The Middle
Jimmy Eat World Lyrics


Hey
Don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

Hey
You know they're all the same
You know you're doing better on your own so don't buy in
Live right now
Yeah, just be yourself
It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

Hey
Don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out
Or looked down on
Just do your best
Do everything you can
And don't you worry what their bitter hearts are gonna say

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright

The One And Only Ravioli

Can't believe I just found out today that Jim wrote this song for a 13 year old fan who wrote the band asking for advice because she wasn't fitting in with the other punk kids at school. That honestly just makes this song even that much more better to me.

@Devil's Offspring you just pointed out you have no proof yet you're telling others they're wrong lol pot, kettle, black, try that one out!

weefek

that breaks my fucking heart

Devil's Offspring

@kirin-rex I agree, that's why I'm not dwelling on it like everyone else

kirin-rex

@Devil's Offspring You keep to telling people that not everything they see on the internet is true ... and that's true. But your comments on the origin of the song are, to everybody else, just anonymous comments ... wait for it ... on the internet. And your comments have even less authority than interviews or even Wikipedia. Those have sources, even the actual band saying they wrote the song. What do you have? Not even a name, or a date. Just that it was a Canadian ten-year old back in the 80s. There's nothing there that can be verified, and even you say you have no proof. Does that mean you're lying? No. But it also means that for most people, what you're saying has less evidence to support it than the official story. So stop going off on people about believing the official story if you have nothing to support your claim.

"It doesn't matter if you're good enough, for someone else" This is literally the greatest line, such a great saying to live by

Colette Nicoll

@WhiteEagleForce2.0 listen to the 2nd verse. The girl the song is written for isn't like everyone else - but the scene in the party/clip - is homogeneous. No one looks "different", they all look like catalogue models who can't even dance "in time"

Saul Goode

@Colette Nicoll unfortunately, it's my 40 years of experience, the record company is no absolutely nothing about music or truth or love or.....
I have things to do. I could go on forever.

Ray Soyars

you changed it a bit but thats cool, "you're" should be "it's" ...because it follows "just be your self..." i think the meaning is basically to fit in you don't have to buy in to other people's rhetoric... just be yourself...
