Lifeline

Holding onto shadows

Bend to soothe my aching heart

Still breathing in your exhale

From miles and miles and miles apart

 

I hold onto you like you are a memory

One that I can’t stand losing

You are an integral part of me

Just like the child that I was is to me now

 

Rounding out a corner

Smoothing over an edge

Trying to take all the pieces

And make a safe and comfortable ledge

 

I hold onto you like you are a memory

One that I can’t stand losing

You are an integral part of me

Just like the child that I was is to me now

 

I hope it’s okay

All the little ways

That make us never have to come down

I don’t want it to change

All the little ways

That make us never have to come down

 

Holding onto old ways

Making it better or worse

Tangled in the lifelines

We once made for ourselves

 

I hold onto you like you are a memory

One that I can’t stand losing

You are an integral part of me

Just like the child that I was is to me now
