lyrics

Somewhere In Between (C F)

By the time you read this you’ll be 17
Smoking stolen cigarettes, writing bad poetry
Crushed out on a classmate who’s kind of a stoner
But you think she’s real cool and you wish you could know her.

By the time you read this you’ll be 22
Have your heart broken, a couple shitty tattoos.
High School will feel like a bad memory,
Now you’re washing the dishes at a place down on Holly.

CHORUS: BACKUP VOCALS: “SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN” x8

Somewhere in-between the stacks of book and papers,
Found a place to call your own and a reason to stay there
With a record collection, a single ray of light
You sleep through it every day, live only for the night.
Somewhere in-between the stacks of book and papers,
Found a place to call your own and a reason to stay there
With a record collection, a single ray of light
You sleep through it every day, live only for the night.

By the time you read this you’ll be 30-something
You’ll be out of the restaurants but you’ll still be hustling.
Free time will feel like a dream you have
About a time and a place you will never get back.

By the time you read this you’ll be nearly 40,
Have a real good laugh about a dog eared copy
Of Lesbian Poetry, the Anthology, from 1981
Sent like a time machine.

CHORUS: BACKUP VOCALS: “SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN” x8

Somewhere in-between the stacks of book and papers,
Found a place to call your own and a reason to stay there
With a record collection, a single ray of light
You sleep through it every day, live only for the night.
Somewhere in-between the stacks of book and papers,
Found a place to call your own and a reason to stay there
With a record collection, a single ray of light
You sleep through it every day, live only for the night.
