“My hands are shaking, don’t let my heart keep breaking”…

~

Her love’s so overwhelming…
Sometimes he just can’t breathe…
It’s like he’s suffocating…
So he really needs to leave…

And find a quiet place…
Somewhere to be alone…
Far away from her company…
Switching off his phone…

It’s not that he doesn’t love her…
Or mean he doesn’t care…
But like a deep sea diver…
He needs to come up for air…

It’s a constant fight for freedom…
A battle to find some space…
And because there is no balance…
He needs to escape from this place…

Her words are quite abusive…
And getting out of control…
He can’t tolerate her mood swings…
  Her depression drains his soul…

It drags him beneath the surface…
Chains and anchors him down…
This weight is too much for him…
He just can’t bear to be around…

So he looks for distraction…
A detachment from reality…
The only way he finds peace…
And keeps in touch with sanity…

He wishes he could change things…
And that her eyes could see…
The damage all around her…
But her ears ignore his plea…

So he keeps on going…
Doing all he possibly can…
Trying so hard to explain…
But he’s just a simple man…

He loves her without question…
Though it’s hard to breathe…
And even when he’s suffocating…
She knows he’ll never leave…
