Song of the Day #3,612: ‘The Middle’ – Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

What do you know, back to back country performers in Billboard’s Top Ten! Maren Morris follows up her well-received 2016 album Hero by serving vocal duties on an EDM track by German DJ Zedd.

‘The Middle’ doesn’t exactly sound like a country/dance crossover. In fact, it was recorded by a laundry list of well-known performers before reaching Morris. Everybody from Tove Lo to Camila Cabello, Carly Rae Jepsen to Demi Lovato.

I don’t know that this would have been more or less of a hit by any of those artists, but it’s certainly done well in Morris’ hands.

[Verse 1: Maren Morris]
Take a seat
Right over there, sat on the stairs
Stay or leave
The cabinets are bare, and I’m unaware
Of just how we got into this mess, got so aggressive
I know we meant all good intentions

[Pre-Chorus: Maren Morris]
So pull me closer
Why don’t you pull me close?
Why don’t you come on over?
I can’t just let you go

[Chorus: Maren Morris]
Oh baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
In the middle
Baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
In the middle

[Verse 2: Maren Morris]
Ohh, take a step
Back for a minute, into the kitchen
Floors are wet
And taps are still running, dishes are broken
How did we get into this mess? Got so aggressive
I know we meant all good intentions

[Pre-Chorus: Maren Morris]
So pull me closer
Why don’t you pull me close
Why don’t you come on over
I can’t just let you go, oh

[Chorus: Maren Morris]
Oh baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
In the middle

[Bridge: Maren Morris]
Looking at you, I can’t lie
Just pouring out admission
Regardless of my objection, oh, oh
And it’s not about my pride
I need you on my skin
Just come over, pull me in, just

[Chorus: Maren Morris]
Oh, baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
In the middle, no no
Baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
Oh yeah, I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle?
Oh, in the middle
Baby-y-y, why don’t you just meet me in the middle, baby?
I’m losing my mind just a little
So why don’t you just meet me in the middle, middle?
In the middle, middle
