The Middle Ground

  • You illuminate me
    You're the color I see
    You're all the shines above
    Through the dark and mistrust

    All the doubt in your eyes
    All the stars in the night
    Is it the distance you need
    Or is it just me?

    I know you're awake
    'Cause you shake when you cry
    As long as I wait,
    I've got nothing but time

    Take me in, or just take me out
    Put me on if you must, or just put me down
    'Cause I'm done, I'm all worn out
    We're either alive or a lie
    I'm done with the middle ground.

    You're the wind at my back
    You're the courage I lack
    But you live your life like a war
    What are you fighting for?

    Your touch is the water
    That gives and takes away
    So I wait in the gutter
    For another rainy day

    Take me in, or just take me out
    Put me on if you must, or just put me down
    'Cause I'm done, I'm all worn out
    We're either alive or a lie
    I'm done with the middle ground.

    You close your eyes to see the sun
    And all the things you've never done
    They all come out in the dark
    And once again just break your heart

    I know you're awake
    'Cause you shake when you cry
    I'll hold you, I'll hold you,
    But you've got to decide

    Take me in, or just take me out
    Put me on if you must, or just put me down
    'Cause I'm done, I'm all worn out
    We're either alive or a lie, oh
    We're either alive or a lie
    I'm done with the middle ground.

    I'm done with the middle ground.
    I'm done with the middle ground.
    Done with the middle ground.

    I'm done with the middle ground.
    I'm done with the middle ground. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
