Between The Lines Lyrics - Sara Bareilles

Review The Song (4)

Time to tell me the truth
To burden your mouth for what you say
No pieces of paper in the way
Cause i cant 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
Im 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

Correction only but critival | Reviewer: Gigette | 11/14/12

All these sites have a critical lyric wrong I think. It changes the meaning of the line and maybe the song:

I can't CONTEND YOU pretending to choose.

He's the one faking it, not her.

Listen carefully, she has beautiful diction, you can't help but hear it this way. I doubt many use this word in this way and not use to hearing it.

This song is the current state of my life. | Reviewer: Annie | 7/25/09

This song is about when you truly realize what you knew all along. They're cheating. You don't want to admit it, because you can't. You don't want to ask because you know the answer you'll hear is not the one you'll like. It's no longer between the lines, it's obvious. But you love them so much, you can't let go. It's too late. He's gone. This song is less about "how dare he cheat on me" and more about "I can't believe he's gone. This must not be real" You love them too much to be angry. You love them too much to let go. But you have to.

Interpretation? | Reviewer: Maggie | 4/1/08

I think this song is about holding on when you know it's too late. It's about a cheating lover whose significant other knows what's going on, but can't admit it to him or herself. It's about feeling trapped in a relationship. I have a hard time putting into words all the emotion I think this song carries. What are everyone else's opinions?

Piano Pop! | Reviewer: Jax | 3/9/08

Most people tend to overlook the rest of Little Voice, just because Love Song is such a big hit, but the whole CD is really amazing. As I told my best friend when trying to explain Sara Bareilles to her, it's "piano pop."

This is my current favorite song (I listen to music all day long so it generally changes every few days) and I was kinda surprised nobody had left a "review" for it yet. Honestly, these things aren't really reviews...they're interesting anecdotes, "OMG THIS SONG IS AMAZING!!!!!!", or "ths band sux." Anyway, I get to see her in concert next month, and I'm definitely going to be looking forward to her singing this song.
