"Man in the Middle" as written by and Barry Alan/gibb Gibb....
You've got a plan that could never go wrong.
You took advantage and the damage done.
It all comes back to me, baby.
It all comes back to me.

I played the fool and I went off the track.
And when I think of all it cost,
When the dice was cast,
You know I had to be crazy,
You know I had to be.

I've been telling lies,
And you forgive me but my heart still cries.
And you can understand

I'm just the man in the middle
Of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the signs.
I'm just a creature of habit
In a complicated world.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide, to hide....

I know I let you down in so many ways.
I know that sorry doesn't tell you
What you need me to say.
But, I would die for you, baby.
Yes, I would die for you.

I've been in disguise.
And you forgive me and our love will rise.
And you can understand

I'm just the man in the middle
Of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the light.
Ah,yes, I'm weary from battle
But I've just begun to fight.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man in the middle
Of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the signs.
I'm just a creature of habit
In a complicated world.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide

I'm just the man in the middle
Of a complicated plan
No one to show me the light.
Ah, yes, I'm weary from battle
But I've just begun to fight.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man in the middle.
The only man.
The fool of a man in the middle.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man.
The only man.
That stupid man.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide

    General CommentSince Maurice is singing on this Bee Gees Song, I am thinking that it might really be a Song about being a part of the Group's trio, and being caught in the middle between Barry and Robin, and having to be the mediator in conflict. Robin said in an interview that he and Barry had both quit the group , but that Morris had never done so.

    General CommentCont... " the complicated plan" is trying to hold the group together through all the fussing and feuding. I think they brought us some great music. I am forever grateful that they did keep it together.
