Between the lines

sometimes I think I don’t really know you
times like that make me feel frustrated
sublimes we could be but we couldn’t get through
lifetimes we’re aiming if we could be blessed

reading you between the lines is quite hard
and then I should always be on guard
asking whether I got it right with that regard
hand in hand we should be to get our reward*
