One string after another
snapping taut
to the breaking point
It's a tug-of-war
between "It's all about you"
and "It's all about me"
but I'm not pulling hard enough
I'm losing myself in you
And the strings start breaking
one by one
And I struggle not to start screaming
and never stop
And you don't see it coming,
you're only confused
And I can't use my words
like you told me
there's only emotion and
pain and
heartbreak and
confusion and
broken trust that'll never be whole
and I need you to never take this away
the writing that prolongs my life day-to-day
It can't be all about you
this is the last string
don't let it break
