Two Minds

I’m in two minds

Yours and mine

Caught between two worlds

All the time

The closer I am to you

The further I am from me

The more that I have to lose

The more you are free

You leave me in suspension

Vying for my own attention

Let me go

Cos I can see your eyes

And you eyes won’t fix on mine

And you can say what you like

You say what you like

But I’m so lonely with you

I’m so lonely with you

In my heart of hearts

I’d like to depart

And stop harping back

To who we were at the start

The longer I leave me here

The longer it will take to return

So I see in your eyes

A bridge I must burn

And I’ll be in suspension

Til I stage my intervention

Let me go

Cos I can see your eyes

And you eyes won’t fix on mine

And you can say what you like

You say what you like

But I’m so lonely with you

I’m so lonely with you

I’ll never find all that you’re trying to hide

So it’s time

You can’t read my lips and I won’t read your mind

So it’s time

Cos I can see your eyes

And you eyes won’t fix on mine

And you can say what you like

You say what you like

 

 

Let go (if you let go)

Kiss me quietly

Until I learn

To hold these tears back

Until they burn

And yes I want this

But that’s not enough

So hold me here

Til it’s too tough

Kiss me blindly

So I can hide

All I’d have to say

With my mouth open wide

I want to want this

But that’s not enough

So I’ll hold on

Til it’s too tough

-so push me push me

Push my words til they fall out

Of heavy hearts and open mouths

Push me to say what we both know

I’ll let go if you let go

Hold me gently

And watch me glow

With questions to answers

I already know

And yes I feel this

But it’s too much

So hold me here til it’s too tough

Touch my body

See if it works

I’ll hold my heart still

Delay the hurt

Cos yes I love you

But that’s not enough

When holding on and

letting go are too tough

-would you push me push me

Push my words til they fall out

Of heavy hearts and open mouths

Push me to say what we both know

I’ll let go if you let go

Hold yourself against me any way you like

Rest your weight on my shoulders for one more night

And be honest with me or I’ll be honest for you I’ll be honest for you

I’ll be honest for you

If you push me push me

 

 

Surrender

I keep my thoughts beneath my skin
Hard to touch but easy peel
You scream your thoughts into my ear
Still it’s hard to hear
Now my heartbeat is leading the percussion
Blood runs like there’s somewhere to go
And my body swings from feeling hollow
To overflow

So surrender
I surrender to this moment
Let your guard down
I didn’t want to be defensive
Lose your senses
And now my sense is  flying at me
Surrender

I stare at the truth for a while
Like applying pressure can change it’s state
And if it’s only true that time will heal
I’ll just have to wait
And I want to leave you where I found you
And I can’t work out why I won’t
And I wish I wished I’d never met you
But I don’t

So surrender
I surrender to this moment
Let your guard down
I didn’t want to be defensive
Lose your senses
And now my sense is flying at me
Surrender

You watched me love you
And you watched me fall
And you didn’t push me
How could I blame you at all?
You watched me love you
And you watched me fall
And you didn’t stop me
At all

 

Wring me out

I tried to float away but I’m home again
The moon told the tide to bring me
My heart was heavy and my pride was sore
Now my skin is thicker than that one I wore
And despite myself

And you wring me out
You wring me out

When my hands betray me and my will is weak
You hear my secrets in my silent defeat
Because you dare to notice what I don’t dare to know
And I just watch you turn me into skin and bones
And despite myself

You wring me out
You wring me out
You wring me out
You wring me out
You wring me out

When the water moves so fast
It won’t hold my reflection
I see you
And you save me through the waves
