Don’t Hold On Too Tightly

 

Don’t hold on too tightly

I can never put anybody

In front of me

Never has anyone stood above me

 

And I understand that’s the sacrifice

In vulnerability

Don’t fall in love with me

Or you’ll be so confused when

As easily as I can make you come

I can always go

To fall too deeply for anybody

Is impossible because

There’s some parts of me

That I’ll never show

 

Don’t hold on too tightly

I’ve broken the tightest grasps before

Left the closest friends

And the deepest loves

The strongest bonds

Lonely at the door

 

Do not get too close

Don’t believe I’m what you need most

Cause I can instantly be a ghost

 

Don’t ask for too much

Because when it’s too much

I scramble to throw the cargo overboard

So the plane stays up

 

And you may be a sacrificed piece

In order to keep my peace

And in order to cease

The tension between us

It’s better if I say “peace”

Just pretend I am deceased

Don’t hold on too tightly

Or you’ll never be at ease
