For all of those that are middle siblings

Lyrics: 

In the Middle

V1
fighting for yourself
wanting to be heard
never winning
in a first
comes first world

middle of the road
part of life’s riddle
when we are stuck
in the middle

riddles that are told
riddles that grow old
about why we
do what we do

C
in the middle
in between
lost in shadows
of everything

in the middle
in the between
never central
to anything
or anyone
ohhh...
in the middle
is not much fun

V2
feeling all alone
waiting to be heard
never having
a say or
the last word

middle of the road
always second fiddle
when we are stuck
in the middle

fiddles without strings
fiddles that can’t sing
songs about who
we want to be

C
in the middle
in between
lost in shadows
of everything

in the middle
in the between
never central
to anything
or anyone
ohhh....
in the middle
is not much fun

B
too young for this
too old for that
too small for this
too big for that
never in the
right place
or in the
right time
never being
first place
or the babe
in their eye

C
in the middle
in between
lost in shadows
of everything
ohhh...
in the middle
in the between
never central
to anything
or anyone

in the middle
is not much fun

Catchy and true! I'm next to last of 7 and the older lids just called us "Little kids"

Rhythmic lyric. Lots of middle and riddles. I'm middle of three but actually liked the anonymity. But I can see your point and very poetically put.

What they said too. But I really love the too young/old small/big etc B(ridge)!
