Press-On Wings

Note: this song kind of explains itself (which is a bad excuse for not knowing how to explain it)

Press-On Wings

Tell me why I fell in love with you
Tell me why you made me smile
For hours I could talk to you
Hand in hand we'd walk for miles
That was our life but life's not fair
Tell me, why do I still have to care

I miss the times when we could
Talk, just talk about random things
Like our favourite songs and if we had wings
But press-on wings flew me away from you
And I thought I was strong, thought I could cope
But the link was weak and the velcro broke
And I fell apart without you

Tell me why I had to go and lose you
Tell me why that made me cry
Secretly I know I didn't have to chose to
Say goodbye
You were my life but life's not fair
You don't know how much I still care

I miss the times when we could
Talk, just talk about random things
Like our favourite songs and if we had wings
But press-on wings flew me away from you
And I thought I was strong, thought I could cope
But the link was weak and the velcro broke
And I fell apart without you

No words can explain the way I felt that day
As I said the words that tore us apart
No words can explain the look upon your face
As I said the words that tore out our hearts

No we don't talk about anything
We're strangers now after everything
'Cause press-on wings flew me away from you
Wasn't strong, couldn't fight it
Cried myself to sleep at night
And I fell apart without you

I miss the times when we could
Talk, just talk about random things
Like our favourite songs and if we had wings
But press-on wings flew me away from you
And I thought I was strong, thought I could cope
But the link was weak and the velcro broke
And I fell apart without you

The End
