Between the Lines
...doesn't know if she's staying or she's leaving

Three blocks ea rly she gets off the bus
It's nice to walk for awhile
Fifteen steps past the liquor store
Is that same old place, with that same red door where
She doesn't know if she's staying or she's leaving
She isn't sure she knows how to read him

Between the lines
Between the lines
She just wants to be a little closer
Between the lines and a little closer

Keys in the mailbox is says in the note
"You can let yourself" - but that's a joke
She reads again the part where she can get in
But it's just not that easy
She knows it's not that easy
She doesn't know if she's staying or she's leaving
She isn't sure she knows how to read him

Between the lines
Between the lines
She just wants to be a little closer
Between the lines and a little closer

He's got no rings and she's got no inhibitions
Save for one or two
He rings her up when she's least prepared to say
She can't come over
He says "why don't you come over"
She doesn't know if she's staying or she's leaving
She isn't sure she knows how to read him

Between the lines
Between the lines
She just wants to be a little closer
Between the lines and a little closer
Between the lines
Between the lines
She just wants to be a little closer
Between the lines and a little closer
And she just wants to be a little closer
Between the lines and a little closer
