"The Show" as written by and Reeves/kripac....
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze, and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go
Can't do it alone
I've tried, and I don't know why

Slow it down, make it stop
Or else my heart is going to pop
Cause its to much, yeah its a lot
To be something I'm not

I'm a fool, out of love
'Cause I just can't get enough

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze, and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go
Can't do it alone
I've tried, and I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out
It's bringing me down
I know, I've got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky
Just like a giant spot light
The people follow the signs
And synchronize in time

It's a joke, no body knows
They've got a ticket to that show
Yeah

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze, and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go
Can't do it alone
I've tried, and I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out
It's bringing me down
I know, I've got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

Just enjoy the show

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze, and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go
Can't do it alone
I've tried, and I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out
It's bringing me down
I know, I've got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

Just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show

I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back

Just enjoy the show

I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back

Just enjoy the show

    General CommentThis song is so cute! I think she's trying to say that life is often unsettling and hard to figure out, sometimes leaving you overwhelmed. She compares life itself to a show, which I think is really creative. Sometimes you have to let go and enjoy it, even when it isn't so good (I want my money back). Everyone's got tickets to this show, and should make the best of it while it's going on!

    General CommentOk first things first...I think these lyrics are right. The only bit I was unsure of was 'out of luck' because it could be 'out of love' but that didn't seem to fit right.

    Meanings pretty simple: Someone who is confused about life and love when growing up. She's telling herself to just relax and enjoy her life instead of trying to understand it I think

    General CommentIt reminds me of the saying "All the worlds a stage, and and all the men and women merely players."

    It's an awesome song

    General CommentI think this song is about someone trying to find out who they are in life, but they want to enjoy it as well, and in the end, i dont think they care about whether or not they've found themselves, they're just going to enjoy life anyway!

    General CommentI think it's about how life can really really hard and upsetting sometimes and even if you hste the way things are turning out and you're trying to change some things in your life that you should stop trying to control them and just let everything unfold by itself therefore you should just sit back and watch and enjoy.

    General CommentI've had this song on repeat in my head ... It's exactly how I feel. My boyfriend and I just broke up and he just wants to just be friends and well, I feel caught in the middle. I don't want to be his friend, but I can't do life alone. Lately I've just been sitting around, watching my surroundings ... just enjoying the show.

    General CommentGorgeous song.
    It's like she knows life can be hard and she's okay with that. She's just really having a great time. She compares the sun to a spotlight, like she's having fun being on the stage with everyone else in the show.
