Middle of Nowhere is a song performed by Selena Gomez & the Scene which appears as the eleventh track on their third album, When the Sun Goes Down.

Background

This song was written by Espen Lind, who makes up one half of the Norwegian songwriting and music production team Espionage, as well as by Carmen Key, whose credits include Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me” and the French producer Sandy Vee. Selena told Billboard magazine: “‘Middle of Nowhere’ is also one of my mom’s favorites. She definitely loves jamming out to that song. It’s just beautiful. If you just read the lyrics without listening to the music, it’s really beautiful. I didn’t write that one but it’s gorgeous and I feel like everybody can related to it. Then you add all the fun pop beats and synths behind the song and it just really makes you want to move. It felt like the music and the lyrics worked out so perfectly together.”

Lyrics

You left me spinning like a disco
Trying but I don't know
If I can stand straight
You took me left when you knew I was right
And now I gotta fight just to make it through the day

I never knew what you were capable of
Baby, I would've kept my heart
But I gave it up
Baby, I fell in love
Now I don't know where to start

[Chorus:]
It's so cold with nobody to hold me
You're so wrong for leaving when you told me
You would never leave me by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere
Now I'm lost
Trying to make it on my own
I thought I could never do this alone,
But now I'm walking by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere

You left me broken like a record
Baby, I'm hurt and I don't want to play anymore
Missed every sign
Believed every lie
And I was waiting for more

I never knew what you were capable of
Baby, I would've kept my heart
But I gave it up
Baby, I fell in love
Now I don't know where to start

[Chorus:]
It's so cold with nobody to hold me
You're so wrong for leaving when you told me
You would never leave me by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere
Now I'm lost
Trying to make it on my own
I thought I could never do this alone,
But now I'm walking by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere

You took my heart off my sleeve
But now I'm taking it back, back
Baby, here I come
You took advantage of me
I don't appreciate that, that
You son of a gun

It's so cold with nobody to hold me
You're so wrong for leaving when you told me
You would never leave me by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere

[Chorus:]
It's so cold with nobody to hold me
You're so wrong for leaving when you told me
You would never leave me by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere
Now I'm lost
Trying to make it on my own
I thought I could never do this alone,
But now I'm walking by myself
Out in the middle of nowhere
