The Middle

from by Jeremy Blake

lyrics

You ever had a thought
So sure it's new
Come to find out a thousand people already knew
Well you're not alone
It could happen to anyone

Mama always said
I had a heart of gold
And I believed her, always did as I was told
Wonder what she'd think
If she knew I stole this melody

Taken by surprise
Dropping this disguise
Saying my goodbyes to wonderful

Everybody get up
Yeah come and put me down
If I can't be at the top
Doesn't mean I'm gonna stop
Gonna find my place in the middle

Everybody what's up
Is this life beating you down
If you feel you're gonna jump
Hey let's go fuck it up
For the top
Come fight with me for the middle

Was a gifted kid
Thought I knew my place
Until the world wen and thew it all back in my face
Now I gotta laugh
It could happen to anyone

What's a dream to do
When a kid wakes up
Half-full or empty 40 years it's the same old cup
And it cuts deep
But I found a remedy

Taken by surprise
Time to improvise
Saying my goodbyes to wonderful

Everybody get up
Yeah come and put me down
If I can't be at the top
Doesn't mean I'm gonna stop
Gonna find my place in the middle

Everybody what's up
Is this life beating you down
If you feel you're gonna jump
Hey let's go fuck it up
For the top
Come fight with me for the middle

Yeah let's hear 3 cheers for the middle
