BETWEEN THE LINES Janis Ian There's never much to say between the moments of our games and repartee There's never much to read betweeen the lines of what we need and what we'll take There's never much to talk about or say aloud, but say it anyway Of holidays and yesterdays, and broken dreams that somehow slipped away In books and magazines on how to be and what to see while you are being Before and after photographs teach how to pass from reaching to believing We live beyond our means on other people's dreams and that's succeeding Between the lines of photographs I've seen the past -- it isn't pleasing So strike another match We'll have another cup of wine And dance until the evening's dead Of too much song and time There's never much to speak about Or read between the lines Of what we dream about When we're apart And no one's looking on To say you're mine It was a good year then, it was a good year then, we all remember The time you threw the looking glass and seemed a fool or very clever Don't spoil it all, I can't recall a time when you were struck without an answer We'll live a quiet peaceful time between the lines and go together And I'm striking up the band to play our last hurrah We'll dance until we've killed another evening off Don't think of anyone but me I'll have no lovers on the side Tonight is all we've ever dreamed about For once let's get it right We'll go down flying in the end Through another bottle in between the lines I'll go down like a ship of state Let's be gracious now Between the lines (Contributed by =Ae= - May 2012)
