The day you're born they sign a piece of paper
To certify the date of your birth
And the day you die they sign another
Just to prove you've gone back to the earth

And between those two pieces of paper
There's the truth that is so hard to find
And the story of your life is written ' , but
You must read in between the lines

Now when you're young you think it doesn't matter
If you leap before you look
But those old folks are wiser and sadder
From the chances that they took

Now when your chance comes along, you must take it
Just be careful and take your time
And the chances are good you will make it
If you could read in between the lines

And when someone tells you they love you
And that no one has ever loved you more
It is wise to stop and consider how many
Times they might have said that before

Because when love leaves you cryin'
You will surely lose your mind
And you might have known love was lying
If you could read in between the lines
