I said, hey..I won’t fall
No parachutes or safety nets here;
one foot on the water to face these fears.
I’m coming out strong like I can’t be wrong,
I said, hey.. I won’t fall in the middle.

I meant it all and every part
and every word right from the start,
I’ll never let this love fall in the middle
Through it all.
