Middles Lyrics

(Stafford/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
At the middle of your eye
lives the one, absolute dark,
lying between sigh and comply,
sometimes a girl, sometimes a mark.

Verse 2
Dark, like the middle of your soul
lies between hope and the night,
it’s a title role,
one committing a slight.

Chorus
Oh, you love your riddles,
with no ends or middles,
hearing distant fiddles . . .
Oh, you love your riddles.

Verse 3
Irony seeks a fresh metaphor,
so look deeply into your eye,
see your middling shore:
birth and the time you die.

Verse 4
In the middle of your soul
is joy, and a black dearth,
can’t be healed or made whole
by anything on this Earth.

Chorus
Oh, you love your riddles,
with no ends or middles,
hearing distant fiddles . . .
Oh, you love your riddles.

Bridge
Our Earth, a strange, blue dot
in the middle of a black sea,
an eye of what we see,
it has us caught, our lot,
purposely a riddle,
with us in the middle,
with us in the middle.

Long Instrumental

Chorus
Oh, you love your riddles,
with no ends or middles,
hearing distant fiddles . . .
Oh, you love your riddles.

Short Instrumental

Ending

Caught between peace and fury,
you choose whether love or glory,
between parents and children,
hauling love or the caldron.

You make final amends,
hoping always you have no ends,
but only middles, and more middles.

I want to lay down next to you.
