Captive

February 26, 2010

I thought this way would be better
That maybe my heart would stay tucked inside
But I think I wore my heart on my sleeve
And unknowingly you achieved
To take it captive

I’m trying so hard to reel it back in
But it’s not working

Now I’m scared
I don’t know where this is leading
Yes you promised me you would never leave
But that was then
And this is now
I don’t know how you did
I don’t know how you managed
But you took my heart captive
So now what’s going to happen

What’s going to happen to my heart
Remember you claimed this would last forever
I was naïve believed everything you said
Now you are dangling my heart by a single thread

I’m trying so hard to reel it back in
But it’s not working

Now I’m scared
I don’t know where this is leading
Yes you promised me you would never leave
But that was then
And this is now
I don’t know how you did
I don’t know how you managed
But you took my heart captive
So now what’s going to happen

Thank you so much! And it is actually put to music.
