The Middle Lyrics - Jimmy Eat World



Review The Song (117)


Hey, don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, you know they're all the same.
You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just do your best, do everything you can.
And don't you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say.

It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Great song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/21/13

Great song, really gave me hope when I first heard it. For some reason this comment page has turned into a spelling war. Everyone is entitled to make mistakes. But then there are some people who 'hav 2 spl lik dis all da time!' which I really dislike. All the people on this page who thinks 'I know how to use the word gauntlet so I'm amazing!' - seriously childish. I'm also willing to bet I'm half your age! ( Unless you're like 10 or something) Great song thoygh. It's ironic how people say 'don't care about what others say' then moan about spelling. Seriously guys?

Reminds me of it all... | Reviewer: Mickey | 6/12/13

I really love this song, and whenever I hear it, it reminds me of how I moved on with my life, a little by little. I used to be bullied and didn't have any friends, plus I had a very VERY violent dad, and I walked around as an empty shade who didn't trust anyone and didn't show any emotions. But when I got to a new school, everything started to change, and as it says in the song; "it just takes some time, everything will be just fine, and everything will be alright." And it's true - everything do get better. Even for me. Though 16 years of my life was being soiled by violence, solitude and bullying, I realized that there was nothign wrong with me. I was just like everybody else and I became the happy-go-lucky 18 year old girl I am today. And this song really reminds me of all the hardships I've overcome and that everything gets better with time! And I don't even give a shit about other people's opinions of me anymore! This song really says so much!

Amazing | Reviewer: TK | 5/6/13

This year Im graduating Highschool... but as an 11th grader. I found this a great accomplishment to myself, and yet I got alot of comments saying that it was a mistake and I shouldnt leave. Then because I want to go to Cosmetology school, I get crap for that too. And this song reminds me that who cares what they say, its what I want :)

Just a part of my life philosophy. | Reviewer: Andrea | 9/27/12

I just started highschool and it's been pretty rough. Plus getting braces, no dates and barely enough friends. I'm not shy I'm just not too well known. I'm not ugly I'm just not oh my God drop dead. But, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder so if you constantly see your ugly, you might as well be. You are beautiful no matter what people say. It's the inside that counts. And God made you just like that for a reason. Maybe your short because one day in your life something is gonna fall and miss your head. Or maybe you don't have that many friends, you'd rather have four quarters than 100 pennies. An you don't have to have a boyfriend/ girlfriend to be happy, be happy with yourself and someone will see that and like it. I'm just saying everything can be worse. Yeah you might not have friends, a family, the looks etc. But, look past that one day you can grow up and leave go be who you wanna be. If you like wearing mix-matched clothes do it. Life is too short to worry about what other people think. I'd rather die tommorrow in mix-matched pj's that make me happy than uncomfortable and unhappy. God bless. :) Jesus loves you

A song with truth | Reviewer: Renee | 5/7/12

There are many times when I feel down, or alone, or unwanted but this song instantly lifts my spirits! I don't think that I've ever heard a song with as much truth as this one. To everyone, just hang in there! I promise that everything WILL get better with time! Life is a ride, sometimes you will put your hands in the air and scream, and other times you will be gripping that safety bar in front of you for dear life. But in the end all that we can hope for is that our hair is messed up, smiles on our faces, and that we have a burning desire to keep on going. Keep it up everyone! And by the way this song is absolutely amazing!

Sure | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/6/12

While I agree with your point, I find it a bit ironic that you wrote "You also spelt "consequences" wrong." Spelt is not a word, unless you are from Britain. If you are, my apologies. If not, I think you mean "spelled."

Great song by the way indeed.

Another Dear Adam | Reviewer: Krisantha Moodley | 2/4/12

LOL :p Seriously? You also spelt "consequences" wrong.
People who think they know everything annoy those of us who do.
Oh, and the irony of you dissing "the losers" from behind that keyboard. Just like the stupid version of the hacker: performing morally questionable acts while being sheltered by the anonymity that the internet offers.
I'd say you should get an education before even considering getting a life ;)

Great song btw.

Dear Adam, | Reviewer: Daphne Greengrass | 1/11/12

You misspelled 'find' as 'fing'.

Granted, you'll probably never see this, but in case you do, just know everyone's entitled to his or her opinion.

So get your glove. (That's what a gauntlet is, by the way, in case you were wondering. But you probably knew that, since you claim to have a firm grasp on the English language).

Normally I don't call people out on their bullshit, but this was just too tempting since apparently I am a douchebag, as your review stated.

P.S. I like this song.

Dear douchebags, | Reviewer: Adam | 1/3/12

First off, you have no idea how much this song applies to you. Also, the people who you call losers are the ones who won out, while you sit back, calling yourself "Anonymous", because you're either too scared to face the concequences of someone knowing who you are, or you're a large underground network of hackers with the right morals but slightly drastic methods. But that second option is highly unlikely, because hackers are intelligent, and know how to correctly command the English language. Read through this and fing a single grammatical or spelling mistake, and I will recover my gauntlet from where I have thrown it at your feet.

Wow | Reviewer: Stephen F. | 12/7/11

I haven't heard this song since middle school, and yet it always seems to take you to a place where nothing else matters. Friends have come and gone but "it just takes some time" till everything works itself out. Soon I'm joining the Navy, and God knows what will happen to me, but I'm positive that I will lose some friendships and gain others. Here's to what is going to come. :)

... not much to say | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/11

When I was lost over the past year really depressed, I thought about ending it almost all the time. I just couldn’t take pretending I was happy anymore. I had the radio on when I was about to… and this song found me and I know but it has helped me so much. So here’s to you I love you and so do a lot of other people, more than you would know. My brain went a wall and this song saved me, sick right but it did. I know if your reading this it has helped you too… or it will… when you need it.

it sucks. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/11

it sucks that some people really just don't understand how music works for some other people. this song is amazing. it really can help. music really does help. and you'll never really know unless you yourself have experienced it. and unless you've got experience, you've got no right to talk crap about the song and the people it's helped. right? yup

favorite song for rockband | Reviewer: jill espie | 9/10/11

whenever i play rockband on the psp, i always play this super awesome song...it makes me feel so upbeat...i love this song so much!!! i even make my friends listen to it while i play..they say it's such a cool song. even my 6yr old nephew loves it, he even dances with the song. haha
