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

Sara Bareilles - Between the Lines

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..
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
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.

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.

These lyrics are by Sara Bareilles, from Between the Lines. Posted at 11:02am on 21 April 2008.
