Listen & Lyrics: Alexander 23’s ‘Caught In The Middle’

By  | 

Alexander 23 released “Caught In The Middle,” an upbeat song about separating from a significant other.

“’Caught in the Middle’ is about the uncomfortable familiarity I have with someone I was once in a relationship with,” says Alexander of the follow-up to the infectious “IDK You Yet.” “It’s strange to know someone’s deepest, darkest secrets, but not be up to date on their daily setbacks and triumphs—to truly be in between ‘lovers’ and ‘strangers.'”

“Caught In The Middle” Lyrics:

You went and called me for the first time in a year
But then no words came out
Oh-oh-oh-oh
We used to kiss and say I love you
Now we never say nothing at all
Oh-oh-oh-oh
We’re caught in the middle

Sometimes I think about your dog and wonder
If she thinks I passed away
Oh-oh-oh-oh
I guess a part of me is dead now so
I guess she’s right in a strange way
Oh-oh-oh-oh
We’re caught in the middle
Oh-oh
We’re caught in the middle
Oh-oh

[Chorus]

We’re caught in the middle of lovers and strangers
You know everything about me except how my day was
Ain’t it funny how we used to say I love you
Now we don’t say nothing at all?

Your best friend told my best friend
That you went and moved out of the USAOh-oh-oh-oh
I’m happy for you and I’m happy
Not to worry that we’re in the same coffee place
Yeah, we’re caught in the middle
Oh-oh
We’re caught in the middle
Oh-oh

[Chorus]

We’re caught in the middle of lovers and strangers
You know everything about me except how my day was
Ain’t it funny how we used to say I love you
Now we don’t say nothing at

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
(Caught in the middle)
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
(Caught in the middle)
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
(Caught in the middle)
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
(Caught in the middle)

Lovers and strangers
I know everything about you, except how your day was
Ain’t it funny how we used to say I love you
Now we don’t say nothing at all
