Holding on to Air

No
Don't drop it
Don't let me go
Grab my hand again
And just let me know
I'm still loved

Grabbing on to something that was never there
Holding on to something that's no stronger than air
Letting myself believe that you won't ever let go
Falling to the ground, but I didn't know

I was
Holding on to air
Grabbing on to you
Pretending you would hold me like you never do
I was
Clinging on your sleeve
Hoping you believed in me
Asking you to keep on hanging on to me
I was holding on to air

Free
Don't set me free
Don't give me that s***
About how your helping me
Please don't let go of me
Your everything I want
Everything I need

Grabbing on to something that was never there
Holding on to something that's no stronger than air
Letting myself believe that you won't ever let go
Falling to the ground, but I didn't know

I was
Holding on to air
Grabbing on to you
Pretending you would hold me like you never do
I was
Clinging on your sleeve
Hoping you believed in me
Asking you to keep on hanging on to me
I was holding on to air

It may be obsession
It may be an illusion
It may be addiction
But I hoped you would always be
Be right there next to me

Grabbing on to something that was never there
Holding on to something that's no stronger than air
Letting myself believe that you won't ever let go
Falling to the ground, but I didn't know

I was
Holding on to air
Grabbing on to you
Pretending you would hold me like you never do
I was
Clinging on your sleeve
Hoping you believed in me
Asking you to keep on hanging on to me
I was holding on to air
