"Inside These Lines" as written by Jamie S. Kenney and Trent Dabbs....
Who is the one I see across the table
Eyes that always seem so familiar
We sit alone so comfortably in the silence
If I touch you would you be surprised
Did we drift out closer to a compromise

Oh have we lost what we had inside these, inside these lines
Could we watch it stay the same, all this time and just be fine
It's okay to see where we are, where we should be
But are we gonna find ourselves insides these lines, inside these lines
Inside these lines

Your skin is next to mine, I can feel you
We've learned to pass the time in the same room
So remind me of how the world stood still
We were shining, living just to taste the thrill

Oh have we lost what we had inside these, inside these lines
Could we watch it stay the same, all this time and just be fine
It's okay to see where we are, and where we should be
Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines

Circle render me, yeah
With the lines we've drawn I believe that
Circle render me, yeah
With the lines we've drawn I believe that

Have we lost what we had inside these, inside these lines
Could we watch it stay the same, all this time and just be fine
It's okay to see where we are, and where we should be
Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines

Are we gonna find ourselves
Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines

    General Commenti find this song to be about two people that were in a past relationship when he says..

    "Whose the one I see,
    Across the table,
    Eyes that always seem, so familiar"

    to me it sounds that hes saying that its a person that comes in goes in his life when he says,"eyes that always seem, so familiar". and when he talks about a compromise i feel he is talking about if they have both realized the feelings they still have for one another.and all through the chores he speaks about if they could stay the same..meaning that he really still has strong feelings for her and he wants to be together and maybe she doesnt..and so on..its a sad and desperate song with a feeling of heart felt love and no being able to capture it or atleast have the other one feel the same..to me..its a song of my life..

    General CommentI love this song but I think there are a couple of mistakes in your lyrics. Here's what I hear:
    Who's the one I see across the table?
    Eyes that always seem, so familiar
    We sit alone so comfortably in the silence
    If I touch you would you be surprised?
    Did we drift out closer to a compromise?

    Have we lost what we had inside these lines, inside these lines?
    Could we watch and stay the same, all this time and just be fine?
    It's ok to see where we are, where we shouldn't be
    Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines
    Insides these lines

    Your skin is next to mine, I can feel you
    We learn to pass the time in the same room
    So remind me of how the world stood still
    We were shining, living just to taste the thrill

    Have we lost what we had inside these lines, inside these lines?
    Could we watch and stay the same, all this time and just be fine?
    It's ok to see where we are, where we shouldn't be
    But are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines?

    Circling the meaning
    with the lines we've drawn when I believe it
    Circling the meaning
    with the lines we've drawn when I believe it

    Have we lost what we had inside these lines, inside these lines?
    Could we watch and stay the same, all this time and just be fine?
    It's ok to see where we are, where we shouldn't be
    Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines?
    Are we gonna find ourselves?
    Are we gonna find ourselves inside these lines, inside these lines?

    Feel free to make any corrections, that's just what I hear

    General CommentThis one is easy. It's about a divorce clearly. I think I heard him say that once in an interview.
    And the music video seems to back it up.
    It can just is easily be about a fading love.
