Excuse me for a while,
While I’m wide eyed and so damn caught in the middle
I excused you for a while,
While I’m wide eyed and so damn caught in the middle
And a lion, a lion, roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not … them

Chorus:
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Excuse me for a while,
Turn a blind eye with a stare caught right in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down you’re caught in the middle
If a lion, a lion, roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not … them

Chorus:
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Excuse me for a while,
While I’m wide eyed and so damn caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down you’re caught in the middle

Chorus:
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might speak so long
I’ve never been so wrong
Yeah I might seem so strong
Yeah I might sṗeak so long
I’ve never been so wrong

:unsure: Bit of a weird day, weird feelings, ok, but there, you know, there, not sure, good but not good. I don't know. On the verge of big changes, tennants out, house sold, debts paid, flat bought, exchange next Monday, big changes ahead, going to be living alone, no lodger, no brother in the spare room, just me, myself and i. Worried i will die in that flat, worried i will vegetate, spend the days in a drunken stupour. I carry around with me such a lot of pain.

hey tropical, there is a favourite lyrics thread in the chill out section. Not that you can't start you own one hunny-i'm not the forum police lol.

I'm putting these lyrics on for you hunny. It's about the past and then looking into yourself... so it's apt for you <3<3 xxx

Well I looked into a house I once lived in
Around the time I first went on my own
When the roads were as many as the places I had dreamed of
And my friends and I were one
Now the distance is done and the search has begun
I've come to see where my beginnings have gone

Oh the walls and the windows were still standing
And the music could be heard at the door
Where the people who kindly endured my odd questions
Asked if I came very far
And when my silence replied they took me inside
Where their children sat playing on the floor

Well we spoke of the changes that would find us farther on
And it left me so warm and so high
But as I stepped back outside to the grey morning sun
I heard that highway whisper and sigh
Are you ready to fly?

And I looked into the faces all passing by
It's an ocean that will never be filled
And the house that grows older and finally crumbles
That even love cannot rebuild
It's a hotel at best, you're here as a guest
You oughta make yourself at home while you're waiting for the rest

Well I looked into dream of the millions
That one day the search will be through
Now here I stand at the edge of my embattled illusions
Looking into you
