Put my heart in your hand but it’s just not enough,
I say it’s all okay but why can’t we make up?
Letting you go but I’m still holding on
I should give up but my feelings are strong.

I love you so much that I cannot let go
Each looks like an ember red hot with a glow
I’m scared to death and I’m letting it show
I just thought that I’d let you know

I’m like putty in your hands and I’m feeling weak
One passing glance and I forget how to speak
I’m dropping pencils on purpose and biting my nails
I’ve never believed in children’s fairly tails

Everything is magic so is everything I feel
You can’t deny what we have here is real
Everything is wrong, not much of it is right
I toss and I turn in my bed every night

I’m sitting here and thinking about all of this stuff
We’re trying to be friends, we’re trying to make up
Put my heart in your hand but it’s just not enough
I say it’s all okay but why can’t we make up?

I should have held your hand when you grasped my thumb
I should have did what the world’s undone
Should have went down to Alum Creek
But my mind was heavy and my heart was weak
I should have danced on your porch that night
It might have made my walk home light
But I can’t go back into time
All I can do is sit and rhyme

I was searching for something to hold onto
You were asking for someone to belong to
I needed you to stick around a little longer
You thought I would be a little stronger
Why did you go and let me down
Why couldn’t you just stick around
Let my heart go where it hasn’t in awhile
I shouldn’t have fallen for your silly smile
You thought I was in the way
Lift my heart up and I pray
Maybe this is not the end
Maybe we can still be friends
I don’t wanna be less than your lover
Why did you have to go and leave me for another
I was weak for you
Now look what I’m going through
