Verse 1

It's a cycle that goes on and on.

Some days you know me, some days I'm invisible.

I try to break out of these chains.

I try to run and hide from you, but every time I fail.

Chorus

And it's like a yo-yo,

It's pull and push, pull and push, again and again.

One day push comes to shove, and that's when

I open my eyes and look around,

I see I'm standing alone in the playground.

And the swing keeps moving

Back and forth, back and forth, again and again.

That's exactly how you keep driving me insane.

Verse 2

It's a very thin thread joining us.

It's easy to break, but it's tangled in so many knots.

It hurts to pull it out of my heart.

Every pull makes it bleed; it feels like a gun-shot.

Chorus

And it's like a yo-yo,

It's pull and push, pull and push, again and again.

One day push comes to shove, and that's when

I open my eyes and look around,

I see I'm standing alone in the playground.

And the swing keeps moving

Back and forth, back and forth, again and again.

That's exactly how you keep driving me insane.

Bridge

I've been your toy,

I've been way too coy,

But now every time you pull, I'll push you away.

I'll centrifuge out of this circle some day.

Chorus

And it's like a yo-yo,

It's pull and push, pull and push, again and again.

One day push comes to shove, and that's when

I open my eyes and look around,

I see I'm standing alone in the playground.

And the swing keeps moving

Back and forth, back and forth, again and again.

That's exactly how you keep driving me insane.
