Lyrics

In Between

Written By: Drew Allison, Dave Ramsay

Little girl, what the hell do you know about this life?
In haze of patchouli
You truly can’t see I’m right
All the young boys you once kept in your diary
Escaped from the pages and into your dreams
So soon you will see
Just how hard it can be

In between

Daddy gets the weekends
And your Mommy rules this house
So they fight for your freedom
They’ll still never let you out
One day they’ll pay for the mess that they’ve made you
One day you won’t have to be seventeen
Until that day’s here
You’ll be hiding somewhere

In between
— all the times that you promised you were leaving
You never knew how to be
In between — the hard lines of your life you survive
In between

On a shelf, in the wall, all your dolls from limb to limb
When a voice on a radio show seems your only friend
Mommy’s new boyfriend says “you’re getting pretty”
You keep it all in till you just want to scream
For now you’ll exist while you’re paying for this

In between

Little girl, what the hell do you know about this life?
Someday we’ll pay for the mess that we’ve made you
Somewhere when you’re far beyond seventeen
Someday somebody will take you from here
In between

In between — the hard lines of life you’re leading
In between — All the times that you soon would be leaving
You will bury the weight of the shame that they gave you.
Oh, someday they will pay for the mess that they’ve made you
