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 cant continue pretending to choose
The 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
Im 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
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've learned to listen through silence"

  1. Come on my dear, listen to Ella.....

    Come to me my melancholy baby,
    Cuddle up and don't be blue . . .
    All your fears are foolish fancy, maybe
    You know dear that I'm in love with you!

    Every cloud must have a silver lining
    Wait until the sun shines through
    Smile my honey dear, while I kiss away each tear
    Or else I shall be melancholy too!
