How can I cut out the Pain?
Cut out the Feelings?
Without saying goodbye?
The truth is that I know I should
purchase a new pattern
and stop clinging to the old one
But you will always be one
of the most inspiring fabrics
I've ever seen. The one I'll always
Something I never got to fully explore
A design that I couldn't get anyone else to fit
So I modeled you at home
And slowly I fell for your charms
You became something special to me
And that's when our friendship changed
I'm tryng to figure out
how to make alterations
to us without ruining the whole garment.
How can I still spare some pieces of you and me
once change gets it's way?
I want you in my life regardless.
And I said I'd be there no matter what
But when the pain gets involved
I'm gonna have to do everything in my power
not to perform my normal reaction which is to run
I'm trying to figure out how I would keep that promise.
How I could still be in your life without the extra attachments.
Is that even possible once I take the scizzor and cut all
of these feelings and unravel us?
