​The Middle

This song is by Jon McLaughlin and appears on the album OK Now (2008).

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 too 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 lessons learned
Lessons learned
Let me tell you now where I went wrong
Hollywood is just another place I don't belong

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 be overcome with one boy's love for just one girl
And the only way to love yourself
Give your love to someone else
Someone else
Don't believe in everything you hear
Growing up is more than simply living through the years

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 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 time to get this right
The guilty and the innocent are always side by side

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'll be me and you be you
And I'll be me and you be you
