Hanging by a String

Hanging by a String
By Kevin Robey
November 9, 2013

I’ve been holding on for too long
To the branches of our hearts
The connection still feeling strong
But I know it’s gone and we’re apart

Saw you yesterday, two pillows on your bed
Runaway my mind, just let it sail away
In and out my head with all the things you said
The voices up above tell me what to say

Back and forth through these tireless crimes
Flashing every time I see your fading smile
Just let me go, I’ll forget you over time
Stop looking for me in every store aisle

In the places we both know
I can feel you next to me
But I’m too proud to let it show
It hurts that you’re replacing me

So while I'm hanging by a string
Don’t tell me your emergencies
Forget the lies that gave me wings
The branches break, I’ll falling free

*listening to*
["voices on a string" by Thursday]
