"Between Two Worlds" as written by David Francis Baerwald, Gerald Goffin and Louise Lynn Goffin....
Off ion the distance
A cool wind is blowing
I'm not who I was
And I'm not where I'm going

I'm so tired of knowing
That there's no way of knowing
You left me stranded
Between two worlds

You turned me into a mixed up girl
You left me stranded between two worlds
Two worlds
Is it nicer where you are?

Do you ever think of me?
Is it easier now
That you don't have to love me?
Like a fool I allowed you

To coddle and drug me
And the you left me stranded
Between two worlds
You turned me into a mixed up girl

You left me stranded between two worlds
Two worlds
A weak shadow of death
Across a bowl of bitter milk

I borrowed symbols
On my funeral silk
Reflections of you
In each fall's drooling rain

And still you stay with me
Like a knife in my brain
You left me stranded
Between two worlds

You turned me into a mixed up girl
You left me stranded between two worlds
Two worlds
Two worlds

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the writer's relationship with his/her primary childhood caregiver/parent. There are references to milk and coddling. I think the writer has stopped communication with the caregiver. "Is it easier for you now that you don't have to love me?" It seems likely the parent was a dying drug addict, as there are references to her being drugged, a funeral silk, and drooling rain. "And still you stay with me, like a knife in my brain" seems to refer to the fact that a child's brain is epigenetically developed by experiences with caregivers.
