Dawes – Between The Zero And The One Lyrics

Between The Zero And The One Lyrics by Dawes

When they sat down at the Ouija board
He could feel her fingers move
Trying to find their future with her hands
Turning to the spirit world
Looking for some cosmic clue
In a language that they both might understand

But she wasn’t looking for a remedy
She knew she’d break his heart
She just wanted to go quietly
Like it was written in the stars
But it all comes out eventually
No matter how hard you resist
That might be a harsh reality
But that’s the only kind there is

It’s not the whisper in your ear
It’s not the banging of the drum
It’s not the person that you were
It’s not the person you become
It’s not where you’re headed to
And it’s not where you’re coming from
The only life you’re gonna live
Is out between the zero and the one
Out between the zero and the one

When she shuffled all the tarot cards
He could see her stack the deck
But still turned up the Tower and the Moon
Which she then tried to disregard
And clutched the crystal ’round her neck
While they both felt a presence leave the room

And he finally saw the difference
Between her history and her past
How she’s been looking for deliverance
From something she will never grasp
She even had the nerve to tell him
That she tried hard as she could
It’s like she never even loved him
As much as the reasons why she should

It’s not the whisper in your ear
It’s not the banging of the drum
It’s not the person that you were
It’s not the person you become
It’s not where you’re headed to
And it’s not where you’re coming from
The only life you’re gonna live
Is out between the zero and the one
Out between the zero and the one
Out between the zero and the one
Out between the zero and the one

So she can mistake these superstitions
For the excuses that she needs
To keep explaining her condition
To the few friends she can keep
But don’t give them another thought
There’s no need for us to dwell
They are fine and they are not
Just like everybody else
Yeah like everybody else

It’s not the whisper in your ear
It’s not the banging of the drum
It’s not the person that you were
It’s not the person you become
It’s not where you’re headed to
And it’s not where you’re coming from
The only life you’re gonna live
Is out between the zero and the one
Is out between the zero and the one
Out between the zero and the one
