​In The Middle

This song is by Robert Hazard and appears on the album The Seventh Lake (2004).

I want to stand in the middle again
Here in my circle of friends
Warmed by the light of the fire burnin' bright
I want to stand in the middle again

I want to walk in the middle this time
Not too far ahead or behind
With an eye on the track and no trouble at my back
I want to walk in the middle this time

I want to stay in the middle with you
There is nothin' that I wouldn't do
I'll rise and shine just to walk that line
I want to stay in the middle with you

I've lived on the border, slept with one eye open
Made a friend of danger at my door
But now I need some comfort, a ring of love around me
I don't want to be a stranger anymore

I want to be in the middle of love
I would never be too high above
Rich or poor, who could ask for more?
Than to be in the middle of love

I want to live in the middle of life
I want to lick all the honey off the knife
I want to take ev'ry man and shake him by the hand
I want to live in the middle of life

I've been small and frightened, I've been larger than life
Been flushed and been stripped down to the bone
Been light as a feather, soared like a kite
And fell to the bottom like a stone

Yes, I've been to the middle of hell
From the top to the bottom of the well
Burned by fame and lost without a name
Yes, I've been to the middle of hell

I want to stand in the middle again
Here in my circle of friends
Let the songs resound from the mountains all around
And let us stand the middle again
