I'm listening that song right now:bleh:

 

Stuck In The Middle lyrics

 

I sit and think about the day that you're gonna die,

'Cause your wrinkled eyes betrayed the joy with which you smiled.

Care to see my reason?

Care to put your life in mine?

Looking at life from the perspective of a boy

Who's learnt to love you but has also learned to grow.

Could we make it better, stormy weather?

So I dunno.

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who will believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

 

I look at you,

You look at me,

We bite each other.

And with your better words you kick me in the gutter.

But my troops are bigger than yours

'Cause you'll never stand my fight.

Ours is a family that's based upon tradition

But with my careless words I tread upon your vision.

Are five kids better than one, who'd busy like to be gone?

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...

 

This is to my name,

This ain't a pretty plan to break your heart of me.

I know that what I've started means that when we have parted

I can live in honesty.

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle

 

But I don't really know the meaning of the song.

hey everyone, my english isn't very good and i can't understand the meaning of the song "stuck in the middle" some say it has something to do with mika's most personal secrets and stuff so what's the song about and what's the story behind it?.

thanks

 

I'd say that is a question which can only be answered by the songwriter himself. Anything else is up to our interpretation (and doesn't necessarily make sense :bleh: - what a pun!) I would reckon for myself that it could deal with certain generation gap caused conflicts within a big family in general. But you don't really have to read between the lines to come to that conclusion. :roftl:

Besides I think that the same song can have as many meanings as there are people listening to just because everybody has a different background of experience.....

I think the lyrics are a bit inaccurate.... Or maybe I'm hearing them wrong myself...:blink:

this song has always been a total mystery to me..:shocked: but i love it, especially when performed live (the best! i love when he sang it in Hollywood!) or in the acoustic version: it's so involving!

I don't have an explanation for the meaning behind the song, sorry:blush-anim-cl: but a few of the words in the lyrics posted are just a little wrong I think,... I'll just post the link to 2 big times the words were written out

I was thinking about this song too. I noticed in an interview he explained about the meaning of every song but this one. For some reason when i listen to the lyrics i get the interpretation it has to do with a family member. Its just my opinion and i could be wrong that since he doesnt talk about his dad much that maybe its based about some conflicts he has with his dad? Dont quote me on it but its just a thought.

yeah, he said he doesn't like to talk about it, so let's not talk about it. :wink2:

 

I have got my own ideas about its inspiration, that's to do with our boy himself, but (hence the above) I'm not gonna share it.

 

 

in any case, this song's a TRUE masterpiece. got to be my fave song ever (sharing 1st place with other 2, not mika's, old loves of mine). :mf_rosetinted:

If you go to this website http://www.mikablog.com/ and go to the LICM In His Words you can read what every song means to him and for that song it says that he wants it to be kept a secret.

Stuck In the Middle is my absolut favourite song!:blush-anim-cl:

 

My interpretation of this song is like this:

I think about it like a conversation between a parent and a teenager in a really close relationship.

You don't want to hurt each other, but you do sometimes, because you are in so different places in your lifes and with very different goals at the time.

I could have had this kind of conversation with my mother when I was growing up.

But this is only how I like to think about it.:wink2:

 

And a fan-club for this song...I'm in!!:thumb_yello:

it's not so i dunno, it's so hard to know, who won't believe me , won't decieve me, won't try and change me...sorry i had to fix that...and incase no one said anything (haven't read the whole thread) the song is about his mom his grandma and his family..(middle child=stuck in the middle)
