Holding Onto You Letting Me Go


The growing on to me, of this story

Does it make sense to me though?

It's kind of sad

The kind of way of a Godly man

Hesitatingly, I'm divided into pages

What's the meaning of consumption?

I still love you

'Cause you're what's left of my youth

That you gave back to me

When your boyfriend invited me to your home

I guess that's when I lost you all

I had a big great fall

And soon I know

I'll never get back up

As if you could ever read

The pages of how I felt for you

When your man left

And when I gave my heart to you

Even if it was behind your back

But I'm crying out lines

Of such a heavy burden

I want the tears

To come out of my throat

But I know they won't

I'm sorry

But if you wanted me to choke

Well, fuck you

I won't

I'll just keep on going

Like you thought I won't

Like you think I don't

Well, get the Hell out of my mind

And fuck what you say

Maybe I'll just believe that you are gay
