Halfway House

Album: Rhythm & Romance (1985)
  • The summer was the killer
    Between our hearts and minds
    Every day a drama
    Dragging by in quarter time

    By summer it was over
    I couldn't see it through
    Trying not to lose my mind
    While I was leaving you

    Our friends are in the halfway house
    You're still on the mend
    Don't know if I've changed at all
    But I'm in love with you again
    We're all in the halfway house
    Or so it sometimes seems
    Trying to find the truth inside
    Instead of getting by on dreams

    In summer we were blinded
    We thought it couldn't last
    Crying 'bout the future
    And fighting 'bout the past

    The summer was no bargain
    And look at us today
    Running from the memory of
    The price we had to pay

    Our friends are in the halfway house
    You're still on the mend
    Don't know if I've changed at all
    But I'm In love with you again
    We're all in the halfway house
    Or so it sometimes seems
    Trying to find the truth inside
    Instead of getting by on dreams

    We're all in the halfway house
    Or so it sometimes seems
    Trying to find the truth inside
    Instead of getting by on dreams
    We're all in the halfway house
    I guess I always knew
    You could give up on yourself
    But I could not give up on you Writer/s: ROSANNE CASH
