Musical Monday: Halfway Down the Stairs


My boss bought this last Thursday, and let all of us take a listen. I LOVE the Muppets Green Album that just came out. And for some reason, this song really jumped out at me. I think it's lovely, and wish I could have played it on Love Hangovers, because I think it's a great metaphor for a lot of things...like a lyrical version of Robert Frost's "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening".



Halfway Down the Stairs, by Amy Lee
Halfway down the stairs is a stair where I sit.
There isn't any other stair quite like it.
I'm not at the bottom, I'm not at the top.
So this is the stair where I always stop.


Halfway up the stairs isn't up and isn't down.
It isn't in the nursery, it isn't in the town.
And all sorts of funny thoughts run round my head.
It isn't really anywhere, it's somewhere else instead.


Halfway down the stairs is a stair where I sit.
There isn't any other stair quite like it.
I'm not at the bottom, I'm not at the top.
So this is the stair where I always stop.
