lyrics

How do I keep it safe?
Lock everything away
Keep it from the light

How do I make you stay?
Boarded and bricked away
Keep you in the night

Hold on to me

If you might not come back to me
Why should I ever set you free?
If you don’t belong to me
You still should be mine

If my heart’s a cage
Then at least that keeps you safe
If I clip your wings
Don’t try to fly
Why don’t you sing?

Oh to be so adored
Isn’t that what we’re for?
What else could you need?

Everything here is yours
Everything but that door
That belongs to me

Hold on to me
Why won’t you hold on to me?

If I clip your wings
Don’t try to fly
Why won’t you sing?

If I clip your wings
Don’t cry
Just sing
