Back To The Middle Lyrics

Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Every day was another fish tank and your head
Swims around and you wrote us a letter
Sayin' things will get much better, goes
Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Every night, there's a tiny porch light in our chest
Pulls clouds of bugs to flutter
We felt loved as they carried us, carried us

Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Our head is a cage and the parrot loves to talk

We built a cabin and we built a castle
I just don't believe it was worth all the hassle, you know?
We lived in cities and we lived in caves
I guess I'd like to move back to the middle again

Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Our head is a cage and the parrot, it won't shut up

Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Now and then we would take our ladder and
See if we will climb to the heavens or
Shift our gaze and climb down to never go
Back to the middle and don't you remember?
Every winter, we would wish it were warmer and
Every summer, I will knit you a sweater
Scratch words in the dirt to remember that
We're up here right now, not forever, we'll
Be pulled right back down to the middle again
