***MIDDLE MAN**** 33333333333333

Not exactly gung-ho about the chorus in its present state. All thoughts, comments, critiques and the like are greatly appreciated.

--Peter


MIDDLE MAN


Lyrics by Peter Merz

That tug-o-war you're feeling now
Is a warning flag
Your happy ending just cried, “Foul!”
And a torn-out page
Would have better luck than you
That pull on your soul
Means heads they win, tails you lose
Oh-no, you've just become the center that won't hold

CHORUS
Middle Man, Middle Man
Broken already, and breaking still
Middle Man, Middle Man
Pain is your steady, heart aching still
When you're the Middle, Middle Man
When you're the Middle, Middle Man

Some days you’re the most hated ref
You don’t get no slack
Two sides putting you to the test
Wanting to change hats
‘Cause you’re feeling battered and bruised
But you’ve just been made
So heads they win, tails you lose
Oh-no, this is much more than just one man can take

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

BRIDGE
But Jesus was a Middle Man, too
Stuck between two criminals on a cross of pain
A Roman Coin tossed in the air,
The crowds yelled, “Heads we win, tails you lose!”
But that Middle Man kept giving His love away
No matter how long, or unfair

REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO
Middle Man, Jesus knows just what it’s like
He hears your prayers, and He really cares
Jesus was a Middle Man, too
Middle Man, I think you’ll find you got a lot more fight
And when life gets unfair, go cast your cares
On Jesus and He’ll see you through
For Jesus was a Middle Man, too

Peter,

Thinking of https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?se...ersion=NLT, I kept wondering that instead of "Jesus was a middle man", if Jesus is a middle man would be more appropriate. "Stuck between two criminals"  clarified what you intended.

"You don’t get no slack." Double negatives are not what I would expect to write, but I'm not the artist named Peter, also. Cool

The capitalized M's in Middle Man do reference your title. For written lyrics though, lower-casing man would bring explanation of how Jesus could be stuck between those two criminals.
From death he did rise and will come again.
Move on with him now to be ready for then.
