In Between

by Steve Cavin

I never gave you my heart,

But the door was opened wide.

I never forced you to take part,

But I offered you a ride.


I never told you what to do

But I helped to carry the load.

I never took you, it is true.

But I put your feet on the road.


I never told you what to say,

But I questioned what you said.

I never made you see it my way,

But I listened instead.


I never asked you to give in,

But I never left the scene.

I didn't lose, I didn't win,

But hung out in between.
