John Fogerty – Between The Lines lyrics

Between the lines, that's wond'rin' what to say, when you ain't sayin' nothin',
Between the lines, that's thinkin' about the silence that hides behind your smile,
Between the lines, that's walkin' on eggshells that whisper keep your footing,
Between the lines, that's watchin' what you're doin', pretendin' to be blind.

The truth is just a shadow, you can never pin it down,
And the words are always hollow, never yes or no, they're in the middle ground.

Chorus:
Between the lines! between the lines!
Between the lines! between the lines!
Between the lines. between the lines.

Between the lines, that's tryin' to guess the meanin', when there ain't none to begin with,
Between the lines, that's waitin' for the warlord to drop the other shoe,
Between the lines, that's wond'rin' why the answer is just another question,
Between the lines, that's thinkin' about the shotgun that's lookin' straight at you.

I was just a shadow, and I never made a sound.
But how can you be livin', when you're just standin' there on the middle ground.

Chorus

Between the lines! between the lines!
Between the lines! between the lines!
Between the lines! between the lines!
Between the lines! between the lines!

Between the lines.
