Between the Lines
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


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
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
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
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

Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened
You and me 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

I think i depends on what part of your life you are now.

Little voice was about travels and beginnings and young heartbreaks

Kaleidoscope heart was about the journey in LA

Blessed unrest was New york and starting from scratch

Amidst the chaos was deep adult things, content and her mature take on songwriting


The best things about her songs are that in any point of your life applicable to anyone.

No right minds could wrong be this many times

My memory is cruel

If only I had been listening

Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened

Between the lines

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

Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened
You and me
Always be
You and me
Always between the lines

"Time to tell me the truth" - I'm not lying to you, but I'm not telling you everything either.
"To burden your mouth for what you say" - You mean those twisted words? This is to show you that there are often several meanings. You can choose yourself. And after all, I know how your judgments turn into prejudices. I finally experienced it.
"No pieces of paper in the way" - I kind of liked these little notes. But it showed me that we don't spend enough time together. Similar now on this way.
"'Cause I can't continue pretending to choose" - I've never stood in your way. Always accepted your decisions, also this dog-sleeping thing on the bottom. Supports you, even if I have made it to you every now and then through my way (in German the word "art" is before my way. Always this loss of meaning through different language. *grumble). I always knew you could do it. I never questioned that.
"These opposite sides on which we fall" - Why is that? I support you as far as I can. But I'm 6 feet under now. I like it. It's ok for me, can be a nice future. Most of all I want to breed butterflies.
"The loving-you-laters, if at all" - Why these doubts? Of course i love you! OK. At least the projection of a person from the past into you. Great woman!
"No right minds could wrong be" - LOL - that's right. I think that's bad at the same time. Love cannot be calculated. Not erasable for me.
"This many times" - Yes, yes. I'll put another shovel on it.

"My memory is cruel" - It´s little bit tricky.
"I'm queen of attention to details" - LOL - you give yourself titles? OK ... where is my label machine *rummaging around looking ... You know me *laugh ... ah there it is. Hmmm ... I'll leave that. You are not there, that I can stick the sticker on your forehead. The detail of that is the lettersign. Giants needs little bit bigger. And of course... me too... loving details everyday.
"Defending intentions if he fails" - That´s simple. I never doo this.
"Until now: he told me her name" - Yapp.
"It sounded familiar in a way" - Yapp.
"And I could have sworn I'd heard him say it" - Sure. I understand this Queenstyle. Its respectful funny. Have you a protocol?
"Ten thousand times" - Hmm ... reminds me of Jeepers Creepers and the crack in the record.
"Oh, If only I had been listening" - I know. I then switch to Analyze Frequencies. See curves there.

"Leave unsaid unspoken" - *smile
"Eyes wide shut, unopened" - Yapp. I don't want to see everything.
"You and me" - Output - input - memories - feelings - output
"Always between the lines" - Bad right? I don't understand why they always quarrel so strangely.
"Between the lines" - ;o*

"I thought I, thought I was ready to bleed" - Does the chatter really never stop? I mean this fighting.
"That we'd move from the shadows on the wall" - The last time I saw you, you sat on the wall. But you had your watchdogs with you again. And you didn't say hello either.
"And stand in the center of it all" - Ehm... yapp. But its little bit bigger as you think.
"Too late, two choices: to stay or to leave" - Right.
"Mine was so easy to uncover" - Yapp. Not bad. I can understand it.
"He'd already left with the other" - Nope. Hey... you know the Phantom of the opera!
"So I've learned to listen through silence" - At the moment I hear a rustling in the silence.

"Leave unsaid unspoken" - Some of the things that have been said are inconsiderate.
"Eyes wide shut, unopened" - Hmmm ... I see you sometimes.
"You and me, always be–" - Hmmm... that hurts.
You and me, always be– - Don´t know what you mean.

"I tell myself all the words he surely meant to say" - Do you have that much time? Several books would not be enough. If you just want to hear words. A book can describe stroking your face on 1000 pages and yet it will never reflect the touch.
"I'll talk until the conversation doesn't stay on" - Hmmm... Enjoying the silence together isn't wrong either.
"Wait for me, I'm almost ready" - I need you to be ready.
"When he meant, "Let go"" - You forget the ´s.

Leave unsaid unspoken - Yapp.
Eyes wide shut, unopened - Sad. If you look with my eyes and mind, you can see the beauty in this tragedy.
You and me, always be– - Maybe.
You and me, always between the lines - Lines?
Between the lines - How many books are exist about us?
Between the lines - Can we fix this?

English isn't my first language and I don't understand the concept behind this song.
Would you tell me what's the song about?
