The Middle (Album Version)

The Middle (Album Version)

Jon McLaughlin

I've been around for a little over 20 years.
And to anyone who needs advice on getting here.
Don't ask me, the path I took was not exactly by the book, by the book.
I was too young to know and to dumb to figure out.
That you can lose yourself in all this traveling around.
When you reach a point of no return losing touch with lesson learned, lessons learned.
Let me tell you now where I went wrong.
Hollywood is just another place I don't belong.

[Chorus]
Let's go to the middle where time stands still.
Let's get lost in those hills.
Live a little closer to what is true.
I'll be me and you be you.

I'm finding out the ways of this world can we overcome with one boy's love for just one girl.
And the only way to love yourself.
Is to give your love to someone else, someone else.
Don't believe in everything you hear.
Growing up is more than just living through the years.

[Chorus]

I'm disappointed in myself.
I left you on a shelf that I could never reach.
I practiced what you'd always preached against.
But now I'm back in my defense.
That black and white world we tried to paint is really gray.
So it took a little while to get this right.
The guilty and the innocent are always side by side.

[Chorus]
