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

A song so good it's time stamped into history as the good old days music. Rare to pull it off.

Oi

Boomken76

is there anything more unifying about having hope as kid and this is that message, I would hope its remembered.

Loch4u

That's a pretty accurate description

@Muikku - "Next it'll be the 2010s and that's already happening."
Those kids are still young; their good old days are now, despite all that's happening. They don't need to focus on their pre-teen years so much and just live life the best they can, and make more good old days by 40. "Live right now, and just be yourself."

Was crying from an anxiety attack so I listened to this. Still crying, but it's from relief now instead of anxiety. This song feels like it reaches into my heart and scoops out all the bad feelings. I won't say it cured my depression and anxiety, but it was definitely a puff of fresh air from the stifling emotions.

Brian Lane

You seem fun.

Whatever you're going through you'll get through it. I know exactly how you feel, I have experienced quite a few of them in the past few months. It helps to call a friend and unfortunately sometimes drinking is necessary if it's an anxiety attack. But we as humans are resilient, and whatever you are going through, you will overcome it. Stay strong.

Mage

That's just about the best thing you can say about a song or really anything. If a piece of art can pull you out of your feelings and let you take a breath it's done its job pretty hard.
