Janis Ian
There's never much to say
            C/G                           Fmaj7
Between the moments of our games and repartee
        Am             Am+7
There's never much to read
            Am7              Am6                 Fmaj7
Between the lines of what we need and what we'll take
        Dm            Dm+7          F/C
There's never much to talk about or say aloud
    Bm7-5      E7sus    E
But say it any – way
   Am           Am7/G           F
Of holidays and yesterdays, and broken dreams
     E7sus    E7         Am        E7
That somehow slipped a – way

   Am               Am/G#           Am/G           Am/F#
In books and maga - zines on how to be and what to see
While you are being
   Am              Am/G#
Be-fore and after photographs
      Am/G             Am/F#          Fmaj7
Teach how to pass from reaching to be-lieving
   Dm              Dm/C#          Dm/C           Dm/B
We live beyond our means on other people's dreams
               E7sus        E7
And that's suc-ceeding
  Am                 Am/G             Fmaj7
Between the lines of photographs I've seen the past
E7         Am          A7
  It isn't pleasing

So strike another match

We'll have another cup of wine
And dance until the evening's dead

Of too much song and time
        Dm            C#+
There's never much to talk about
   F/C              Bm7-5
Or read between the lines
Of what we dream about

When we're apart
And no one's looking on
              Am       Esus
To say you're mine

E          Am                       C/G
  It was a good year then, it was a good year then

We all remember
    Am                 Am+7              Am7          Am6
The time you threw the looking glass and seemed a fool
Or very clever
      Dm              Dm+7           Dm/C
Don't spoil it all, I can't recall a time
              Bm7-5             E7sus   E7
When you were struck without an answer
       Am          Am/G             Am/F
We'll live a quiet peaceful time be-tween the lines
Esus    E7     Am         A7
    And go to-gether

And I'm striking up the band to play our last hurrah
We'll dance until we've killed another evening off
Don't think of anyone but me

I'll have no lovers on the side
Tonight is all we've ever dreamed about
For once let's get it right
We'll go down flying in the end
          E7sus          E             Am      A7
Throw an-other bottle in between the lines
I'll go down like a ship of state
Let's be gracious now
E              Am     E7
  Between the lines
Am     E7      Am      E7
