hold onto me.

We both like comfort

We met halfway

But we have our problems

So neither will want to stay

Because to stay long enough

Would mean we’d dive too deep

But I still want you to hold

Onto me, hold onto me

 

You’re a drifter

I’m a dreamer

We have these differing ideals

Except when in close proximity

Your covers are mine to half-heartedly steal

 

Still we’d long to cling like

Vines to trees

So hold onto me, hold

Onto me

 

You say if we get close and dive too deep

You’d be devastated if I’d hate you –

And leave

So you stay away

And I understand that wish to avoid the pain –

 

Could you comfort me anyways?

 

Like bright eyes would croon in a voice strangled speak:

If you love something set it free.
